Hi, guys! I just thought I'd post some pics of my latest hair taping attempt. I'm so thrilled to finally be able to do this style.

Plus, a french rope braid attempt. Soooo glad to finally have hair long enough to do some of these cool styles :)

Very nice! Love that colourful ribbon you used, now I want to try this!
Also, that rope braid looks so good, I know I couldn't do that, you did it so well!

Wow your french rope braid looks really good! I also love the color of the ribbon. Very pretty.

So pretty!!! I adore yoru french rope braid! I've been practising to do a french rope braid headband. Yours is way better than mine!

I am waiting for it too, but my hair is too short, still. Great job! I love the ribbon. And your haircolour! You are really good at hair taping.
And the french rope braid- masterpiece to me. I don't even dare to try... You are so talented braider!

How adorable. It really suits you :)

Very nice! I love the ribbon. It makes the look a lot cuter. And the french rope is very well done! I can't wear a french rope because it makes my hair look too thin (skinny braid syndrome), but you really pull it off nicely.

Well done!

Thanks everyone! I'm still getting the hang of keeping the ribbon smooth and even. Plus, my hair was very fuzzy when I did these looks. So many baby hairs! Ahhh, humidity :-)

I think using the colorful ribbon makes it seem more fun and playful.

Happy braiding!

Lovely french rope braid! I have managed rope braids a few times now, but I haven't tried the french braid variety.

The hair taping certainly looks cheerful! When I used to that, I just used plain old satin ribbons, no patterns or anything.

Nice! I would like to try also but it looks kind of tricky..

Check out Torrin's tutorial on YouTube...torrinpaige is her username...check out the video on Elizabethan Hair Taping...it's a really nice tutorial and is easy to understand. She makes the comment that you need waist length hair, but I got away with it just short of waist.

Cool taping and French rope braid (I didn't know they existed :o)!

It looks like we have about the same length hair, so as soon as I can find myself a large needle, I'm giving taping a try!

I'm green with envy, your rope braid is gorgeous. My hair just wont stay put like that, too slippery. Yours is just too lovely, definitely inspires me to battle with the slip once again.
