So As you thick haired folks may know, Sometimes it is tough finding a style that works for you and doesn't do something weird like tug on the hair near your ears or your temples when trying different hairstyles. I found this "style" which is more like common sense for me-- why didn't I think about this before? :rolleyes:

It is SOOO comfortable. Everytime I try any other type of braids they end up looking like tied logs or something but this is so comfortable and practical-- I even wore it to bed last night. I know I know I'm easily amused!! But, I found this and know I may wear my hair like this for a long time LOL! I call it my "Mists of Avalon" braids. I'm sure someone has come up with something similar. .but I just can't get over how much I like this style--
LOL. :D:inlove: Above was my first attempt, kinda messy-- but I still like it!

That is so cute! Your hair is very thick. One of those braids is thicker than my single braid!

Thank you ladies!!! Sometimes I get really frustrated because it is so thick. . I can't even do buns properly. I'm hoping when it gets longer I can sort of use the weight/thickness to my advantage.

Your braids will make excellent weapons once their longer. I have to be careful when flipping my braid back around people. And you can amaze people by getting all that hair to stay up with just one stick.:p Your 4 braids look a lot more comfortable than having just one or two. Especially for sleep.

Hehe!!! I've already flicked my df several times. . He said "that's a story you can tell your friends on LHC"-- he knows me well! :inlove:

Careful though you can also hurt yourself. Can't tell you how many times I've managed to whack myself in the face with a thick braid. And it hurts.

Wow! That looks great!!
And such thick shiny hair, beautiful.
It would really look pathetic if I'd do that with my hair, thin braids.

Those braids remind me of the beginning of the wrapped crown updo that MaidMarion uses. I think she buns each braid around the other. Amish hair pins?
It's nice to find a comfortable way to wear your hair. :)
