Random post - New Flexi-8, French braid and unnamed bun

Got the January Flexi of the Month (Starlight) to join my flexi-8 collection, and it reminds me a lot of Missy from Doctor Who, definitely something she would wear :D
Necessary Missy gif because she's awesome :D

 And action shot! I normally wear flexi-8's as low ponytail holders when I'm wearing three-strand braids:

And to explain the 'random' in the title, recent-ish hair pics! French braid:

And braided bun with paranda, the kind of bun that I get when I bun a braided ponytail into cinnamon bun and then part of it uncoils and this happens:

  1. Thank you for posting these photos! I wanted to see the "Starlight" Flexi in someone's pictures, because on the official ones on their website the entre looks so shiny and sparkling as if it has a backlit or something ;) I just couldn't fire out what it is. Glitter or reflextive foil... I still don't know but at least I can see it in a more realistic setting :) The official pics are always a bit unreal to me.

    1. Hi, you're welcome :)!

      I can take closer pics if you like :) How to describe the central part...It's not what I was expecting judging on the site pics, it's not just glitter or foil, it's kind of a 3-D glittery (acrylic?) material with ridges at the sides. It surprised me at first, but I really it :)

  2. French braid with paranda is really beautiful. And I assume allows you to wear it down without the "dangers" involved when it is loose.

    As always, thank you for educating and inspiring!

    1. Thanks :)! I often find it easier to wear my hair braided, yes :)
