Messy Bun
This Brilliant Hair Hack Is Perfect For 3rd Day Hair

At least once a week, someone on Instagram sees my this hairstyle and asks me to recreate it for them. While, I’m happy to do so, I always feel so silly because there is literally nothing involved in it. After sending about 9 direct messages videos, literally sitting at my desk to followers, I decided to finally just record a quick video for you guys to be able to reference and watch at your leisure…

Simple Messy Braided Updo With TRESemmé

However, I understand that finding new places to shop can be tricky so I wanted to share some of my favorite spots with you guys and detail a few pieces I’ve gotten from them, what shipping and returns are like, etc. Here we go…
