It’s no secret that next to a house, a car is probably one of the biggest purchases many of us will ever make in our lifetime. The problem that many people face, however, is the lack of decent parking for their pride and joy. Some simply park it on the street, leaving their precious metal open to the elements--both natural and criminal ones.
Then there are those who are a bit more resourceful. While they don’t exactly have a covered garage or carport, they pitch a makeshift tent that covers their vehicle from the sun. This may be quite handy, but a strong wind and other natural occurrences can still ruin a shiny paint or wax job. Thankfully, all this may just be a thing of the past, thanks to this new innovation called Gazebox.
The name is actually a play on words since the whole contraption is itself a mix of three things: a carport, a garage and a gazebo. Think of it as pitching a very secure tent for your car, yet it is something that has a lot more uses when you need it. The Gazebox is made from special UV-resistant polycarbonate panels the keep out the sun’s harmful rays. While the usual tent can do this, too, the Gazebox can likewise protect your car from bad weather. And with an anchor system that’s fixed to the ground, along with durable side structures, you’re assured of a safe garage for your precious ride. You can even customize the thing, lock it up, and operate it with a push-button garage door opener.
If the standard structure isn’t cool enough for you, you can opt for some pretty nifty add-ons. These include an aerator, an anti-theft alarm, a compact vacuum cleaner, and a hail and rain detector (which might go crazy in our weird weather). If you’re really loaded, you can even specify air-conditioning, so you can brag that you have a garage with regulated temperature. Now get this: When you need the space for a party, the Gazebox is the perfect place to hold that shindig. As mentioned earlier, it is covered and secure. All you need to do is drive your car out and you’ve got the space to carouse! Speaking of space, the Gazebox can be specified in a wide range of dimensions and styles, all suited to your needs and budget. And it only casts a small footprint so finding a suitable spot won’t be a problem. Who knows? This might just be the next big thing in parking.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
