14 In beauty/ style

braids of glory: the bangs.

Today I give you the very first installment of the braids of glory series. This is not only my first-ever tutorial video, but also my first time sharing a video of myself on this blog period. While I’m tempted to let my insecurities take over, I know many of you wanted a video and a video you will have! I hope it’s helpful to you as you learn to master the art of the braid.

A quick note: please excuse the jingling sound halfway through the video—my pup Maggie always picks the worst times to make noise!

This is what the end result should look like :)

P.S. You can find all posts in this series here, or by clicking on “braids of glory” under the posts by series section in the sidebar.

Was this helpful? If so, what made it so? If not, how can I improve in the future tutorial videos?

      Thank you, Gennean! Being on video is so intimidating, but it’s also refreshing to just show you girls what I’m really like (which can’t necessarily be done in photos, haha). Hope you enjoy the tutorial! xoxo

    I love this! I have the hardest time getting this braid trend down, but your video was easy to follow. Thank you!
