View Full Version : Braided by a hairdresser

February 6th, 2013, 12:53 PM
A hairdresser wanted to braid my hair for a very long time and he finally came to visit me. We didn't do any fancy stuff, because with my illness I'm still tired quickly.
But anyway, here are some braid pics!

Watching Rapunzel (duh :p)


Five strand braid that looks like a normal braid

Without the elastic (I don't like it on top)

Fairytale braid, this hairdresser is actually the inventor of this braid :) (discovered by accident, when trying to replicate a waterfall braid from a pic, but he did not realize he was doing something else ) He posted the famous fairytale video and it went extremely viral and now everybody knows this braid. Also the waterfall braid is now very well known (but it is different!)


French braid


Aaand, after the braiding, braiding someone else's hair :)

That fairytale braid is so sweet - especially with your straight hair.

Feel better.

That 5 strand braid looks so thick! And hardly any taper! Your length looks as glossy as ever. Beautiful!

Phalaenopsis, I saw that picture and thought someone had posted a picture of me. You look like you could be my sister! Pretty braids too. Hope you're feeling better.

Beautiful hair and fabulous braiding. I am so pleased that your illness hasn't affected your hair. Hope you are better soon :)

Your hair is so beautiful! I love it. Thank you for sharing pictures!

How pretty! He did a really good job on all of those. You have fantastic hair.

Gorgeous! :crush:

February 6th, 2013, 02:33 PM
your hair is beautiful, and the braids were very pretty too!

February 6th, 2013, 02:38 PM
That is awesome! It must have been a lot of fun. Admittedly doing that while watching movies is a great way to pass the time, especially when it results in the beautiful 'dos you are wearing. Your hair looks phenomenal!

February 6th, 2013, 02:39 PM
Love the braids, phal!

February 6th, 2013, 02:48 PM
Your hair looks fan-super-tastic! (Sigh - why oh why can't I have STRAIGHT hair?!!)

February 6th, 2013, 02:51 PM
Lovely braids! Do you have a link to his fairytale braid video? Hope you feel better soon!

February 6th, 2013, 03:14 PM
Wow, how did you get to yor length with no taper whatsoever? I'm seriously envious. My taper is the bane of my life. I'm slowly, slowly growing it out, but it'll be another two years or so before my ends are even remotely presentable.

Lovely braids! Do you have a link to his fairytale braid video? Hope you feel better soon!

Yes, a link would be nice. :)

Amazing braids. Hope it was fun! :)

Oh my word! Your hair is gorgeous!!!

February 6th, 2013, 09:30 PM
Ooh, you have gorgeous hair! And I love the fairytale braid. I'd love to learn to do it, though I doubt I could do it on myself!

February 6th, 2013, 09:59 PM
I like the fairytale braid even better than the waterfall. I think I accidentally did it the first time I tried the waterfall.

February 6th, 2013, 11:56 PM
Beautiful! :)

Ahhhh 'tis very pretty :)

February 7th, 2013, 02:24 AM
How lovely! I wish I had someone who was keen to come and braid my hair for me...it would certainly keep my arms from getting so tired!

February 7th, 2013, 05:24 AM
Beautiful hair! Love all the braids too!

February 7th, 2013, 08:05 AM
So Beautiful!!!

February 7th, 2013, 08:05 AM
Wow! They're all beautiful! My favorite is probably the 5-strand braid since I'm a sucker for braids with more strands xD

You're just so pretty and your hair is gorgeous!

Thanks for sharing :)

Your hair looks fan-super-tastic! (Sigh - why oh why can't I have STRAIGHT hair?!!)
Because God/genes/... decided you should have pretty wavy hair? :)

Thank you everyone for the compliments, it's really nice to read all of this after being so ill for so long already. It's a very nice pick me up!

All the braids look beautiful. My favorite is the French Braid mainly because that is one that I can do. Love all of them though.

I'll bet he had a wonderful time doing those braids - it's not that often that one has a chance to play with lovely hair like yours. :)

Be well!

February 8th, 2013, 06:49 PM
What nice hair! And how nice to have someone come and braid it. I love it!

February 9th, 2013, 02:54 AM
You really have lovely hair.

You also cleared up something for me... in my ignorance, I believed that the fairytale and waterfall were two names for the same braid. I have now watched the fairytale braid video and see the difference. Thank you!

February 9th, 2013, 07:24 AM
Your hair is beautiful and your braids are stunning. I hope you feel better soon:)

February 9th, 2013, 08:04 AM
Your hair looks great.

Your hair is so beautiful, I love you’re hemline aswell!!

January 20th, 2018, 05:24 AM
Lovely braids. That fairy tale braid reminds me a lot of a waterfall braid. I think it's a version of it :)

January 20th, 2018, 04:12 PM
Your hair is perfection. Thanks for sharing. It sounds like such a fun and relaxing activity to have your hair done at home like that. :)
I especially love the waterfall braid, but the simple English braid is gorgeous too.

Your hair is so gorgeous! I am filled with envy
