Hair Carnival: Breast Cancer Awareness -- Ribbon Styles

Pin It
Hey all!

So, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a few of my amazing blogger friends and I decided to get together and do some awesome hairstyles to show our support for the cause!!! THINK PINK, right?!!? So, that's what we are doing!!!

Breast Cancer can affect EVERYONE... Men and Women alike.  One of the sites that can give you more information on this serious disease is The Breast Cancer Site!  Check it out and make sure that you are taking care of yourself the best way you can!!

NOW...

I decided to try my hand at the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon on BB's and CC's hair to show my support for such an amazing cause.

First up: BB!!










Second up: CC!!!












This cause is extremely important to me, having lost many people in my family to this terrible disease... A feel a day keeps the doctor a way... Make sure to give yourselves REGULAR breast exams (YES MEN, YOU TOO... CHEST EXAMS), and get your yearly physicals as well!!





I hope you enjoyed this blog post folks!! I enjoyed doing these styles for you all!! :)

Comments: LEAVE THEM, FOLKS!! I LOVE THEM!

Thanks for the love!

Keep Watching,

Char~

Shautel said...

OMG: How beautiful is this...I would love to do this style on my girls..how did you do those?

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Shauntel * Thank you so much!!! I just parted it in a ribbon shape, and braided... I kinda just hoped for the best and it worked out. To put the beads within the ribbon shape, I simply braided, slipped them on, and then continued braiding. I hope that helps.
