The DIY I picked in Goa

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I love my holidays just as much as the other person and to bring back something for my blog in terms of a DIY or a trend or just an over load of information on travel and fashion gives me an immense satisfaction! Yes, I take it seriously =)
I can't think of many people who wouldn't rave about the sand and fun under the sun, business of Goa! And if such a holiday comes right in the middle of my last semester in Law school which is dreary like no other, it couldn't be more welcome. At this particular beach, I picked a very popular beachy trend that would come in handy for all those who don't wanna go all the way to Goa to get these cute woolen braids in their hair!
Its as simple as this and I hope the pictures would guide you along:
Pick the 3-4 colorful woolen strands of your choice and pick a thin section of your hair wherever you would like to place the braid. Start with putting a knot with the threads on that section at the top. Follow that by placing them side by side, leaving no space, around the section of your hair, wrapping it as you go.
When you're nearing the bottom, place another tie and start making a multiple fork braid with the section of the hair and the woolen strands. Fasten two knots at the bottom and snip of the extra. You're good to go =)

What did you guys think? Would you try the DIY? Like the beachy outfit?
Would love your feedback.

XOXO

  4. Oh how that reminds me of younger days! (Gasp! now I feel old) but yes, I brought back multicoloured braids from every trip to goa. Always got them done from the lovely gypsy ladies on the last shack at anjuna. And I hated taking them off! (The last time, I had to cut my hair, braids et all bcoz it had been left like that for so long!)
    It looks lovely on you, as does the outfit!
    Happy Holidaying!

  12. I agree with u. holiday packages to Goa are very popular, Goa Carnival held in February every year is an equally popular draw. The street carnival is marked by parades, colorful floats, street dancers and of course, lots of fun and frolic! No matter what the season, Goa never goes out of style.
