  1. I love this hairstyle so much! I always wear it to school and I get so many comments and people always tell me how much they love it! Thanks for your dedication and am always looking forward to new posts and videos! Xx

  2. Hi Amber,

    I love your hair, but who doesn’t? 🙂
    I’m naturally blonde, but I recently (for the past year) have been platinum… I’ve been bleaching it and now I’m soo over all the hassle and I want to go back to looking more natural. I really love your color, do you put lowlights in it, or how do you achieve that color? I look forward to your comment!!


  3. I randomly stumbled upon a half up hair do of yours on Pinterest, which led me here. I am in love! If I could please have your whole wardrobe and hair that would be lovely! I am looking forward to trying your hair tutorials and will continue to follow your posts. One question I do have, do you were false lashes?? Or, what brand mascara do you use? Your lashes always look amazing!

  4. Hi Amber, I absolutely love your blog and I love how easy most of your hair do’s our… finally something I can do with it looking right. (; You’re such an inspiration to me, I even decided to start doing a blog. It would mean a lot if you would check it out!

  6. i thought this was going to be super hard but i just love watching your tutorials because you are just too cute so i was watching this one yesterday and then thought what the heck and tried it! it was so easy, i have never even fishtailed before and i figured it out and it looked so good i must say! haha.

    i posted a pic to instagram and everyone loves it! i also then did it today and everyone at work is loving it too!

    i have been wanting to chop my hair but now i don’t know because i want to be able to try all your other braid tutorials haha.

  7. Where can we find the tangle teazer brush? I looked on ghd website and couldn’t seem to find it?? Thank you so much

  8. Amber, I LOVE all your braids, and your photos… Cutest things ever! 🙂 I hope you`ll do a Q & A soon cause there are soo many questions we`d all like to ask you 🙂 The one I`m thinking of most is – when did you first dye your hair?? And how did you keep it healthy after dying it?? Thank you!! :*

  9. Hey Amber!

    I am a new reader and can I just say that your blog is AMAZING?! I seriously just love it.

    Would you ever consider doing a make up tutorial or just like an everyday look? I’m looking to start a new make up routine and have no idea where to begin with all the products out there. Haha

    Anyways, I’m not sure if you read all of these, but I just wanted to stop by to say hi and thanks for sharing such an AWESOME blog!:)


  10. I love how creative you are when it comes to figuring out new hairstyles and how your site is always the first place I see so many different braids/hairstyles. I saw that Free People’s Blog picked it up from you and has already done a post on it but it just doesnt look as good… something about the way you do your hair is so unique, it’s impossible for anyone else to perfectly recreate the look. You’re fabulous!

  11. Loved this I am going to try it!!!! I hope it works my hair isn’t as long do you have any tips on getting your hair to grow longer??? Your fab btw!

  12. Love your hair tutorials! You have actually inspired me to give extensions a try, so I can throw my hair into braids for work (my hair is too thin to braid now). This January I am going for it. I was reading your FAQ section and saw the info you gave on hair coloring. Do you color your own hair too? If so, a tutorial on how you do it would be awesome

  13. I have thick and frizzy hair so it’s kinda hard to do these braids :/ do u have any tips to make it easier!that would be great


  14. What would you recommend to do to get a good color match (extensions) for those who have ombré hair?

  15. Amber – Can you do a tutorial on hair products, please? I saw on IG you just went to London for the VS Show. Would you suggest their hair products, Tresemme (I saw you have some videos related to their brand), or another brand? I hate spending money on hair products and if when I get home, they aren’t helpful. It feels like a waste of money then. Any thoughts on your fav hair products would be welcomed.

    All the best,

  16. Hi Amber!

    Lovely photos and hair! I am looking to get a camera for christmas and I have to ask what kind you use? I have a canon 6d but I am looking for a nice point and shoot that is easier to carry around! Would love to know thank you 🙂

  17. I watched your extension video – where did you biy them from or what brand/kind do you use? I know nothing about them but I just love your hair!

  18. Your hair and fashion are amazing!! Your braids are so cute and i love all your shoes

  19. Loved this tutorial Amber! I am looking for a nicer holiday dress for the holidays, but I can’t seem to find any! I was wondering if you had seen any? I really appreciate your opinion!

  20. Thanks for showing us your ways, you brilliant hair babe! Seriously, braids were so little house on the prairie until I stumbled across your incredible mane! Just curious if you would mind adding in your comments what length of extensions you use and how many you have in when do your posts?? I OF COURSE watched your “hair extensions 101” video and now I want to properly apply the to the amaze tutorials you give us! Thank you again for sharing!

    1. Oh yes I totally meant to add that!!! These are 24 inches long – so SUPER long! I don’t usually wear them with my hair down mainly just for braids but you will love them! xoxox

  21. You are so fun to follow…great style! I love the green coat you are wearing in instagram while you are apartment shopping in NYC. Did you get it recently? Where is it from? Would love any details! Thanks!

    1. Thanks girl!! Oh yes that coat is a favorite of mine, it will be on the blog soon! I got it in orange and green because I loved it so much, it is from J. Crew! I got mine 30% off so if you can wait I would until they have another 30% off sale 🙂

  22. I want extensions just for the sake of your GORGEOUS braids! I love them so much!

    xoxo hails.

  23. Amazing video Amber! So well filmed and edited.

    What colour are you wearing on your lips here? I loooove.

    1. Aw thank you!! I so don’t know what I am doing when I edit videos so thank you! I am wearing MAC ‘Fanfare’ but I also have on ‘Myth’ underneath! xx

    1. Haha!! So laughed out loud for this! YES your boobs grow a 10 times bigger when you nurse your baby! I wish they would stay like this 🙁 sadly they shrink back to normal after!

  24. So gorgeous and creative- watched this tutorial in the morning on YouTube. It is unbelievable that you wear extensions- they look so real and gorgeous!!!

  25. Eeeeee so excited about this one! I did it the other day after you posted but I did a regular braid underneath because I didn’t think about it maybe being a fishtail! Makes so much sense now. Can’t wait to do it right! xoxo

    1. A braid could probably work too but I think the fishtail gives it a little more texture!! I am glad you like it!! xoxox

  26. Amber, this is beautiful! I was also wondering if you’ll be doing a Q&A session soon because I’m dying to ask you some questions, like how come your husband lived in Croatia? I have family there so am curious haha. Lots of love! xo

    1. I would love to do a Q&A! My husband was in Croatia because he served an LDS mission there!

      1. Ok, I see, how interesting..! Thanks for your response. I’m impressed that he can speak Croatian! Hope you have a lovely day! <3
