One of my goals last year was to learn how to french braid. I didn't accomplish it in 2010 but I have now. Better late than never!
My mom showed me some braiding tips when she was here and I have been practicing since. My braiding is far from perfect but I'm working on it. Next, I want to figure out how to do a crown braid. I loved wearing my hair in a crown braid when I was little. This is me in preschool with a crown braid. I sure wish my hair had stayed that color!!
It is (surprisingly) easier to braid my own hair than to braid Sutton's. She hates the process but she loves the result.
Here I did a braid on either side of her head. She called it a braid headband. I love not having hair hanging in her face.
Sutton especially loved this next one. Two french braids clipped together. I made the yellow rosette clip a couple of months ago. Too bad Sutton lost it in the backyard five minutes after we took this picture. :)
While we are on the subject of hair, today I am sporting the "three twisted buns" look I have seen popping up all over the blog world, seen first at cup of jo. My curls add to the messy look but it sure is comfortable to have the hair off my neck and a fun change from my usual ponytail.
It's very fitting I am posting about braids on a Wednesday. I just found a flickr group called braid wednesday- lots of great inspiration there! I think I should join to make sure I keep up on my new skill! Who's with me?
