Lori Bryant β€’ Hair Tutorials  Wife & homeschooling mom of 4. Lover of life, coffee & braids. πŸŽ₯ YouTuber.

Gracie requested a special style today for her watch week at dance today. We went for a corset braided heart. I have a tutorial for this on the blog and on my YouTube - Hair by Lori πŸ’•

Double Dutch braids into little flowers on Gracie today. Love this on her, it’s perfect for her short hair 🌺

Hey, hey!! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Long time no see! 5 strand braid with elastic design on each side for Gracie today. πŸ’•

Hey instafriends!! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ I got the sweetest email last night from a follower here named Sarah. She noticed I hadn't been on IG in awhile and was wondering if everything was ok. She let me know that I've been in her thoughts and prayers. I am so touched! I have wondered at times if anyone noticed or cared that I hadn't been on here. It seems that maybe there are some of you who care, and that makes me feel blessed and loved! 😊❀️. β€’

If you are one of the people who noticed I'd been off this insta, thank you for noticing! I thought I'd give you a little update on what I've been up to. Back in January, I worked hard to lose 20 lbs. and really learned a lot about my body. I fell in love with fitness and nutrition and have been focusing a lot of time and effort on that... not in an effort to be skinny, but because I love how strong and energetic I am now! I just feel so good and healthy, it's been easy to switch from devoting time to this Insta account and blogging to devoting time to staying active and cooking healthy meals. I've even gotten certified to teach some fitness classes! It's so much fun! With all of this newfound energy, I've been able to do so much more with my 4 children. We've been spending a lot of time adventuring and experiencing things. We are blessed and loving life! β€’

So while I haven't been online here, I have been posting our adventures and my health & fitness journey on my other Instagram account @blessedlifeofmine. You are welcome to follow me there. And I'll try to pop in on this account more. I have missed you! ❀️❀️❀️

Double 4 strand ribbon headband braids on Hope for #30DaysNewBraids #30DNBDay8. Determined to catch up on the challenge today πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ˜…. Link in my bio for more info on the 30 day braiding challenge. Feel free to jump in and join us! ❀️

First style on Hope's short hair - 3 waterfall twists to keep the hair back and out of her face. I'm behind on #30DaysNewBraids but am determined to catch up! This for #30DNBDay7. You can find tutorials for this as well as all the other braids in the challenge by clicking the link in my bio. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

While I was standing with Hope as she got her hair done, I looked over at Gracie to see this!! She found the magazine all on her own, and sat contentedly flipping through it. It was too cute!! πŸ’œπŸ’‡πŸΌπŸ‘±πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Ok, how do I put that hair back on?! She looks too grown up 😭😭😭. I'm *mostly* kidding, she loves the cut {13 1/2 inches!!} and the hair is going to a great cause. We are donating it to @pantene's #beautifullengths program just like we did with Gracie's hair a couple of years ago. Check out my IG story to see our trip to get it cut and hear what Hope thinks of the cut. πŸ’‡πŸΌπŸ’œ

#flashbackfriday to September 2015 when we cut 3 year old Gracie's hair to donate to @pantene's #BeautifulLengths program and we challenged you all to donate #8or8 - eight or more inches of hair or $8+ dollars to their great program that makes wigs for cancer patients. I thought this was a very fitting #fbf as we just cut Hope's hair today to donate to the same program. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Fishtail braid accented with a microbraid on Hope today for #30DNBDay6 of #30DaysNewBraids. I'm thinking about filming a tutorial for this. Would you be interested in seeing it? Comment and let me know. πŸ‘πŸΌ or πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ πŸ€”. It's similar to @hair4myprincess's beautiful double stitched fishtail braid but I used a different technique for mine.

I have total #hairenvy over my 5 year old 😬😍😭 β€’
#30DNBDay5 Pull through braid with some little accent braids for a cute half up look on Gracie. I'm a day late on my own braiding challenge with this πŸ™ˆ but yesterday was non stop wonderful busyness and I just didn't manage any hair. #30DaysNewBraids πŸ’•

Woven 4 strand braids into a big 4 strand braid on Hope for #30DNBDay4 of #30DaysNewBraids. You can find tutorials for the 4 strand braid and all the rest of the braids in the challenge by clicking the link in my bio. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to participate and try new braids, so for each day of the challenge I have put together a blog post with multiple tutorials to teach you the basic technique, how to do it on yourself, and different styles using the technique. Step outside your comfort zone and try some new braids out this month! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
