Many of you know that I started as a hairblogger before becoming a YouTuber. As such, I am very familiar with popular beauty bloggers and those to make a splash on Pinterest.

Abby Smith, from TwistMePretty, is one of those bloggers I had admired her styles for a long time, and I finally met her this past Feb during a conference I was speaking at in Utah!

I thought it would be fun to invite her to TX and introduce her to you all. For today’s hairstyle, we used her Alternative Braid {that went viral on Pinterest} as the inspiration with Brooklyn as our model.

Over on Abby’s channel, you can find her DIY version of this braid:
