I am trying to get my act together and record more videos/write more posts (I am sorry I have been M.I.A I will do better!)
I do have a few things lined up so to get the ball rolling I made a video on how I use ribbons to accessorize. I already made a short post about the ribbons I bought (with the intention of using them on some dresses) but never explained how I “dress up” a simple chunky twist:
It really is a simple style and does not require a lot of explanation but I always “learn” by seeing and doing so I figured why not record a video right? As always I have the video up on my YouTube Channel and here on my Blog’s Video Page. I will write a quick post on the step by step process as well.
Do you use ribbons to accessorize? I would love to hear from you!
I bought a couple of ribbons the other day because I had initially wanted to use them to accessorize a few dresses. I then got to thinking what about using them for my hair!
To do the above:
I just put my hair in a big chunky two strand twist
Secured the twist with two hair bubbles; one at the base the other at the end
Took a strip of my ribbon and placed it over the base of my twist wrapping it around once
Then crisscrossed the ribbons down the length of my twist
The ends were tied over the hair bubble
I do not know about you but I really like how the ribbon can make a simple big twist look a little more “chic”. Well actually, I do not know if “chic” is really the right word but I feel that it makes a difference in the appearance of a twist. I have red, white and black ribbons two different sizes (I might have to go back and get the super thin ones as well!)
I also plan on using the bigger ribbon as a “head band” to cause some distraction from my forehead :D! So it will be “play with ribbon time” :).
