Summer 2016 Instagram Recap

It’s been a long time since I have done a blog post, and I was starting to miss posting. I am going to start posting more regularly, so if there is anything you want to see more of let me know. 

Today’s post is a little recap of what I posted on Instagram over the summer. These are some of my favourite hairstyles I did on myself as well as my friends. I also want to add a big thank you to all of my friends that were great hair models this summer! 

At the beginning of July I got to meet up with some of my braiding friends! We did a few hairstyles but this is my favourite group shot! 

I love trying out different updos on myself, some times they work out and other times they don’t. This was one that worked out just as I imagined, making it my favourite updo I did this summer! 

I travelled a lot over the summer, so I had to save up pictures before I left. My friend’s and I would go to the beach and take 5-10 hair pictures. I love this fishtail tie back that I did on my friend. Over the summer break I had lots of time to play with my camera, I figured out that sunset was a great time to take pictures and made for very pretty backgrounds! This fishtail stacked combo was one that happened by mistake, but I really loved the outcome! I rarely ever do ponytail braids, but I love a edginess of this Viking braid! Side DIY combo braids is one that I loving playing around with, I love coming up with different combinations. With braiding the possibilities are endless, which is what makes it so fun. This is another example of a combo side braid ☺️ Another thing I did a lot over the summer, was work. My hair is to long to keep it down and it gets in my way. This pull-through braid was a great braid for a hot summer day at work. These are some of my friends who were always willing to be my hair models, this picture of them together is so cute! In August one of my dreams came true. Since I started Instagram I had always imagined hitting 100k, and that happened! It was so exciting and I still can’t believe it 🙊These braids above were some more I did on myself. Braiding your own hair isn’t always easy but the more I practice the more I am happy with the outcome! 
This updo was done on the last night of summer on the beach during sunset. It’s simple but I love the look of Dutch fishtails. 
I hope you enjoyed reading my Instagram recap. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram @hairstylesbygabby for more daily hair pictures!
