Happy Easter Hairstyle

Hello friends,

I hope you had a lovely Easter!  My hairstyle for the day was a combination of several braids~ a small 4-strand French braid, a rope-braided bun, a finger-crochet accent, and a small bow accent.  I basically made it up as I went along :-)

1-Strand Knot Braid & Big Bun

Hi friends,

Happy Easter!  Yesterday I tried out a 1-strand pretzel knot braid that I learned from my new braid book.  I like the look of these knotted braids that she demonstrates so clearly.  They are fun!  My bun is basically loops and rolls piled together.  This is one of my favorite recent hairstyles, I think :-)

My look for today~ 4-piece Box Braid

Hi friends,

I tried a lace-braid version of the box braid today, and combined it with a (slightly) messy bun.  I love the look of this type of braid, very 3-D :-)

Upside-down French Braid

I finally attempted an upside-down French braid!  I started out with thoroughly combed-out hair, so the tangles were minimum.  I was able to keep my hair basically tangle-free by running my fingers down to the ends of my hair each time I added a new section.  For the top, I added another French braid going in the normal direction with my left-over hair.  I like the over-all gathered look that this hairstyle has on each side~ and it's stayed up all day long!

Hair-Bows

Hello friends,

Today I finally managed to make my first hair-bow braid!  I added another hair-bow as an accent to my bun.  This look was very popular among all my friends who saw it in person...thank you for stopping in to see my pictures!
