Ever since the Hippie Halo, Ive been promising another video with Emi Jay and here it finally is! In this video, youll see all the ways my beaded bestie (Karrie) and I try out Emi Jays multi-strand beaded headband, and a pretty little braid tutorial towards the end that I came up with just for the video.

Watch the video below, and please enjoy! This one might just be my favorite!

This tutorial sure has been a long time coming! Im quite proud of the video, and working with this crew has been a dream! Im so excited for you all to see it.

Please enjoy!

Note: This look is best achieved with an Emi Jay headband. Ive tried it with a number of other headbands and the results are just not the same (the honest truth!). I created the Hippie Halo in my bathroom mirror after opening up my first pack of Emi Jay headbandsit seems like only yesterday. Their products are great and Ive enjoyed working with the company so much. We have another video currently being edited that I think youll love!

Go here to scope out all the great products at Emi Jay. And as always, send in your Hippie Halo photos!

Ive been wearing my gray EmiJay headband like crazy. Maybe you remember it from my hair sprucing fail? Anyway, this headband is so comfortable and I see myself wearing it all summer. This skirt too. I wish I had a full body. I got it in Paris last summer at a vintage store. It had some kind of crazy apron sewn onto the front, but I seam-ripped that sucker out of there, sewed it back up and never looked back. Even though I do wonder if this was some kind of work uniform or something back in the day.

Back to the headband, I love it and thats all there is to it. I took this snap before heading out to brunch with a friend over the weekend because I was just so into it.

I wasnt able to find it on the website, but here is a link just in case you have better luck!

Have you guys heard of Emi-Jay?
Its a company that makes hair ties, bows and headbands. Here is Dakota Fanning wearing one of the bows.

My friend works for the company, and sent me a little bit of everything from their shop. I have the bow Dakota is wearing and I wear it constantly. I wish I had some good pictures! Actually look at that, Im wearing it here and here.

And here!

And here!

I thought it would take a few tries to decide if I liked Emi-Jay, but as soon as I put up my hair in that first pony tail, I loved them! The bands are soft and really stretchy, so they arent too tight or damaging and they arent ever tangley when I take down my buns or ponies.

Here are what the regular hair ties look like

So I had a few of my friends try them too and they all like them. They hold a great pony tail for every hair type (seriously, all you super thick haired girls!). I have been really excited to show them to you  because I know youll love them too.

Check them out and make sure you let me know what you think!

*My friend sent over these products not expecting me to review them, but Ive been extremely pleased with the products and wanted to share them. I am open to product reviews though, so if you have a product you want me to try out, email me here hello@hdofblog.com
