Boho Side Braid ~ I'm a stylist...

I am sure you saw the outcome of the photo shoot that I was so privileged to be a part of about a month ago.  I had so much fun doing it the women involved are just incredible.  It is an excellent way to promote your business, specially if you are in the wedding industry.  So I thought was a better way to help my cousin get her little photography business off the ground than a styled shoot.

And I was the stylist!  I put together a vintage 1940's travel themed shoot.  I thought our model looked beautiful and it was a lot of fun to do.
I thought it was only appropriate to dress like a stylist.  So I got my torn jeans, my baggy shirt, my bangles and hippie tree necklace and I was ready to go.
And to really complete the look, I gave myself a boho side braid. 
{I am really totally kidding about dressing like a stylist. I didn't think that at all, I just happened to feel like a stylist with how I dressed and my hair and all, so I just went with it.}
By the way, my 4 year old son is my photographer.  Not bad, eh?  He might have a future here.  Anyone looking for a 7 foot photographer??  I guess he could get some different angles...
And again, I have a video!  Aren't you proud of me?  And again I apologize for quality! 


So how is my little challenge coming?  I haven't worn my hair in a regular pony tail since I started my 30x30!!  What kinds of hairstyles have you been trying?  I have some new ones up my sleeve that I saw on Pinterest today.  Can't wait to try it!

E-mail me a picture of your hair efforts!  I want to feature them!  Even if it is just a cell phone pic, who cares, it's evidence that you did it!! manouvellemode@gmail.com

Have a Happy Hair Day!!




By the way, here is a sneak peek at the shoot I styled. Isn't the makeup incredible? And I made her little veil thing and did her hair. So fun!

Hahaha, my 4 year old does my shots sometime, it's almost easier to be more natural with them than others isn't it? i love your look - especially love your necklace!!

I love your blog - stumbled across it in my internet trawling tonight! :) I am keen to do more with my hair than the usual bun or ponytail! WIll have to try this braid! :) Thanks

Ania said...

your outfit is cute and I love the hair. I will have to try it. I've always had short hair so I don't know what to do with long hair. I either wear it down, in a ponytail or buns. I'm getting so many cute ideas from fellow bloggers.

Megan said...

Michelle said...

I followed you over from Southern Lovely because I really want to figure out how to do this hairstyle for myself, then had fun linking over to the styled shoot. I'm a photographer and I'd LOVE someone to style all my shoots!
