Q: Does the hairstyles that are in the boxes come with any tidbits on origins or historical tidbits of each hairstyle?Asked by Hilarie H., July 2019
Thanks for asking! I don't usually give historical info on the braid... but
I do include why I decided on the braid and some tips and tricks as well as
an instructional step-by-step video on how to create the braid. Hope that
helps! XOXO - Erin
Fantastic box! My daughter and I enjoy the boxes and the mother/daughter time they foster. Instructions are clear and precise but there is room for creativity too. Once had an issue. Was resolved immediately and generously. My girl's hair is only shoulder length and we can use the boxes.
My daughter is very in love with her boxes product quality is amazing everything is beautiful
A great box with many fun items to make such a cute hairstyle! My daughter loves it! Thank you!
Braid Box by Erin is so much fun! Each detail is carefully thought out and is so adorably boxed, that I almost want to keep it all there and not use it! But, not for long! Erin provides instructions and video tutorials on ways to use the Braid Box items. She gives you the tools and the ideas to start, so if you aren't super creative on your own, you have some direction, but if you want to come up with your own ideas, you're able to do that, too! We love receiving our box each month, and I know you will too!
Snowflake Hair Charms ❄️❄️❄️ These thread onto the hair like “beads” using a handy tool. They are so versatile & can be added to any braid!
The theme for this box is hair stenciling 💕 I put a variety of hearts sizes and patterns in the box as well as dry shampoo, pink hair spray, bobby pins, and magnets. (This hair spray washes out of hair and off of the stencils easily btw.)
We're over the rainbow for this braid!🌈 This box has several items, including a custom, hand-crafted Rainbow-Cloud & Hair Clip!
In the April boxes you'll receive several items, including a basket full of miniature Easter Eggs (with ribbons attached), 3 Styles of Ribbon (3yds each), a Pink Headband, Bunny Hair Clips, and a "Hare" Towel 🐰😉 You also got a bit of green crinkle cut paper which doubles nicely as grass for the basket 🙌🏼 I did a version of this basket last year and worked to simplify and improve it.
One of the most interesting items you'll find when you open your box are the flower-shaped Velcro Hair Stickers. I use these to give a "backing" to the Hair Flower. Also included are Pearl Brads that are placed in the center of the flower, Mini Bobby Pins that are easier to hide when securing the flower in place, and hairspray to keep everything looking neat. Plus you will find Mini Flower Claw Clips that can be added to almost any braid to add a touch of Spring 🌷
It's time to share the June Braid Box Hairstyle ...Ice Cream Cone Hair🍦This simple and fun hairstyle is made using a custom-designed "Scoop"-shaped bun maker and an Ice Cream Cone hair accessory that anchors onto the hair with an elastic 👊🏼 The entire look is topped off with a Cherry Clip 🍒
The Swim Braid Box is jam-packed with so many amazing things! Two hand-made "Towel" scrunchies so wet hair doesn't drip down your back 🙌, TWO sets (pink & blue) of one-of-a-kind Waterproof Bows (yes, waterproof!!💦), a rainbow elastic tin with magnetic seam-ripper, and my favorite parting comb to make styling easier. You’ll notice there is no metal clip on the bows. Instead, I designed a plastic piece I call a “Bow Anchor” than inserts into the hair behind an elastic.
SO many fun things included in the Mermaid Braid Box... high-end Starfish Bobby Pins, Mermaid Glitter Pouch, a Shell Brush that kids love, and beautiful Kanekalon Hair 🙌 The Kanekalon Hair is so smooth and nice to work with and can be reused over and over! 💜
In this box, you received a tool I designed and named the Ribbonator 💪🏼 You also received 3 different cards of ribbon each with a corresponding Ribbonator to use with that ribbon. In the video, I show you how to use this tool to weave the ribbon in and out of the hair. I made a checker pattern but this tool can be used to add ribbon into the hair in many other ways too.
