So.. That title is a long one, and quite a tongue twister too! It's a 3 in 1 blog post today, and I am currently uploading the OOTD that you can see in the pictures below so I will be making a blog post linking it, if you would like to see. :)
|I only learnt how to do a fishtail braid yesterday, from Tanya Burr's video (or pix2woo on YouTube) which I will link here, and I have to admit, it is pretty difficult at first! I couldn't do it, I didn't understand where the strands of hair were meant to go but eventually, if you keep practising (I was practising most of the night!) you eventually get into a rhythm and your hands begin to know where to go. I think it is just such a nice change from the classic braid, where you section 3 pieces etc etc, it just has a completely different look to it, you can make it messy or keep it tight and I think it is a very elegant where to style your hair.|
I also got my haircut today, it doesn't actually look that different, all I got was my dead ends off my hair, I didn't get any of my layers cut back in because my hair honestly grows back at the speed of light, there is no point! However, I did get a lot off my fringe to make it flow better again, as before it would go curly at the ends which would make it harder to style, as if I straightened it it would stick up all over the place! I also asked to get my fringe thinned a lot, because as I said, my hair grows back very fast therefore my hair is very thick, and I don't want my hair to be heavy on my face as it will just annoy me.
On a side note, I will be changing shampoo and will be doing a blog post on why I am doing this, as the shampoo I am using is, well, basically awful and is kind of pointless in what it aims to achieve. Keep an eye out for that tomorrow!

So that is about it for my 3 in 1 blogpost today! I am currently watching the Paralympics and it has inspired me to do a video talking about it, was nearly in tears earlier and the opening ceremony hasn't even finished. All I can say is that the Paralympics are exceptionally inspirational to me. Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful day and I will talk to you very soon :)
