EASY Long-Hair Style – Elegant Cascade

It is yet another hot day here in the Pacific Northwest.

OK, hot for us.  We moss-covered folks are just NOT used to 80 plus degree weather… we… glisten (as they say in the south)!!

Another day for yet another EASY way to get my waist-length, naturally curly hair off of my back.  Can you tell I like easy styles? Using Flexi-clips has allows me MUCH more variety in hair styles all while being so easy to do!  The Flexi-clips are also much more comfortable than barrettes or the ugly plastic claw.

This one comes with a tutorial!!  It is my very first  tutorial.  I would love your feedback on this.  You can see a pictorial only tutorial on my Pinterest Hair Styles board.  You can follow me on Pinterest for more of these kinds of pictorial tutorials.  I am planning other Pinterest only surprises… 🙂  You won’t want to miss them!

Elegant Cascade Hair Style

Items you will need: one barrette, one Flexi-clip (I used a medium Celtic Cross)

1. I start with my hair all down.  This is recently washed, scrunched up with some products to help keep down the frizzies, and it is mostly dry.

     2. Put your hair into a half-up, secured with a barrette.

3.  Gather your hair into a ponytail and hold in right hand.  Place your left hand against the back of your head with the pinkie just under the barrette.  Pull the ponytail up while sliding your hand along the pony until it is just above the barrette.

Fold the ponytail so there is a ‘bulb’ of hair about 2 inches in length(it can be longer or shorter) above the barrette.  You may have to adjust the size Flexi-clip you use so the folded ponytail won’t slip out.

4.  Remove your left hand from under the raised ponytail and hold onto the folded ‘bulb’ of hair just above the barrette.  While continuing to hold the folded ponytail, place the decorative part of the Flexi-clip onto the folded ponytail and slide the attached pin underneath and above the barrette.  Slide the pin into the Flexi-clip.

Have a great week and keep cool with your hair up!

So EASY To Style My Hair and with STYLE!

This is how I wore my hair today and yesterday.

It was so easy to put up.  The Flexi clip and U-Pins did not gouge my head in the least.  My hair didn’t feel heavy at all.  The best part was this stayed in firmly all day long both days!

I am wearing a coiled bun and used the X-Large  Enchanting Copper Rose Flexi with the Copper Rose U-Pins for accents.

I gathered my hair into a ponytail and then twisted it all tight.  The twisted hair I coiled into a bun, tucking the ends underneath it all.  The flexi-pin I placed on top of the bun.  I then slid the pin underneath the bun and into the other end of the clip.  The U-pins I placed with the “u” shape in the opposite angel from my head.  I inserted the u-pin ends into the edge of the bun, then tipped up the u-pin so the bend angle was now in alignment with my head shape and slid it in and under the bun, repeating with the second u-pin.  The U-pins don’t hold the bun but are for accents.

My hair is waste length, of a medium thickness, curly and cut with layers.  You can see a photo of my hair here.

Peter Carl Faberge’s 166th Birthday & NEW Lilla Rose Hair Sticks

Today, Google’s front page honors Peter Carl Faberge’s 166th birthday.

Alexander III started the tradition in 1885. Every year, he commissioned an egg from his court jeweler, Peter Carl Fabergé, as a gift to his wife, the Empress Maria Fyodorovna. After Alexander’s death, his son, Nicholas II continued the tradition, commissioning from the firm two eggs each year.

At Easter, Fabergé himself would present one egg to the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna, while his assistant would present the second to Alexandra Fyodorovna, Nicholas’s wife. In all, 56 of these masterpieces were produced between 1885 and 1917, however, only 10 of these have remained in Russia. Masters from the Fabergé firm worked on each Easter egg for nearly a year. Designers, goldsmiths and silversmiths, jewelers, stone carvers, enamelers and sculptors all took part in its preparation, from the initial sketches to the finishing touches. The final word, however, was always had by Fabergé, “a great, incomparable genius,” in the words of Maria Fyodorovna.

These astounding creations often included delicate mechanisms. They were equally remarkable for their unusual design, the extraordinary precision of their execution, their magnificent detail and the wonderful selection of the most precious materials. The subject and form of each imperial Easter egg were unique. Some celebrated intimate family themes, while others honored notable events in the life of the Russian state and the imperial family.

Karl Fabergé created his famous ceremonial eggs as symbols of life and resurrection for Imperial families in celebration of Orthodox Easter. These eggs belong to the most celebrated goldsmith works of modern times and contain surprises, which were not revealed to the Czar’s family until Easter. Even when being asked by the Czar, Fabergé did not divulge the secret and answered stereotypically: “Your Majesty will be satisfied.”

And today, Lilla Rose released a new set of Cloisonné Bead Hair Sticks that are reminiscent of Faberge eggs.So very pretty!!  I love using Hair Sticks and can’t wait to order a set of these!!

You can order on my web page here.
