Trend Report: Black and White

Chic by fashiongal96
This spring, the black and white combination is a huge trend. I would recommend wearing only black and white in your outfit, or just add one pop of color to your outfit. If you decide to wear only black and white, it gives this cool, minimalist effect. If you add a pop of color, add the color where you want to attract attention. Like, if you want to draw attention to your face, wear colorful earrings or a bright necklace. Or if you have a small waist, you could accent it with a belt (like in the outfit above). Do you like the black and white Spring 2013 trend? How would you wear this trend?

Easy Braided Bun Tutorial

Hey everybody! Just a couple of days ago, I did my hair in this cute bun hairstyle.

This look is super easy to re-create. I mean, if I can do it, you can too! Here is what you will need-
  • Headband (optional)
  • Bobby pins (NOT optional!;)
  • A cute hair bow elastic (optional)

Here is what you are going to do-
  1. Braid your whole head of hair into one big braid.(you might want to gather your hair into a ponytail and then braid the tail- it's up to you! I don't do that though.)
  2. Now you are going to wrap your braid into a bun and secure with bobby pins (see, the pins are SO not optional!;)
  3. Now it's time for accessories, to jazz up your bun! You can slide a cute elastic over your bun, to the base of the bun (like in the picture), you can put on a headband (I did, but I didn't get a picture. I just used the simple black one in the photo of the supplies.), or you can do both!
And that's it! My first time forming the bun on the day I did this, my bun was kinda lopsided. So I re-did it. It might take a couple of tries to get it straight, but you'll get it.:) Do you like doing your hair? If you have any fun tutorials, leave a comment below!
