Very cute and easy up-do: fling your hair forward and start french/dutch braiding your hair from the base up. Stop where you want to tie up your hair, and put your hair in a bun/ponytail/braid! Wish I could actually do this and it look good
Ombre is all the rage right now. I'm a huge fan of this brown-to-blonde look. I've tried the ombre myself and I must say, it's a fun way to try out a new style with not too much commitment. Don't love the blonde on the ends? Trim it off!
