A Summertime Favorite

For those of us who enjoy big hair, this one is for you!  It's perfect with a little summer dress and some strappy sandals for cruising the beach...or the city.  I don't really like hair on my neck, but sometimes ponytails look ridiculous on me, so this was my solution- a half up, half braided mixture, with (of course) a hair accessory to top it off!  Try it out:
It's actually pretty simple and will only take about 5 minutes
Here's what you will need:
(A teasing comb, a couple bobby pins, a hair tie, and a delicate accessory)

Okay, so it looks a little like I rolled out of bed, but that's kind of what happens when you tease it-ha.  Divide the top half of your hair into three sections ( top, left, right) and take the teasing comb to each section, teasing the underside of the hair.  Spray a little hair spray to hold the tease in place.
To make the pouf, take side sections of the hair you teased, and bring them around to the back.  Hold tightly, and push the hair up toward the crown.  This should make the bump, including the top of the hair and secure with the bobby pins.  Bring the remainder of your hair to one side and make a braid.  Finish off with a hair tie and add the accessory to cover the bobby pins...or wherever you want!  Voila!
Now put on that summer dress and hit the town!
