Pictorial instructions for fun braids!
Oct 13th, 2009 at 12:39pm
 
When I learn a braid I really need to see how it's done, so I was scouring the internet, and here are some good ones I found.


Box & Fish bone braids:

Great links Tara, thanks!  On the French Rope, it looks like she's French braiding as usual, but twisting the strands as she goes so that it looks like a rope.

Good information, pictures that actually make sense Wink

I actually own the book that the first example is in. Lots of information on all aspects of hair care also.

ooooh, I see!  I didn't realize while I was at that site the first time, that it was also a book.  Awesome!  I need to get it now!  Cheesy

Well the reason I was looking at braids is because I am going to a wedding this weekend and I want to do something new with my hair.  It's going to be outside in the cold which my hair is not used to, so I can't wear it down, and I'm sick of the same old buns.  Anyone have any ideas?

Also, has anyone ever done a rope braid on their hair when wet and then taken it down?  I'm curious what it would look like, if it's wavy or curly or just crazy.

Hopefully I can get some new pics of my hair up soon >_<


*EDIT*  This isn't a braid, but does anyone know how to do THIS?

Think your hair might be able to handle this?  Cheesy

...

That site also has a lot of other great looking braids. I've always been partial to crown braids, myself.

This pic is blurry and small, but this is the rope braid!  It's pretty easy and I think I love it!  I apply a little bit of gel all over the outside once I'm finished and it really helps keep the fly-aways down.
