Me too! She was impressed with how much I knew about hair and different braids. She said she needed another person to help out at her booth. Granted, I'm good at braiding, but I'm nowhere near her level!

Wow that is a gorgeous crown braid! Plus I think your face paint looks awesome and really compliments the overall look you were going for.

It is Art, wearable Art - the braid, the face paint, and your own makeup. You must have felt so beautiful that day!
I hope you get the apprenticeship too!

Fantastic hairstyle!

I missed Bealtaine/May Day because of work, but tomorrow I'm going to go out to the park or beach for a while.

Oh, wow. Just amazing. I will never think about that. What a great hairstyle. Now it has to be my new challenge (even if it take years, lol).

It's really beautiful. I would so try this if I wasn't sure that I would fail miserably.

Stunning! Both the hair and the face paint - and the belly paint! Wonderful. :)

I don't have enough hair for a 5 strand braid. Even a 3 strand is thin.

Hope you get the apprenticeship. That would be so much fun to learn.

Thanks everyone for your kind words! I'm sending her some of my braiding examples (photos) today, so we'll see how it goes with my apprenticeship. Sadly, she more wants pics of braids I've done on other people's hair, not my own. Most of my pics are of my own head of hair. :)

Clearly you need to come visit me and I can be your hair model. I can't do fancy braids at all.
