Hair Carnival: Breast Cancer Awareness...



Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the bloggers participating in the Hair Carnival decided we would go with this cause since it is sooooo important. For Des and I, we decided to do two styles, both are fairly simple but look totally different.

The first style we used an actual BCA scarf that we found at Target and incorporated it into her hairstyle. For this style we did an upside down french braid up to a high ponytail worn on her right side. We tied the scarf into a big bow and she wore her curls out. She loved it and received numerous compliments on the style.





For the second style we attempted to put the actual Breast Cancer Ribbon Logo into her hairstyle. I had a difficult time getting the ribbon to stay in place while I did a flat twist but after a couple of attempts I decided to be happy with what we had. Des was a champ through it. For the rest of her hair we decide to braid her hair with ribbon. The ribbon is actually wrapped around the hair so you don't actually see the hair. I saw something very similar on You Can Do It Too's blog post, she called it a Mummy Braid.  We did a very elongated flat braid across the front of her hair as well.






We had a blast doing this. Hope you enjoyed our styles. Until the next time... Stay Blessed.
