Just when I think I've found a favorite braid, another favorite happens <3 My look today ended up being four random 4-strand braids, meaning that I made no parts before I started braiding. I just took a small section of hair, split it in four sections, and began my braid, adding hair as I went down. I put my braids into a low ponytail and pulled on the edges to give them a blossom effect. Because the braids were 4-strand rather than Dutch braids, the pulled-out sections looked like overlapping loops. This reminded me of a Micronesian ginger lei, where the stems of the flowers overlap each other in loops.
I finished my braided hairstyle off with a low bun, and took pictures outside in our front yard underneath a beautiful blooming bougainvillea tree. Thank you for coming to see my post, and I hope you have a wonderful week-end.
