I have an obsession with shoes, like all girls, but I have to admit that I have an even bigger obsession with hair braids- all types and all kinds of hair braids. Braids can be statements on their own, however they also could be worn in the wrong way; making a busy outfit look bad. They are worn best with simple outfits so they can stand out. There are a variety of braids, each different and unique; here are my favorites:
The Waterfall Braid
This braid is very creative and “flowy”. It has a fantasy aspect about it, that when you wear it, it kinda makes you feel like your in the lord of the rings, or like a pixie. It’s extremely feminine and a little difficult to do on your own.
The Fishtail Braid…With a Twist
Everyone knows the fishtail braid; it is beautiful and easy. In this case, I did the braid with a little 3 strand plaited crown around my head so that it would make it a bit different. The next two braids are built on the fishtail braid.
The Cage Braid
This is a new and unique braid, which could only be done with a ponytail. The braid really does look like a cage and is very delicate and fragile.
The Mermaid Braid
This is my favorite braid because it is so elegant yet whimsical, which refers to it’s name.
