A huge accomplishment in my life--I can finally french braid my own hair! Woo! My arms get super tired doing it though :) Here's a picture:


Hopefully this works....I've never posted a picture before! Let me know what you think! :D

I must say, that's a damned nice braid. Even when my hair was long, I couldn't do it. I had to enlist the help of my mother.

I am impressed! I have never been able to French braid my own hair. Your braid looks so pretty!

March 8th, 2009, 11:20 PM
Congrats! Looks super neat and centered...your efforts have definitely paid off! :)

LOL THe main reason that I don't 'like' french braids is because I can't do them! :p

GREAT braid, it looks nice and neat...I'm jealous!

Looks really nice :)

Doing a french braid isn't all that difficult, but making it look good like yours is :)

March 8th, 2009, 11:24 PM
Thanks! It's definitely not easy, but I'm getting better at it. And as you can tell from the picture I can only do it when my hair is wet. It's easier to section that way :)

Nicely done!!!! Love the length of it. Really looks good. :)

Very nice! I was just thinking that it would be nice if I could french braid my own hair.... seeing that you learned may be the push i need to start practicing. :p

It looks beautiful, both hair and braid.

March 9th, 2009, 12:39 AM
Wow. That is simply beautiful. Good job!

March 9th, 2009, 12:42 AM
That is absolutely beautiful! Such a neat and tidy braid too!
I can make hair look like that - on someone else! :p Maybe I need to try mine wet also. Thanks for the idea!

Whoohoo! Yay bubbleguppy! It looks awesome! Hmm. I've got to help you resize and rotate those pictures next time it's post time! :D I'm amazed at the awesomeness.

It's perfection! Pretty hair color, too, and the braid shows it off nicely!

March 9th, 2009, 06:35 AM
Looks really neat. You did a great job!

March 9th, 2009, 07:14 AM
Congratulations, Bubbleguppy, on being able to braid your own hair, and what a beautiful braid too! Although I have worn a braid in mine, I needed someone else to do it for me. Perhaps I will learn in the future!

That looks so pretty and neat, I can't wait unitl my hair is long enough to try things like that.

March 9th, 2009, 07:24 AM

March 9th, 2009, 07:33 AM

Very nice braid!!! It does take a lot out of your arms!!!!

March 9th, 2009, 08:54 AM
Congrats! That's a really excellent-looking French braid, too!

Don't worry about the tired arms. It gets easier every time.

March 9th, 2009, 09:23 AM
a very nice and perfect french braid. I hope that one day my french braids will look as good as yours

March 9th, 2009, 09:32 AM
Lovely braid! You did an excellent job with it.

March 9th, 2009, 09:41 AM
Wow, gorgeous! It looks really neat and tidy

March 9th, 2009, 03:16 PM
What a beautiful braid!!! When my hair was long, I used to wear a braid every day. I can't wait till I can do that again -- hopefully mine will be as fabulous as yours!

March 9th, 2009, 03:23 PM
Holy smoke that is a BEAUTIFUL braid!!!

I can't even do that! :D Great job!!! :cheese:

March 9th, 2009, 03:31 PM
Very nice braid!
I am a braid lover. Gotta stop myself from wearing a braid everyday cause I am afraid others would think I look plain or childish. But braids are so easy and more comfortable for my hair than a bun.

March 9th, 2009, 03:35 PM
very nice braid and I love the colour too, I can braid my hair but not as good as that lol

March 9th, 2009, 04:09 PM
Good job!! The rubbery-arm bit will fade, given time and practice.

March 9th, 2009, 05:16 PM
It looks wonderful!! Congratulations on reaching a milestone!! :D :beerchug:

March 9th, 2009, 07:18 PM
Thank you! And thank you everyone for all your nice comments :D Definitely makes me want to try out more stuff! :)

Your French braid looks great, Bubbleguppy! Well done. :flowers: I can definitely relate to your sense of achievement, having finally managed to do this not so long ago myself! :P

March 10th, 2009, 04:03 AM

March 10th, 2009, 04:13 AM
