View Full Version : My french braid!

August 20th, 2010, 08:07 PM
So for the past few months i've been practising french braids - and today I figured out a new technique to keep my braids in (it's probably not very mind-boggling to figure out!)

I pull my hair UP instead of back - it makes the braid last longer :)

Here we are -


and from the back :)


Just thought i'd share :) :) :cheese:

Wait wait, french braid lasting longer? Please explain a little bit more! :o pulling your hair up? when? when sectioning?

Love it!!! wish I could braid like that.

Haha - when I french braid, I usually pull it downwards, as in, the sections are pointing downards, towards my neck. In this one, when I got the first little section, I pulled it straight across the top of my head to meet the other side - here's a little diagram! (hehe)


Does that make sense? :) hope i helped.

Ohhh! Sure it makes a lot of sense! Thanks so much Barniie! I'll be shipping a box of chocolates if I pull such a nice and stylish French braid as yours!

Such a pretty color you have there girl! Love the diagram, I still cant French braid but maybe trying the horizontal cross might help? Looks great on you!
