Notice a trend in these? ;) I love wrapping hair around the pony tail when I don't have much time! It takes just a few seconds and gives the simplest hairstyle an added touch. I also love to add a couple hair extension wefts to my hair to make a bun or braid look thicker. Then quickly pull apart my braids to make them look big and messy and that instantly transforms braids. Hope you all are having a good day! If anyone knows of a good colorist in Honolulu or North Shore let me know in the comments! My hair needs HELP my roots are getting bad! Love you all. Photos by Stephanie Sunderland

Love this 3 easy hair styles, can wait to try them.
I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT EXTENSION OPTIONS IF YOUR HAIR IS CURLY? DON’T SEE MANY OPTIONS FOR CURLS BUT WOULD LOVE TO ADD FUN AND LENGTH TO MY HAIR.
Hi I’m trying to order a set of hair extensions, and when I try to add them to my cart, I get a message that says, “Required parameter missing or invalid: id”. I’m not sure what it’s asking of me. Can you please help. I’d love to place an order.
Can you share some tips on having extensions while living in a tropical climate, now that you are in Hawaii. For example, how you wear them to the beach, and care for them there, sand, etc. Do you wear them in the water? Would love your tips! I am in Hawaii too 🙂
I would like this information also!
The two braided options are my favorite!
Sparkles and Shoes
Love all of these styles! So pretty!
So pretty! I love the extra polish wrapping around the hairtie adds! I can just never get mine to stay, haha.
Definitely loving the half-up braid! Especially that it’s a little undone! I love those types because I don’t have to fuss with it throughout the day!
Love them all! <3
I do that too, it always neatens up a rushed hairstyle! I love these definitely will be trying a few this holidays while I’m just lazing around a bit! Always love your hair, it always looks amazing!
Go to either Marsha Nadalin Salon in Kahala Mall and see the owner Marsha, or Paul Brown Salon (few locations, ask for Paul the owner). Tell them I sent you…Sara, the only Jewish girl on the island who covers her hair with a wig;)
Hi Amber! I adore all of these and all of your other hair styles too!
Could you show us how to do them with the wefts? Some of us are clueless but love our BFB hair!
Love the hair styles!! Quick and easy but so pretty!!
The hair cut store in Laie
Always love your hairstyle ideas!
Check out Khiet Luu in Honolulu for color – he’s phenomenal. @khietluu on IG
Just so impressed you can do those cool hairstyles to yourself! I am still struggling at doing plaits to my daughter’s fine hair…agghhh! Need some private tutoring with you my darling!!! And how I would love for you to try to do something with MY hair. Need to fly you over to London sometimes;) Love your beautiful braids! Julie x
Gorgeous. Definitely trying these out this week!
The second one is my fav! Will have to give it a whirl 😉

Love these simple styles! But yes, I agree with some others here, my hair never stays wrapped around the ponytail, it always comes loose. Please share the secret tricks you use to get it to stay! 🙂
So cute! I love the half up braid!
Love the second one so much! That’s not something I would have ever thought of doing but it looks so good!
I love these simple hairstyles. They are perfect for when you’re in a rush. I need to invest in some hair extensions, though, since my hair is not yet long enough to pull these off. Thanks for sharing!
Love all these looks. Your hair is amazing and so funtional!
those hairstyles are super cute!!! <3
I love that you took the simplest hairstyles and added the cutest touch by wrapping the hair around the hairtie to show a more put-together look 🙂 SO CUTE! PS- your staycation in Hawaii looks absolutely amazing!!!
YES to using a weft of extensions for hairstyles like these! Having a little hair to wrap around always makes for an adorable put-together look. Love your hair posts always!
Ugh! Your hair always looks flawless. I’ve never been good at doing my hair, but I’ll have to try these out! XO
love these styles! so easy to do and so cute.
thanks for sharing!
I’ve been dying to try your hair extensions, but my natural hair only touches my shoulders. Would the wefts still naturally blend in, or are they more for those looking to add body?! As always your hair and photos are gorgeous! xoxo
So cute! I love the looks but my hair is nowhere near long / thick enough for any of them. It’s days like this that make me miss my long hair.
Girl I love these looks! I bought your hair extensions and I LOVE THEM!!! the only problem I have is I have extremely thin hair. Do you have any tips on hiding the extensions? I’d love to try these looks with the extensions in <3
Lovely and easy styles.
I love them all! Super cute, natural, & they’re all sort of “old school” braids …love it!!
Love all of these hair styles! You have such a way with hair!!
Love all these looks! Can’t wait to try them! 🙂
Gorgeous hair, and love these hair styles!
Go to J salon! Also can you elaborate how you pin the hair you put around the pony?
Yes, I need help! This is what I always have trouble making look right!
That new year new hair ad is oh so sooo cute!!! Looking good, you are beautiful girl!!
Love these! They definitely give the braids a more modern, clean look. I don’t have advise for hair colorists in Hawaii, but I think you should consider trying a more natural looking balayage look for your island time. It’s super low maintenance and could be a great update to your look!
I was wondering what I might do to my hair today and then I check your blog and now I know what to do!!! Thanks for sharing!
LOVE the first braid, SO pretty!
Cathy, your Poor Little It Girl
I’ve started growing out my hair for your styles, no joke! Love all three! x
Such a great ideas and hairstyles, 2nd one being my fave which I need to “test” on myself. 🙂
Amber can you show how to secure the wrapped around hair? Mine always seems to get lose or fall out when I wrap a strand around my pony 🙁
I love them all! Definitely not going to cut my hair short now.
