How did they make this braid? I'd like to try it later when my hair is longer. I like the randomness of it.

Well, I could be wrong, but it looks like a three-strand braid...you'll notice that one piece that is braided in eventually just gets wrapped around the other two. As for the other two...I'm not sure.

I was initially a bit freaked out by her eyebrows, though.

Wow... how can it look like I asked my little brother to braid my hair and very cool at the same time? :confused:

Basically, it was an uneven braid on fairytail ends in which whoever braided it messed it up and crossed over the wrong strand once or twice. It makes it look casual, like you did it with your eyes closed while you were half asleep.

Wow, I like this braid. Her eyebrows look weird, too.:p

To me it looked like they did a normal braid and left a long strand out and then wrapped that around the normal braid. Eyebrows WOW thats all i can say about that one.

I had to go back and look at her eyebrows, I was concentrating on the braid. Yes, definately wierd.
That looks like the kind of braid my eight year old daughter does when she drops a strand from time to time and misses out a cross over.

It looks cool and casual on the model, on me it would look like I did it half asleep.

I think so too, it shouldn't be that hard to get a similar finish. Maybe I'm alittle freakish but I like it, both the braid and eyebrows!

I think it's just an English braid, but the sections of hair aren't equally thick. Also the braider seems to have crossed the wrong section once or twice. Maybe it's also been made "pouffy", meaning. You finish the braid and then pull at it so that it becomes more loose and individual strands come out.

I tried. Do you think it looks similar? Sorry about the pic quality.

1. Divide hair into 3 sections just like a regular English braid. (I will call each section a, b and c.)
2. Braid a and b just like a regular English braid.
3. Braid c after wrapping around a & b.
4. Repeat the step 2 & 3.

Not sure about my English, though. ???
