12 Days of Christmas Giveaway – WIN MY BOOK!


Hi friends!  My book is finally here!  It felt so amazing to hold the first copy of my book in my hands.   This is a dream come true and to thank you for all your support I’m going to be posting 12 videos over the next few weeks and giving away 2 books for each video.  If you follow me on facebook, twitter or instagram you will have seen a picture like the one above.  This is the key to winning yourself a copy!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Rules:

Between now and Christmas 2013 I will be giving away two copies of my book DIY Braids for each of the 12 videos I will be posting.  That is a total of 24 books that will go to my subscribers!  Here’s how it will work:

I will be posting a video every other day at 10:00AM PST until December 25, 2013.   You will have until 10:00 AM two days later to regram(instagram), retweet(twitter) and share(Facebook) the contest photo shown in this video and TAG asksash88.   You can find the contest photo on my instagram, twitter and facebook fan page.  Here are the links to those websites:




For each video that I post you can enter up to 3 times (once on twitter, once on facebook and once on instagram).  So that means that if you posted on each of the 3 websites for all 12 videos you would have 36 entries into the contest.  YOU MUST TAG ME so that I can see your post and enter your name into the drawing.   After the two days are up all the names will be added to an excel spreadsheet and I will use random.org to pick two winners for that day.  I will post the winner’s names on my blog by 5:00 PST the day they are drawn so please, please, please sign up for email updates on my blog and check it frequently.  Here is a link to my blog:


Your entries will accumulate as the contest goes on so for the first drawing you could have up to 3 entries and by the 12th drawing you could have up to 36 entries built up.  The more you enter the better your chances of winning!

Here is the schedule for the 12 days of Christmas Giveaway:

1st Day of Christmas: December 3, 2013 (winners will be announced 12/5)

2nd Day of Christmas: December 5, 2013(winners will be announced 12/7)

3rd Day of Christmas: December 7, 2013(winners will be announced 12/9)

12th Day of Christmas: December 25, 2013(winners will be announced 12/27)

If you enter more than once on one of the 3 websites I don’t mind if you delete the older entry because I know you probably don’t want 12 pictures of my book on your instagram :P  Just make sure you have at least one entry up at all times so that if your name is drawn I will have a place to contact you to get your email address.

Each person can only win one book.  Once you win, you are no longer eligible to win again.  The contest is open internationally.


Make sure your security settings allow me to see your posts or else I won’t know you entered.  If your posts are completely private I won’t be able to see them.

On INSTAGRAM do not just hashtag #asksash88 –Its too hard for me to keep track of it.  Tag me like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12yBh_dWmWI

On FACEBOOK make sure to like my facebook fan page and then type in @asksash88 when you share it.

On TWITTER I would prefer instead of just hitting retweet if you would write “RT @asksash88” and the follow that with the copy of my tweet.

Tucked French Braid

Hi!  So this is a really simple hairstyle that anyone who can french braid can do.  Even if you can’t I’m sure you have a friend or family member who can do it for you!  What I love about this look is that when you tuck in the braid it makes the bottom of the french braid look super chunky.  Enjoy!

Fishtail Braid Ponytail

Hi!  So this is just a really simple hairstyle that I thought would be great for those days you just need to get your hair out of your face but still want your hair to look a little more exciting than the classic ponytail.  It would also be a great hairstyle for sports.  I hope you enjoy it!

3 Easy, Quick, Everyday Hairstyles

I got inspired to do these looks from a post I found on thebeautydepartment.com called “Quick Twist” found here .   The look was supposed to be for only people with short or medium length hair but I modified it a bit to work for longer hair as well.  Hope you enjoy!

Flashback Fridays

Hi Friends.  I thought I would start devoting a post every friday to videos I did before I started my blog.  People have often asked if I had a place to post pictures of the hairstyles I did so they could reference them easily without going through the whole video…now I do!  Sorry the picture quality isn’t that great.  These are screen shots of the video that was on my old camera.  Anyways I hope you enjoy!
