Welcome to Day 4 of our series where we challenged you to try a new, fast hairstyle every day this week! Keep reading for today’s style…
As this school week comes to an end, I thought I would share my favorite style for keeping my hair back. Sometimes it’s nice to just get it all back and out of the way for once, especially since I have side-bangs and layers!
Wearing a french braid makes me feel so French I want all the french fries and french bread and… jk. 😉
I’ve gotten so fast at doing a french braid on myself that I can do it anytime, anywhere, and without a mirror. The perfect portable life-saver…
Learn This Style:
Here’s the video I saw when I first learned to french braid on myself! Braiding behind your head can be really hard, but this girl gives very clear, detailed, simple instructions that taught me how. Enjoy!
I like to pull out some shorter hair around my face from the french braid, to soften the style and… so I don’t look scalped. 😛
Ever since a little friend drew a portrait of me during church from his row in front of us… I’ve tried to make sure my updos, ponytails, or braids have at least some hair visible from the front. I literally had no hair in the picture, because he couldn’t see any!!! lol 😂 😂 *hides*
This style is especially gorgeous on thick hair, so, y’all sweet commenters, be sure to try it out!! And if your hair is shorter, just end the french braid in a ponytail at the base of your head instead of continuing to braid the rest of your hair. 🙂
I encourage you to master this french braid on your own hair. It takes lots of practice to be able to make it not lumpy or loopy (eyes on the back of your head would be so useful, right?!!), but it is so worth the time-saving and ease later on. 😀
What is your favorite kind of braid?
