So I saw this and wanted to try it.

My hair is much much longer than hers, but this turned out really pretty!
The ribbon is black but for some reason looks blue? O.o

Awesome! That looks so great :D

Is it french or dutch? I suppose I should watch the video to find out :lol:

ETA: How the heck did you do that! Did you get someone to help? Or do you have four hands ;)

I'm horrible at recognizing hairstyles, but is it a boxbraid with the ribbon as two of the strands? edt: I'm wondering because it doesn't look like the video a lot :)

Looks very pretty at any rate. I've been putting off getting ribbons.. hmmm maybe I should :D

So beautiful!!!

And, I agree with Mirsha and Madora, your version looks different ( and waay prettier!)

That's so beautiful. I most certainly have to try it out sometime. Did you just hold the two ends in your teeth when you did it?

Very beautiful! It is also versatile, you could use different colors of ribbons to give it a different look.

I held it in my mouth and had my mom tie it off at the end :D

My hair is much thicker, we followed the video exactly.

Yes. I used black because it contrasts so well with my color.

The reason I did this braid today was to distract people from the oillyness of it. I just did an ACV rinse to fix that problem but the ends in that picture look all yucky :(

My mom used to do the same thing to my hair when I was younger :) She used much thinner ribbon, and would use three strands for each section of hair, and let the ribbon hang out a bit longer at the end, which was my favorite part haha ;)

Oh, so pretty! I want to try this when my hair grows. I love ribbons in a hair. (Actually I have already bought some nice ribbons that I can use later :o)

I have to remember to try braiding in scarves and ribbons more often :p. It looks beautiful! I have some ribbons that I either braid into my hair, or I weave them in later with either a large yarn needle or my scunci design weaver (same thing, but a bigger eye :))

I've never had any luck doing that >_< the needle always fights back or gets stuck!

Very pretty! You're certainly more coordinated than I am...I can't even manage a regular French braid on my own hair :)

It looks so pretty!! I wonder how come yours looks so much nicer even than the tutorial? I'm going to have to give this style a try sometime!

That looks great. I really want to try it but I seriously doubt that I'll be able to figure make it.
