Blohaute Beach Waves + Waterfall Braid

Yes, it's Friday again! I love that I feel like I just wrote a Friday post, because that means this week flew by. As you guys may have read yesterday, Brittani and I were lucky enough to have Amanda from Blohaute come to Brittani's and have us try her at home blow out and style service. It was amazing! Being able to have someone come to the comfort of your home and not have to worry about your hair making it from the salon to where ever your event is was such a worry lifted. Using all of the same products she had used on Brittani's hair (minus the flat iron) I had her try a waterfall braid on beach waved curled hair by using a 1" barrel curling iron. Check it out below!


In order for a great blow out, I took a shower right before she came over to Brittani's, this way she could work my hair however she needed for the style. 


Once dry, she heated up a 1" barrel curling rod and sectioned off my hair to start the curling process.


After a few minutes (she did it so fast with great results!) my hair was slowly becoming be achy waves. In order to achieve this type of wave, she wrapped my hair with some distance on the rod, so that they wouldn't become too tight.

For the water fall braid, Amanda started on one side, grabbing the front of my hair and pulling it back as she went along. She described it as weaving the hair in and out while letting a piece fall. At first I thought this hair style would be pretty hard to duplicate but after watching her do it, it is actually a great and easy style you could do on your own!




Once she reached the middle of my head on one side, she started on the other to bring two braids from each side together. (Some who style this look like to just keep going around after starting on one side, but Amanda recommended starting from two sides and meeting in the middle to keep consistency in the braid).


She then joined the two ends and secured with bobby pins.



With a few more touches of Fave4 texture takeover hair spray, the look was complete! The actual styling only took about 20 minutes tops, which is great if your looking for an amazing hair-do in a crunch. 


Big thanks again to Amanda for beautifying our hair and making us feel fab!
