The Snow Queen: how to make Elsa’s braid?

Tuto hairstyle: The braid of Elsa from The Frozen

The animated film The Frozen is a planetary box. All little girls (and little boys too) only have eyes for the beautiful Princess Elsa. And many of them dream of having the same hairstyle: this sublime voluminous braid. Notice to moms, we will explain how to make this famous hairstyle, which is none other than an African braid on the side, thanks to the advice of the blogger Alicia (). This young mother made the braid on her little girl and the result is bluffing. We let you discover the tutorial.

Step 1 : Untangle the hair and make a stripe on the side. Put all the hair on one side. Take a small wick on the top of the head. Divide it into three equal parts and start the braid. 
Step 2 : Start by making a classic braid. For that, it is enough to pass alternatively the wick of right above that of the middle then the wick of left above that of the middle. As you weave, add strands of hair to incorporate them into the braid so that it sticks to the skull and follows the path of the hair. Tighten more or less the braid according to your desire. 
Step 3: Pass the last strands of the braid under the left ear. Finish by making a classic braid that you will drop on the shoulder. That’s it. You can make this same braid in a more classic way in the back. In this case, take a wick on the top of the head where you want the braid to start. 
Little trick : to give more relief to the braid, you can execute it upside down. In this case, take the three strands, except that instead of passing the right and left strands above the middle, you pass them below. Last, this hairstyle can be performed on all types of hair, including the finest, but it is best that they are long (at least the shoulder).

At 23, He adopts the look of Prince George for a week!

We know that Prince George is a true fashion icon. All his outfits are deciphered, and on each of his official releases (or not elsewhere), the clothes he wears are stormed by young moms around the world. But it seems that Baby George is also a source of inspiration for young men like Max Knoblauch. Aged 23, this journalist from the American site “Mashable” has chosen to dress like the little prince for a week. A rather crazy idea! In fact, the journalist simply finds that the son of Kate Middleton and Prince William has a much more hectic life than his. “Prince George is a baby, he has never done anything of his life as I have never done anything of mine. So I’m perfect for that. ” As he points out, “no one has ever complimented [his] style … while  Prince George was named the 49th best-dressed man in Britain by GQ magazine.”

Wishing that people change their minds about his style of dress, Max embarked on this original adventure. As he explains: he has faced two challenges: finding clothes to his size and avoid being arrested!

At the end of the week, this real “field journalist” explains that this experience has taught him many things. “New Yorkers do not care what you wear.” Moreover, according to him, “we should all try to be royal babies”. Who knows, he may be launching a new trend: the royal style baby for men … Not sure that women appreciate! In any case, I do not adhere at all. I prefer the miniature version.

Moscow: a fashion show with “armed” children creates controversy

In Russia, little girls marched armed with plastic guns to advocate peace in the world. But far from moving, the show has aroused strong criticism …

As every year, Russia puts the spotlight on headgear at the famous CHAPEAU fair. During this event, several parades and stands present the latest trends in contemporary Russian and international fashion. And we can say that the 2014 edition, which was held a few days ago in Moscow, was strong, even very strong.

While the war rages in eastern Ukraine between Ukrainian soldiers and pro-Russian separatists, a show with children has created controversy. And for good reason, little girls aged between 10 and 12, dressed in colorful dresses from different countries, walked on the catwalk. Each wore a hat representing a lighthouse monument of the nation in question. So far nothing abnormal. The problem was that these young ladies had fake rifles that they ran, in turn, to the public. Models from countries like Russia, France, China, Spain or Britain pointed their weapons at the assembly. For once, I’m not a fan. But what is more disconcerting is that the little girl wearing the blue and yellow colors of Ukraine has squarely directed the weapon against his head, miming a suicide, after having also directed his weapon towards the spectators, then towards the little “Russian” and the little “American”.

Fortunately, the end is much less creepy since a girl, dressed as an angel, comes to disarm all his colleagues. And little girls wearing the colors of the United States, Ukraine and Russia join hands.

At the height of her 10th birthday, Alita Andrishevskaya, the so-called creator of this show, who also represented Russia, explained that the theme of her pageant was “the children of the world against the war” . The presenter of the event, moreover added that this show “was inspired by the events in Ukraine. This table shows that all the children of the world are united, they are friends and want peace. For their part, the organizers insisted that this show was “not at all political”. No kidding? Despite the rather benevolent end, I am not convinced. Did the young Alita really do this show alone? The costumes, the hats, the weapons and the staging? One wonders … Many adults, whether Russians or Ukrainians do not already understand this war. So children? !!

In order to calm the controversy, Alita posted on social networks a photo of all “countries” gathered with the legend: “that’s how it should be. This poor child and all the others were certainly used to make a “beautiful” propaganda message.

7 years, Down syndrome and … muse of a clothing brand

Even if mentalities evolve too slowly, there is progress! In Britain, a 7-year-old girl with Down syndrome, better known as trisomy 21, has been chosen to be the face of a clothing brand. This is indeed what the Daily Mail reports. 

The small Natty, from the city of Padstow, was selected from a hundred young models to be the face of the new campaign Sainsbury’s brand, the third largest chain stores.

The girl becomes the main model of their school uniforms. Clients and customers, young and old, will be able to wander in the stores and find the posters of the little star. It will also be on the catalogs of the sign. Like a real star!

“We are delighted that so many people will see that Natty is just a charming, bright and cheerful little girl,” says the young model’s mother.

Sainsbury’s is a good demonstration of the difference. But this type of approach is still too rare. How shocking is it to put a baby with Down’s Syndrome at the top of the bill as long as it is not a question of recovering the handicap to sell … but simply to change mentalities, or show that everyone can be beautiful. At a time when appearance and the race for perfection takes precedence over everything, the signs certainly fear for their image. Fortunately, some dare to take the lead. 

And this is not the first time that a brand for children decides to take young people with Down syndrome to represent its collections. In 2011, Alysia Lewis, owner of Urban Angels, a UK children’s modeling agency, chose Taya for her liveliness and sense of humor. “She’s an incredibly photogenic child,” she said then. And I agree with her. What’s more beautiful than a child’s smile!

In 2012, in the United States, the little Ryan, aged 6, parade him for the brands Nordstrom and Target.

The same year, it was the Spanish designer, Dolores Cortes, specializing in the design of swimwear, who had taken as a face, Valentina, a 10-month-old girl with trisomy 21. As explained by the designer at the Time: ” People with trisomy 21 are all as beautiful and deserve the same opportunities as others. I am delighted that Valentina poses for us  . “
