Micro Braids on Lace wigs

How often do we see micro braids on lace wigs?

Almost never. That is why, Harlem 125, a maker of lace wigs, has brought out a new product- the prebraided lace wigs.

The advantages of these micro braided lace wigs is that they look amazingly natural and create an impression that you are showcasing your own hair. Just take a look at the pictures!
The styles are called LD700 and LD701 by Harlem 125. They are lace front wigs with baby hair around the hair line and they are made of heat resistant fiber, Futura.

FOTD: Holiday Teal Ombre Glitter Eye Liner & OCC Queen Lip Tar

I'd been thinking of 'ombre eyeliner' as a way to sneak in color with out it being so in your face. I drew on a thin line of Blackheart Teal Death Glitter Liner fading in to black to match my tealed hair. Potential Holiday eye? It's got the greens and glitttah but doesn't scream hi! i'm wearing Christmas on my face. On the lips: OCC Lip Tar in Queen . This color I'm not feelin, it's like Grandma lipstick on acid.The key to this look is keeping the black and white lines thin, which isn't always easy, just finding a white eyeliner that works is half the battle. I like a liquid (try Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner in Snow or LimeCrime Lunar Sea), it's easier to get precise lines whereas a pencil can dull out.

For the eyeshadow's I used the full top row of the Sleek Bad Girl Palette , it's the perfect mix of gunmetal's, noir, and has a beautiful champagne cream highlight. I wish they sold Sleek here! I'm crazy over these palette's. Complete product listing after the cut and a review on how I got these p!nk roots coming soon :)

Wedding Trends - Braided Hairstyles -

{Wedding Trends} : Braided Hairstyles

Braids are back and hitting the bridal scene in a big way! Whether it is for the bride or bridesmaids, 
braids are the trendy new way to style hair for the big day.  Until recently, wearing a braided hairstyle 
was just for the bohemian bride. We have fashion designers to thank for the rise of wedding braids. 
Since fashion icons like Valentino and Monique Lhuillier incorporated soft glamorous braided up-dos
into their bridal runways, braids have been embraced by classic and modern brides alike! Whether 
one in the front, swept across, or an entire halo, I believe braids always add a romantic look 
to any wedding hair style. Here a round up of my faves!
