my top 5 braids

October 16, 2012
[Crown Braid: This is my hands down favorite. It’s definitely a challenge to learn- I fumbled with it for nearly 45 minutes the first time I tried it. I’ve got it down pat now. The effect is romantic and a bit renaissance-inspired.]

Basic ponytails have never been my thing. I’ve always been drawn to the intricate weaving of  braids instead. Here’s a recap of my top 5 favorites (all link back to tutorials)

[Braided Bun: This is my “go-to” style anytime it’s rainy/humid. It’s a great way to hide a bad hair day! The volume at the top and sides gives it a softer look than a regular bun]
[Triple Braid: This one looks complicated, but actually it’s rather easy. It’s 3 fishtail braids that are braided together]
[4 Strand Braid: I always attract a lot of attention with this braid. It’s funny how adding another strand to the braiding process can change the look so drastically. 4 strand braiding is a little tricky to get use to, but once you do you’ll see it isn’t much harder than the 3 strand method.
[Braided Cat Ears: I had to re-post this since Halloween is coming up! It’s very easy to do and it’s a cute, low-maintenance costume for school or work.]
