The 40 Hanger Closet--How to minimize your wardrobe for maximum style. Great post about drastically purging your closet so that all that is left are the things you really love.
Sailor's knot braid: Four strand braid. 1) Divide hair into 4 sections and number them 1-4 from the left. 2) #1 over #2, #3 over #4. 3) #4 over #1. 4) Re-assign the numbers so that the section on the leftmost (originally #2) becomes #1. 5) Repeat from step 2. This is really easy.
Hard water and hair. Ergh!
In a regular braid there are 3 strands. For this look, all you do is braid one of those strands beforehand and loosen it up with your fingers, then braid as usual. This creates extra texture + breaks up the mundane pattern of a regular braid.
