Twisted Mermaid Braid Tutorial
Twisted Mermaid Braid Tutorial || ADOS || YouTube Video || long, thick, brunette, bridal, mermaid braid hair style

It's friday! YAYYYY!!! And I'm so excited to share this hair tutorial I did on my beautiful BFF Olivia! We're both posting collaborative videos today, so make sure to go check out her YouTube channel and watch our No Mirror Makeup Challenge! It was so much fun, you'll definitely want to check it out to see how we did. 

I had a twisted mermaid braid style in mind as soon as Livvy and I talked about doing videos together. I've never worked with such long, luscious, and thick hair before. It was a dream come true! It turned out even more gorgeous than I originally imagined. I improvised as I was styling, and still would do things a little differently if I were to do it over again. Still, not bad for a style i've never tried before! This was my first time videoing a tutorial on someone else's head so I step in front of the camera a few times, sorry in advance! I hope you still enjoy this video! I had so much fun! Make sure to like & subscribe to my channel so you never miss a video in the future! :) 

I used Evolvh Polishing Balm to help with frizz and flyaways, meta grip bob pins, and small elastics to secure the hair in place. I also finished with a generous spray of Aussie hairspray across the whole style. 

I mean...can you believe that is all her natural hair???? GIVE ME ALL THE MERMAID BRAIDS!!! What styles do you want me to do tutorials on?? Leave a suggestion in the comments below!

Goodbye, brass!
From Brassy to Ashy || Styled by Cheree || A Dash of Salter

Dear brassy hair,

The time has come that we part ways. I'm not saying this to hurt you, I just don't want to see you anymore. I want to start seeing someone else, and that someone is actually not a someone. It's ashy hair I want. Ash tones are so much easier on the eyes! You understand, right? I'll always remember the good times we shared, and we'll both be happier if we move on.

Sincerely, Cheree

I recently found a YouTube video about using box dye as an affordable way to tone our hair and I thought I'd give it a try because, as previously expressed, I was ready to break up with the brass.  I really wanted to even out my roots and base a little more and tone my highlights in a darker ash blonde to give my ombré a more natural look. I was extremely nervous, and even more happy with the finished result! Not to mention, the after color conditioner makes my hair feel softer than a fluffy kitten. 

I used a light ash brown on my root to about 3 inches down, and a dark ash blonde on my ends to mid shaft. I did the darker color first waited the recommended amount of time, rinsed, conditioned and rinsed again. I dried my hair almost completely with my blow drier and then started adding the blonde color to my ends and then slowly worked my way up, allowing my ends the longest amount of processing time. I left it in for half of the recommended time, rinsed, conditioned, and rinsed again.  Then I styled it like normal and this was the result. 

What at do you think?! Was I right to breakup with brassy for ashy?
