looks great!:) If you want the tassel shorter, simply braid more of your hair.

Your braiding skills are good! I think you have a very healthy tassel.
If you want it shorter you have to just keep braiding. Do you have it
long because one or more of the hair strands gets to short? Or, is
it just hard to reach?

You're on a roll!

What is it you don't like about your tassel? It looks good to me . . . On thing to try is to scrunch all the layers of your hair-elastic together, so they touch or overlap and don't zigzag up your braid. But that comes with practice.

Something I do is to braid as far down as I can, and then put the elastic a few rounds up from the end of the braid. Next, I scrunch the elastic down a bit, then un-braid all the hair below it and comb the tassel out. Then I spritz it with a little anti-frizz spray (mostly water, tiny amount of conditioner).

Hey, that's a very good job as well.

Oh yes, you have the hang of it. A herrinbone braid would look great too and they are easy just;

1) split hair into two pieces, at nape of neck.
2) bring a small section from outside of one and take it to the middle of opposite strand
3) repeat on with other other side and continue until all hair is braided, make sure to keep it pretty tight.
