It's time for a style for June 2013! This month's style is:

Combination braids!

It is all about combining two braids into one, like having two dutch braids that you eventually join together. Let's see how you can incorporate combination braids into a style! :D

Those are fantastic, MaRo! Personally, I think they do count as combination braids.

Also, will post a picture of my combination half-up after resizing.

I know this doesn't really count, but here's a Hawser braid, which is technically a combination of two rope braids.

Such beautiful and thick braids guys!!! :D

If it counts, here is a cable braid I did (two hawser braids roped together)

This was taken after I wore it all day, sadly I don't have a better picture

I always thought a cable braid was a hybrid of a fishtail/normal braid, but either way it looks great!

Just three braids. One of them has a strand of beads braided into it.

How did you make that rope braid?!

It looks great on you, but it probably wouldn't show up on my hair.

Thank you, Sharysa. It's been so long, I don't remember the specifics, but I believe I made 14 micro braids in my hair, divided them in half and then started doing a french rope. I will have to revisit it to see if I can give better instructions:)

Thanks for the guidelines! However you did it, it looks awesome.

Thanks! In some lights the top looks all white ... that's a bit scary though

Here's mine, though you can't see the combined bit too well.

Years (many) ago I did Mrs Merlin's hair into three french braids which went into a bun at her nape. It looked good but required far more time to achieve than her patience for a repeat performance when I had a camera allowed!

Here's a shot of my badly-done diagonal combination lace braids. It's always one side that turns out looking better than the other.

And for the last day of June, here's half-up three-strand twists into a braid.
