I love the look of a French braid made with four-strands as opposed to the normal three-strand version. It's neat how one side of the braid looks like a French braid and the other side looks like a Dutch braid. Here are some more pictures of my look for today:
My braid was too long to wear all the way down, so I folded it up till it was a comfortable length. Then I wrapped the end of my braid around several times and clipped it in place.
Four-strand braids are a nice way to make your hair look super thick!
Thanks for looking at my post :-)
I would like to borrow your idea with folding braid like this, because my hair becomes too long as well. I wonder how long your braid now and at whitch length you stoped to wear it (your braid) down?ReplyDelete
Thank you for your comment! My braid is just a few inches above ankle-length now. I stopped wearing my hair down in a full-length braid a few years ago~ I got tired of having it swish around like a tail (also of getting caught on stuff, etc.)Delete
Actually I find those crazy swinging motions of my braid pretty funny, but you are right, sometimes it brings some inconvenience.Delete
This is just way awesome! Thanks so much for sharing all your awesome pictures! :DReplyDelete
I really, really love your butterfly clips that you have on in a lot of your updos! Where do you get them? :)
Aww, thank you! I get my hairclips at a store here locally...they have had some really pretty ones! Now they are running low, but hopefully soon they will restock.Delete
Aw, they have such pretty clips. I wonder if there's a store here in the US that has clips like that?Delete
Also, I'm curious- do you know how long your hair currently is? Have you reached terminal? Is super long hair common in the islands where you live?
Every time I see your updos, I'm inspired to change my goal length to see maybe how long I can grow it ^^
Thank you so much for your kind comments! There is one place on-line where I have found some really pretty hair jewels and other hair toys~ the address is http://www.sophiasstyle.com/ In fact I'll be posting some new pictures probably tomorrow that show one of the hair forks I got from this website.Delete
I got out the tape measure just now to find out the answer to how long my hair is~ from the crown of my head to the bottom of my hairline is 61 inches. I measured the circumference of my ponytail, too, out of curiosity, and it is 5 inches. That was a pleasant surprise!
Most of the girls here have waist-length hair, although some have hair that is much longer, knee-length or beyond. The island girls all have black hair, very thick and straight.
Thank you for following my posts! I love sharing these pictures with you all.
