Braids

As a girl, I am very drawn to trying out any type of hairstyle (at least once). Well, just as long as I don't have to cut my hair short for that. But as far as colours go, I have tried every hue under the sun at one point or another.

Lately, I have been experimenting with braiding my hair. I used to braid it from time to time while I was staying indoors, just to make sure I kept it out of my eyes. But today I wore a more serious hairstyle, suitable for public display. Which brings me to today's subject: braids.

One of the hottest hair trend for a couple of years now (see Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors). Messy, chic, proper, sexy... you name it! Any of these is pure perfection if you know how to sport it: with a lot of effervescence! I have yet to try the mermaid/fishtail braid... I suspect my hair is (still) a little bit too short for that particular hairstyle.

Here are a few collages, featuring images hand picked on tumblr:

  1. O yeah! I LOVE braids! I have been doing it ever since LC started braiding the front of her hair a few years ago. I can't wait until my hair is long enough to braid it to the side, I love that look!

  3. Looks great! But it also looks like so much work and time that you have to spend to do such things with hair ;)

  6. I love doing my hair in braids, its one of those styles I keep coming back to if I get bored. I especially love to do them when my hair is streaked or highlighted, a cool effect!
