I made a very simple and basic daenggi from a satin ribbon.

Todays hairstyle 03/03-19 Cable braid


Todays hairstyle 12/02-19 Braids (and lots of u-pins)

It's four braids.
Two with the "front hair" that's been wrapped around the top of my head.
And two in the back. I made a cinnabun with one braid and then continued to wrap the other one around it.
And in the end, I decided to put in some ornaments to make it more interesting.

Another snood

You can read about it on my instagram, but I had eye laser surgery last week. Having bad eyesight (it improves every day now!), I did stuff that required less eyesight. And one of those things where to finish another snood!
Now I want to buy more yarn to make another one. I'd really like to make a red one!

What I use to comb and brush my hair

First I use a wide toothed wooden comb and my fingers to detangle my hair.
Then I follow up with my boar bristle brush. Sometimes I also use the top one to spread oil or sebum in my hair, or the middle one to smoothen my hair a bit extra.
just as the bottom comb in the first picture.
The brush in the middle I got with a comb (that I use to clean my brushes now), when I was baptised or something like that. I found it at my fathers attic one and a half year ago, and decided to use it again. I don't know what the bristles are made of.
The top one I got many years ago for brushing our foal (it was my first horse brush), that later became my horse. When I could no longer keep my horses I decided to keep the brush as it was nostalgic to me. I cleaned it and after I year or so, I realized that I could use it for my own hair. I don't know what the bristles are made of.
I still miss my horse...
It was also in the stable that I learned most of what I know about braiding. My horse had a lace braid in the picture (and a french braid in his tail).

"Christmasy"/"Wintery" hairstyles 1

I'm not a Christmas or a winter person, but this year I'll try to do a few hairstyles that's inspired by Christmas and winter.
First up are these taped milkmaid braids, made from rope braids.
I thought that this ribbon had a bit of "Christmas feeling" and the hairstyle does remind me a little of a Christmas wreath.

I mae my first snood!

I found a good tutorial, so it was actually quite easy! And fun!
It's very comfortable.
I will make more!
