Messy 4-Braid Up-do!

 This morning I woke up with some time to peruse the blogs I follow. Thank goodness I did! KLP over at Saving Our Strands brought this up-do to my attention. I am not really an up-do type of chick but it looked so beautiful on her hair and the directions were simple enough, I decided to give it a go. Directions can be found on her blog. I did the Green House Effect for an hour or two with Giovanni Direct Leave-in and water. Applied my oil mix and proceeded to attempt this do. Four braids, pin 'em and receive compliments!
After being under my scarf for 15 minutes

Hair a few hours later

Next time I will try and be a little messier but I really loved this posh look. Red lips and pearls to pull it altogether! I can not wait to see what KLP has in stored for the rest of Hot Holiday Hair. 

Before bed, I will remove a few pins and and put my scarf on. Tomorrow I will either have a braid-out or wash my hair.
