Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

I can't believe how popular Double Dutch braids have become again lately.  I remember my mother braiding my hair like this every day before school when I was in elementary school!  

These braids are great if you only have a few minutes to pull together a polished look and they are also perfect if you need to take a break from heat styling your hair or extensions.  I also love them for a quick but cute gym hair style.  They keep my hair totally out of my face the whole workout!

We added extensions to our braids to make them extra thick, but you can do them with just your natural hair as well!

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial!

Wedding Hair Tutorial // Sneak Peak of Jade Roper's Wedding Hair

Wedding Hair Tutorial // Sneak Peak of Jade Roper's Wedding Hair

This Sunday, ABC is going to be doing a look back at it's 20 seasons of The Bachelor.  I only started one season ago, when our girlgetglamorousHAIR gal Jade Roper was on the show. 

I was immediately hooked on this show and now even started doing weekly watching parties.  Gotta say, those TV producers know what they are doing, they've turned me into a Bachelor addict!

I've done Jade's makeup a few times for various appearances and she became one of our first gals to love girlgetglamorousHAIR.  Jade (and Carly - in shade 613) wore her 16" set for her appearance on ABC's After Paradise and looked stunning.

How we created Jade's Side-Swept Curls for After Paradise:

1.  We prepped both Jade's natural hair and the extensions (16" length) with a heat protect spray.

2.  We created a deep side part and clipped the hair up in layers so we could work on one small section at a time.

3.  Curled the natural hair first.  We changed the direction that we curled each piece in, to create a more voluminous style and more natural looking curls. All the hair in front was curled away from her face.  We also used two different size curling irons, a 1" and 1.25" iron.

4.  Then we curled Jade's extensions using the same technique, alternating the direction the curls went in.

5.  We clipped the extensions in and blended the natural and extension hair. {tutorial}

6.  We sprayed a texture spray throughout to create even more volume.

7.  We parted Jade's hair with the thin side of a teasing comb and back combed the top. 

8.  We added a tiny mist of hair spray to smooth down fly aways for on camera (the texture spray already has medium hold) and used a pea size amount of oil on her ends and then used what was left on our hands to smooth out the top.

What's In The Box: A girlgetglamorousHAIR Unboxing

What's In The Box: A girlgetglamorousHAIR Unboxing

I honestly don't know why unboxing are so much fun, but they are!  I love a good unboxing.  I wanted to show you everything that comes in your girlgetglamorousHAIR box, so here we go...

1.  Tester piece:  the bottom compartment of your box has a 3.3" tester piece from your full set, so that you can see the color and length against your own hair. You can hold the piece up against the bottom of your hair to make sure the color is a perfect match!  Just make sure to leave it attached to the cardboard in case you want to do an exchange.  Once you've decided it's a match, you can add to the full set, which is located in the main compartment. 

2:  Full set:  The full set is in the top compartment, with a security seal.  Both the 16" and 18" length sets contain 9 wefts of hair.  Each set contains 1 weft that is 7" wide, with four clips, 1 weft that is 5" wide with three clips, 5 wefts that are 3.3" wide with two clips, and 2 wefts that are 1" wide with one clip.

3.  Extra clips:  As clips take a lot of wear and tear, being bent back and forth as they are clipped in and taken out, they tend to be the first thing that can wear out on every set of hair extensions.  So all girlgetglamorousHAIR extensions include two extra clips in the box.  Clips are super easy to sew back on and this will help extend the life of your extensions!

4: Storage box:  I designed every detail of the signature coral box myself and I'm proud to say that each box is made to last!  The boxes are designed with heavy duty materials to be kept as keepsake storage boxes.  You know those bobby pins and hair ties that you can never seem to hold onto? They can go in the bottom compartment that the tester weft came in.  The top compartment can hold a variety of combs, headbands, and hair accessories.  The divider flap folds down for extended room for brushes with longer handles.  I wanted you to be able to keep all your hair accessories in one place. The hair extensions can also be stored in the box if they are straight.  However, if they are curled, I highly recommend storing them in the girlgetglamorousHAIR storage bag (coming soon), so they won't have to be restyled.  (Heat damage is the main reason you'll have to replace your extensions.)  

5.  Instructions:  Instructions on where to clip in each weft on your head.  These can be taken out of the box and left on your bathroom counter or put into your storage bag for a quick reminder when you want to wear your extensions.  I love a good YouTube instructional video, but sometimes you just need a fast reminder!  This was also printed on heavier weight cardstock, so you can hold onto it for as long as you need.
