    Default Braid waves are us!!!

    Today, I put my hair in two pigtails (english braids) soaking wet and crammed a cowboy hat on my head for most of the day....airdried the pigtails that way.....just took them out to do a measuring pic for my Waist by Christmas thread, and I'm amazed at the braid waves!!!! Show me your braid waves too!!!!

    My hair likes braidwaves as well, and I have fun un-braiding at work to show off.

    Those are so cool. I should have taken a pic of the curls I had after I took down the zipper braid my husband did for me. He is going to put it up again Saturday so I'll get a pic Sunday when I take it down.

    So, I have a question. How do those with shorter layers get braid waves?
    Is it even possible?
    I have considered maybe looking like an alien and doing two braids on the shorter layers of my hair, Then two on the length of my hair 4 braids total.
    I have tried doing french braids but they always fall so loose.
    I hate that my hair tapers so thin and to even braid it they have to be tight, then me ends look frizzy and FRIED
    Taking an LHC break.

    When my hair was shorter (I have layers too), I would part my hair down the middle, and do two french braids on each side, going towards the back. Got lots of compliments too....hmmmm, haven't done them for awhile......
