all the cool girls wear braids

Although I've been debating a shorter cut, I have to admit that I'm totally smitten with all of the gorgeous braids popping up on the interwebs (especially on Pinterest). Disheveled, devil-may-care crowns of woven locks, long single ropes and twisted undone up-do's all look so romantic and effortless. Unfortunately I am not too gifted in the self-braiding department, but with a little practice maybe I can master a few of these looks.

  1. This is the best time to use your lack-of-self-braiding-gift gift to your advantage! I've been braiding my own hair for always, starting in the the super tight, no-frizz-allowed, french-braid-starting-at-your-hairline days. But I'm learning that a looser hand (and some back combing) is necessary to achieve the volume and effortlessness of these looks. Love them, too!
