  4. carry underwood has a gorgeous updo, with waves and a back comb can you do a tutorial with a similar look adding a braided headband, i cant quite achieve it<3 thankyou

  5. oh god. i was looking for hairstyles for prom, and i didn't think i'd find any updos that i like and would be able to do myself. after watching some of your videos, i can't decide which one i want to do. i love them all):

  6. youkinda look like lindsay lohan when at 16…

  7. I appreciate that you include the FAQ. Do you have a particular brand of bobby pins you like that are really strong and durable?

  8. You are immensely talented and patient!Beautiful!:))

  9. i wonder how many bobby pins you buy

  10. I love this, looks beautiful! You make me miss my long hair…. <3

  11. I used this video as inspiration for my hair yesterday. I had surgery and needed a way to keep it out of my face but would still look cute once it got a little messy after they put me to sleep. I got tons of compliments! I didn't use the bobby pins, instead I just made a messy bun with a hair tie (I have a ton of hair) so it worked out perfect. Thanks!

  12. Really really pretty hairdo! 🙂

  13. love it!!!! 🙂 soo going to try this hairstyle!!:)

  14. PLEASE DO A TWILIGHT HAIR SERIES!!! Like the pretty hairstyles from all 4 movies!!!! 😀

  15. i love your skip the intro links, i wish more people were smart enough to do that 😛

  16. This tutorial is a lifesaver! I had absolutely no idea what to do with my hair for a formal, and I had to work with my natural hair, which is curly and voluminous, so I was freaking out. Then I decided to give this ago, and It looked so good, and took me only about 10 minutes. Thank you so so much for all your amazing tutorials! xx

  17. Please please do bella swans wedding hair! Thank you xx

  18. what a beautiful top! love your style <3

  19. what brand of hot rollers you use? Conair or babyliss? what do you recommend?

  20. your 100th video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Lovely!! Think I'll do the loops tight at each side 🙂 love how that looks!

  22. Gosh…I love watching your hair tutorials…!

  23. that look is gorgeous!!!! I was looking at it though, and almost cried in sadness because i noticed it includes french braids, and i can't french braid to save my life T___T

  24. I think this is my favorite hairstyle you have done….=D

  25. u have tutorials that look exactly alike maybe just a tiny tiny bit different

  26. when I do my hair like that.. usually it looks beautiful AT FIRST. I put lots of bobby pins ans hair spray in it BUTl: as soon as I start moving around and don't just sit in front of the mirror everything starts falling apart 🙁 how long does your hair actually look like that? My hair is exactly like yours, long and very straight. boohoo PS love your tutorials! greetings from Berlin

  27. I have chinese cut bangs, should I braid them back or leave them down?

  28. Please do Bella's breaking dawn wedding hairstyle!

  29. It's my sisters birthday today and I did this hair on her.

  30. @1LeiaPrincess I never find that a bad thing… I have dark brown red hair, whatever that color is and the black ones always show in my hair, but I really don't care that much 🙂 You just make a beautiful do and no one will look at the pins 🙂

  31. @ivanagocanin Yes, i know which ones you mean , these are the ones i use already, but still if i put too many of them they do show! If i'm very determined and i have the time i can struggle and hide them, but it's tricky to do on yourself! Thank you for your answer honey! 🙂

  32. hey 🙂
    i was just wondering..what do you do?
    is being a hair stylist your job or do you do something else?

  33. Very pretty! I wish I had your skills 🙂

  34. i ALWAYS wanted to know how to do Lily's updos =D
    thank you so much

  35. @1LeiaPrincess Hey maybe you can try using those bobby-pins that are in a sort of golden, dark golden color. They aren't that noticeable on blond hair…
