Micronesian Girl~ Double 4-strand French braids

Hey everybody,

Thanks to all of you, we reached 70,000 page views today!!!  I have some very pretty braids to share with you via pictures, these double 4-strand French braids.  I love a 4-strand braid because one side looks like a Dutch braid and the other side looks like a French braid.

My look for today~ micro-braids in a waterfall braid

Hey everybody,

Thank you so much for following my new posts!  I kept my micro-braids in from yesterday's Bohemian herringbone braid bun and added a sideways waterfall braid plus a low bun to make my look for today. Waterfall braids are unbelievably easy but add so much interest!

Bohemian Herringbone Braid Bun

Hello friends,

I really liked the Herringbone Braid Bun that I posted a few weeks ago, and today tried another slightly altered variation.  This time I made three small accent braids at the front of my head directly behind my fringe, and put my hair into a high ponytail.  I poofed my ponytail up a bit with a jaw hair clip, flipped my hair up and over, bent forward so that my ponytail hung upside down in front of me, and braided a loose fishtail braid with bigger sections of hair.  I wound my braid up into a big bun and held it in place with my Grah-Toe Studio hair fork and bobby pins.  The result was this slightly messy Bohemian-style high bun~

Have a beautiful day!

My look for today~ Overlapped French braids

Hi friends,

I hope you are having a beautiful Saturday!  Today I fixed my hair in this overlapped French braid style.  If you look closely, you can see how I gathered hair for the left French braid along my hairline at the top of my head and from the outer left side; the for the right French braid I gathered hair from the center of my head underneath the first French braid, and from the right side of my head.

Pictures will make my attempts at describing what I did much easier to understand :-)

Thank you so much for viewing my post!

Micronesian Girl~ Micro-Braids

Hi everybody!

Thanks for helping me reach 67,000+ views~ soon to be at 70,000!  The pictures I have to share with you all today are cute cornrow braids, or as I like to call them:


My look for today~ Off-center French ladder braid

Hi everybody,

Today I experimented with a French waterfall braid.  I made a waterfall French braid on the left side, from the top of my head down to just below my ear.  Then I made another French braid on the right side, but added in the left-over hair from my waterfall braid.  I put my loose hair that had not been included in either braid into a low ponytail, and wound my hair up into a bun.  Then I wrapped the two braids around my center bun and held everything in place with a hairclip on the side.
