fox13 live beauty on a budget segment: how to rock the not so basic braid

all you need to accomplish the not so basic braided looks:
cheap hair extensions from sally's to add volume and length, these cost anywhere from $2.29-$10
(these sassy ones were $2.29) , such an awesome deal.
i added the colored hair extension pieces to my side part corn row look for fun, they were only $2.29.
bobby pins, hair pins and some elastics.
easy and super budget friendly:)

how ahhhsome is this fall attire!!?:) i love every piece!!
i was able to once again pick out and wardrobe style my models
thanks to..
jmr fashion place, utah

gorgeous former miss utah usa 2011, jamilynn crandall, rockin the side cornrow twists with added color extensions.

braids were all over the runways during new york fashion week and with homecoming and other fun parties around the bend, i thought it would be fun to show you how to rock the not so basic braids. braids are fun and even if you have short hair you can still rock some of the hottest braid styles with the help of extensions. i'm not talking about the expensive ones either, i wanted to show how you could do it using the inexpensive brand, i'm all about budget friendly anything!

on mahh bodyy:
vintage wedding dress, necklace: h&m, tribal cuff and head piece: ebay

i shot this shoot a couple weeks ago and was so excited to see some of the finished pics. 
it was dreamed up by amy mcfarland as one of the scenes for her fall wedding themed shoot-outs.
this series was shot by the amazingly talented jessie alexis

amy asked that i incorporate my personal style into styling wardrobe and hair and makeup, this is my idea of a dreamy etherial boho bride:) <3
 i love modeling bridals because it let's me be creative with what i now would have done with my own bridals, when i got married. 
it's fun to play with different bridal looks and hopefully it inspires some of your own wedding looks.
