View Full Version : Sharing the way I love doing hair – lots of photos included long post…

Hi all, just thought i'd share the way i like to plat hair, I looooooove trying different styles of hair braids. This is not something I can do on my own hair but I find it very easy to do on my friends hair or on my daughter – however, my daughter is not a huge fan of having anything done to her hair, she really dosnt like it. I don’t even brush her hair anymore because she dosnt like it and so far shes lucky that her hair dosnt get tangled badly enough to feel the need for brushing it… I’m thankful I guess that she loves her long hair and she lets me plat it at night so she can have wavy hair the next day. I have to say with great pride that I LOVE my lil girls hair, its so pretty, she has so many natural colours of brown strands in her hair which makes it so special and fascinating to look at it . Her hair is down to her hips now so these photos are a bit old... its been a fair while since i had any chance of playing with her hair :(

.................. (i just had to edit this post because i reached my limit to how many photos i could add so the rest of the pictures will be added in the replies)

Two more hairstyles i got to do on her hair which was heaps of fun for me :D

This is the Mermaid braid I got to do on my beautiful friends hair - i LOVE LOVE her hair, its sooo easy to work with and because of her colour, you can see a lot more detail. I just wish i could see her a lot more often so i can try so many other braids

My friends hair had heaps of glitter and spray added to it because we were going out to an event and unlike me, they dont care about the damage that stuff do to their hair :( I'm just thankful enough that i had my chance to do this anyway :)

I'm not completly happy with the ammount of work in the detail on those hairstyles but time was short and it was my very first go as well. With more practice, i KNOW i can work some magic for sure :)

Question, is it ok if i make a seperate post and share some pictures of other braids i found on google which i would love to try but havent yet got a chance to? I hve a whole folder on my computer with many many different types of braids ideas

So, her fringe is past her chin at this point but because its annoying her, she lets me do this side plat to keep it out of her face

Sometimes she loves having a tinker bell bun which i have no picture of :( I love that bun but this is another type of bun she let me do once for a special school event - she was so glamorous that night, my lil princess :)

She is really cute and those braids are really nice. I love braiding people's hair, but I can't keep tension when I do buns on others, so bravo.

Those are some lovely styles--and your daughter has beautiful hair. I love that goldy brown color.

Gorgeous braids!

Beautiful plaits, I especially love the mermaid braid! :)

Just a tip, but if your daughter doesnt like to have her hair brushed with a normal comb, you can try with a tangle teeter? It is supposed to bee really good for kids, as it doesn't hurt at all, and detangle really fast. I think I saw a few youtube videos once. :)

Lovely styles! I really like the glittery mermaid braid :) Wish I had someone to practice on, almost everyone I know has short hair :(

Beautiful styles! Wish I had friends that could braid like that.

July 23rd, 2013, 12:13 PM
Wow, you have a lot of skill! I wish I could braid half as well. :)
