Hello everyone!

I Googled "French braid hairstyles" last night and found so many amazing ideas!
Here is my version from today of one of the hairstyles I saw.








And, as an added bonus, for all of Wimsey's fans after our last post~


(I took this after his last haircut.)

Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a great weekend!


P.S. These are pictures of flowers in my yard.

Wow... absolutely stunning!

Are the thin braids just wrapped around and pinned underneath? Very, very beautiful. :D

Thanks so much! Yes, I wrapped them around several times, criss-crossed them,
and pinned the ends underneath with bobby pins.

You are so clever! I love looking at your hairstyle posts. I'd love to be able to have a thick bun like yours...but then I'd have to drastically reassess my current simple goal of waist (I've seen your length shots lol!!)

Beautiful, as always.

Very pretty! One day maybe I'll be able to do my hair like it. :)

September 10th, 2011, 08:20 AM

I always look forward to your posts. Thank you SO much for sharing this with us.

So creative and beautiful!

September 10th, 2011, 11:08 AM
I LOVE that! :) I'm definitely have to try something like that myself sometime.

September 10th, 2011, 12:02 PM
Gorgeous as always!

Are those pretty claw clips, plus the bobby pins you secured the braids with, all that's holding the hair? If so, that is impressively gravity-defying. :D

I put my hair in a ponytail first before making the bun, and that always helps my hair stay up much better. The clips have something to anchor to~ this look stayed in place all day until late last night when I finally took it down.

I get so excited when I see a thread by you, you always have the most beautiful braids :) And your hair is amazing :D

September 11th, 2011, 12:11 AM
I agree.. I look forward to your posts!
This one looks like it stays in place perfectly all day.... and I love those!!!
I especially like the small accent braids.

September 12th, 2011, 03:52 PM
Lovely as always :)

September 12th, 2011, 04:53 PM
Always the most beautiful styles! Where do you get the time to manage all that hair into those incredible intricate do's?! :thud:

September 12th, 2011, 07:31 PM
While I find your hair and styles quite lovely, this is really more appropriate in a blog rather than the "Mane" Forum. Perhaps you will consider beginning one where people can admire your lovely hair styles?!

September 12th, 2011, 09:59 PM
I'm always amazed by your styles! You are for sure an inspiration to me! Do you do your hair yourself or does someone help you? If you do it yourself, you've got to have the most toned arms!! Thank you for all your posts!

September 13th, 2011, 02:25 AM
Wow, that's a really pretty and inventive hairstyle!

September 13th, 2011, 04:00 AM
wow - you are so talented!! May I ask, how long does it take to perform such a hairstyle? I think 3 hours wouldn't be enough for me!
And count me between the little Wimsey's fans!!!

September 13th, 2011, 04:18 AM
Really pretty .. your hair is lovely and Wimsey is cute!

September 13th, 2011, 04:35 AM
Wooww...I always look forward to your posts, and as always it is AMAZING :) (hair, flowers and pup :))

September 13th, 2011, 12:09 PM
It looks really nice, and I love your posts :D

You never fail to inspire me! Amazing hair and stunning flowers!

September 13th, 2011, 07:34 PM
You are just unbelievable. How do you do all these styles yourself? Amazing!
