I'm LOVING the braids I'm seeing all over the place, they're so simple to do but can look really stunning!
The side-braid is coming in handy for whenever I have to wear a hood (rainy school runs) as my hair's getting so long (yay!) it just mattes itself up at the back if I leave it down. It's also my go-to style for excercise now. When i do that stuff. I recently learned to do the fishtail braid via Youtube videos, which was fun - though my hair is thin so I don't get a plait as wide as I would like. Today I've got my grown out fringe plaited and clipped because my hair dried itself with a weird parting while I was busy doing something else.... see, they're so useful :)
(I swear I'm not as boring and practical a that paragraph makes me sound. Oh god maybe I am... I blame being a mama! I must find time to look pretty for the sake of fashion. Yeah)
The bonus is you get wavy mermaid hair afterwards!
I keep meaning to get round to trying these cute "French Braided Bangs" too:
Or maybe a lower-on-the-forehead version like this:
I'm not entirely sure either version will work on me but I'll give them a go at some point - damn widows peak/cowlick/high forehead combination ruins everything! ;)
Who else has been rocking the braids? I'm sure I'm late to the party.
