Just so you know I now hc that otabek learned how to braid hair from practicing on his little sister. And now he gets to practice on yuri. Okay bye! <333

MY HC TOO!!! I also hc that yuri and beka’s sis fight over who beka braids first >:3c


long time no art! here are some hairstyle ideas for ffxv swaps. originally started as a request for prompto styles, then i kept going c:

prom: requester specified no braids. kept the bangs the same across the board to make her a little more recognizable. spends the most time on her hair.
ignis: braids braids braids. how is her hair still straight? magic.
noct: won’t cut it ever probably. takes care of it but doesn’t do as much styling as her counterpart. layered, naturally a little wavy.

gladio, luna, and ardyn coming soon(?)



If you struggle with braids and you have short hair to boot, then you’re going to LOVE this cheat braid! It’s easily done on long hair; you may have seen my tutorial using this technique on myself recently. But I was inundated with requests for it to be recreated on someone with shorter hair - so here it is

You can forget the need to weave three strands of hair while consecutively picking up new strands as you go, this technique is SO simple, you just need some clear hair elastics and you’re good to go! 
You can purchase them in UK here: 
Or, if you’re in the US click here:

You can also complete the makeup in just 5 minutes - once you have all the products laid out and you know what you’re doing. It’s a simple but effective way to enhance your natural beauty in quick time! 

You can follow KrystalRoxx ‘here’.

vanessa with two braids? being cute?

!! i like the way you think !!


In a vague attempt to feel productive I thought I’d make up a quick and dirty “How-to Draw Braids” thing. I hope you can read my horrendous handwriting…

I hope it’s useful to someone! Braids are so much fun to draw, honestly, and the world deserves more art with pretty braids in it.

Oh, and if you want to draw Elsa-style braids, simply draw the pattern upside down. Easy-peasy!

Let me know if this helped! Show me your results! And remember, practice makes perfect. :)

The element of Air

The winds are ever changing and uncontrollable,

at times gentle and soft

other times violent and ruthless

but always, always uncontrollable.

the element of air stands out from the other elements.

all of the other elements; earth, fire, water, are all visible, and touchable (dont burn ya self lol)

air however, is only visible as it shakes the tree tops, and turns the leafs rustling into music

as such, people often have a harder time finding ways to incorporate the element of air into their craft.

here are a few easy and simple ideas for that;

🍃this can be done everywhere, on your way to work, or in the comfort of your garden;

notice the way your lungs expand with each breath.
visualize the pure air, cleansing your body and mind of all troubles bothering you.
this is very effective if you´ve had a particularly bad day at work or school, and have no way to leave the situation making you uncomfortable

🍃notice the sound the leafs and grass makes, as they are touched by the wind

really tune into the sound.
hum along to the breeze (the little folk really enjoys this as well),
if you want to, you can even make a little song out of the melody. i used to this a lot when i were a child. you really get in contact with your inner child.

🍃dancing. yes it sounds silly and it sure is! (this is also something the faery folk likes), but feeling the way the wind touches your body, and letting it sway you is both fun and a very good way of bonding.

🍃on car rides, particularly hot days, sticking you hand out the way and notice how the wind braids itself around your fingers, now try moving your hand and fingers in different ways, it is a really good calming method, if you´re feeling annoyed as well.

🍃opening your windows, and letting new air in. sit and notice how the atmosphere slowly changes.

🍃if it´s a stormy day out, i like to visualize the wind going trough me, encouraging bravery and strength, this always makes me feel very powerful, and witchy

🍃doing spells in stormy weather, particularly ones for strength, courage or curses is a super good way to get you in the mood, and gives an extra energy boost to the spell
