San Diego 2015

A few months ago I found out I was nominated for the BATD North American Highland Dance Scholarships, it is an event where highland dancers from across North America come to compete and are nominated based on their dance exam marks. You compete in three different “events”, a written paper where you answer questions based off of the highland dance theory textbook, a technical class that you are judged on and a solo which has to be 1.5 minutes or under and your costume has to be celtic themed. I was preparing for this event for months and when it came down to the day I was very nervous but in the end it was a great day and I walked away with 4th place in the technical class out of 67 other dancers.

Today I will be sharing the hair pictures I took on my trip, I did these hairstyles on the other girls from my studio as well as myself.

The first style I did was this fishtail updo on my friend, I didn’t really have a plan for this one, I just kind of went with it but was happy with the result!

Next was this dutch lace heart braid and I twisted pieces of hair and bobby pined them to cover the elastic.

 The next few pictures were taken at the roof top pool at our hotel.

For this hairstyles I was planning on continuing the dutch 5 strand braid all the way down the head but I decided to end it as a half up style with a dutch pancaked fishtail πŸ™‚

This girl and her sister (next hairstyle is her sister) are so crazy flexible, they always amaze me! For her hairstyles I decided to go with a pancaked dutch 5 strand braid

Here is the older sister, and for her hair I went with a zipper braid into a fishtail

For this girl I did a french 4 strand braid, I end it in a ponytail because her hair wasn’t long enough πŸ™‚ I just love her hair colour!

During the weekend we also had workshops, for the first day I did a dutch double headband with a corset braid (because it looks like highland dance shoes) into a rope twist headband!

For the last day of classes I did zig zag rope twists into a rope twist bun and then added a cute yellow lace bun

The day we were travelling back home I washed and blowed dried my hair and then it was so soft I couldn’t braid it and my hair needed a bit of a break πŸ˜‰ I also straightened it with my Vanity Planet Ceramic Flat Iron!
