6 In beauty/ style

braids of glory.


[1, 2, 3]

One thing I know for sure: I love braids. They are versatile, laid-back and playful, and are perfectly acceptable to wear for casual as well as formal occasions. Recently my blogger friend Bonnie from Going Home to Roost asked me for some hair-braiding tips and instantly I had an idea: a blog mini-series!

In the coming weeks (and in no particular order), I’ll share tutorials for how to do the following styles:

  • traditional french braid
  • katniss braid
  • braided bangs
  • double braid (braided bangs with side french braid)
  • fishtail braid
  • braided updo

I haven’t decided if I’ll teach you the steps by photo, or by video (or perhaps a mix of the two), but I promise I’ll help you learn how to master the art of the braid.

Which braid(s) are you most exited to learn?

      Yes, I’m really nervous about the videos, but definitely going to try my best to make them because they are always the most helpful to me when I’m looking at other people’s tutorials. Wish me luck!

    my hair is still kinda too short to do braids, but when it gets longer, i’m excited to try it out. i would vote for a mix, because i’m the person who needs to see the whole process in action, but pictures definitely help.

      Thanks for the input–I’m definitely going to try to get as much video in as possible (as long as everyone promises to not make fun of my on-camera awkwardness!!!)
