Yesterday I tried parting my hair in a new way that I learned from my book, called a Teardrop. First you section off hair for a hairband braid. Then you Dutch lace braid the hair directly behind your hairband section, from behind one ear all the way across to your other ear. When that braid is finished, you braid the hairband section in the opposite direction. I had accidentally left out a tiny section of hair, so I turned it into an accent piece.
