Half Up Holiday Hair

5 flights, 5 airplanes, 4 cities, 3 countries, 2 days spent in California (& 2 spent traveling) 1 lost bag and 1 tired lady.
I left Thursday morning from France, got into LA Thursday night, went straight to the salon where I got my new bangs! (love you Sue!)  Spent Friday with my mom shopping, hanging out, and doing hair tutorials.  Saturday we filmed all day, got to have lunch with my dad on Wilshire since he was working all weekend.  Shopped at a cute little fabric store and came home to have dinner with my mom, brother, sister-in-law and beautiful niece.  Woke up bright and early Sunday morning, met my parents for coffee at the airport, almost missed my flight and I was off.  Talk about a whirlwind weekend!!  But I loved it, these are the things in life that I will look back on and be glad I did.  
I have a hair tutorial for ya today!  My mom and I were able to bust out like 4 different ones, which was awesome.  I am trying to take into consideration the holidays when doing these hair tutorials, so you can have ideas for you dinner parties etc.  
This one is a simple half up or you can continue it and have it be a kinda twisted waterfall.  That sounds bad, like the waterfall is messed up or something.  Hopefully, after you see the pics and watch the video you’ll see what I mean…

And what do you think of my new haircut?  Do I look 12 years old?

I love my stylist, too, she is fan-stinkin-tastic.  Here’s the video, enjoy!


I hope your weekend was great.  I am linking this up to my linky parties here.

Happy Tuesday!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and I am soooo glad that I did! Ummmm how freaking awesome is it that you live in Paris? I've spent lots of time in France and it's by far my most favorite place on earth. I haven't been back in several years, but I'm a true Francophile, haha.

    I LOVE the bangs! I have wanted them for quite some time but I'm afraid I don't have the face for them.

    Check my blog out and subscribe if you'd like! I am slowly starting out, and I plan on doing a huge giveaway when I get 50 subscribers!
