V-Day Outfit and Hair Challenge Link Up #6

Can you believe it's week 6 of the Hair Challenge?! Crazy talk I tell ya.

Last Wednesday I just wanted it out of my face and I just watched this tutorial the night before, so I thought, perfect for a Wednesday. You can't tell, but it's a loose half braid and then you twist it, super simple but looks put together.

Thursday, I just did some loose braids and tied it in the back. For this style, before I curled my hair I used the KMS Tame Frizz Taming Creme* when I curled my hair the night before and then used a little  Bed Head Rockin Gel Pomade* before I braided. I think they turned out way less frizzy.

Also the day I matched my Mama.

Friday I had the day off so I had some time to put together a fun Valentine's look for you guys! I got this skirt at White House Black Market back at the beginning of January, and it was love at first site! They had two left and one of them was my size (sorry they are sold out online, but they might have some in store)! And the cute shirt (still available*), was hanging right above it, begging for me to take it home too.

Want to know the best part of the skirt? It has pockets! Anything with pockets is a win in my book!

I had some fun taking these pictures, since I knew it would be a Valentine's outfit...I think it would be fun too with a cute pair of bright pink or red heels too.

I guess you want to see my hair too huh? I got this style from Annie from Annies Forget Me Knots. Gorgeous right? And super easy...Just a little time consuming, fishtail braids are like that though. I still had the curls from the day before, so I added a little of the KMS Gel Wax* some more of the Bed Head Rockin Gel Pomade* before braiding.

Saturday, fresh hair and I did these braids. I used the Bed Head Shampoo*and Conditioner* before I went to bed. When I woke up I used the Control Freak* and then used a little Bed Head Rockin Gel Pomade* I really do think the extra product is working! I'll keep letting you know what I use. Mr. says this is his favorite that I've done since I started. He thinks they look really sweet. 

Next time I'll have better awareness of where I am placing the braids, so they won't be so close together and lopsided...I just didn't have time to fix it.

Oh and for know who you are...haha!

Sunday, Super Bowl, I wanted to try to do some loose braids and then criss cross them to make it like a half halo braid.  I think this would work better with curled hair so that the tails of the braid aren't so obvious. I used a little Pomade with these, but had the same products from the day before.

Yesterday to work I wanted to try this waterfall braid. I have been trying to do this for a while and I finally found a tutorial that made sense. I think it's because I wasn't mirror imaging her so it was easier to visualize what I was supposed to do?

I think this one looks so cool.

And I thought I would show you what it looked like, this was probably the third try. Yep I'm in the bathroom at work trying to fix it, haha! Shhhh, don't tell anyone. I tried it in the morning, but I really only give myself about 5 minutes to do anything with my hair, so I get one try, maybe didn't work out, but I really wanted to try it, I took a picture because I had no idea what it looked like...yep, not good! See it takes a lot of practice...and I've been trying this braid out for a while now with no luck, this is the first time it actually worked!

Happy Valentine's Day! Any special plans for V-day?
