    The bottoms got rope braided and cinnabunned and pinned. They were small enough to stay with one bobby pin each. In the future I might divide the hair a little higher and make the rope braids bigger. Then I braided the top two sections and finished the same way as the tutorial.
    It's pretty clear I didn't use a comb to part haha. So maybe I'd do that next time. And I would probably put them higher since I don't like the feeling of my ends poking my neck.
    But all in all I like it.
    Nice! I actually like this more than the original style.

    I also tried this style about a year and a half ago. It would look better with a bit more thickness, but that's not going to happen, though I have gained a bit more length+kept getting rid of my thinned ends due to bleaching, so maybe now it will look different. Should try again.

    You've inspired me to give it a try.

    @AutobotsAttack: SO adorable! I'm totally doing it.

    So this time I tried to make them higher. BUT I made the rope braids bigger and the English braids smaller and I feel like it looks a little goofy. But then again it's out of the way and not pulling anywhere so it will work well for dinner and baths and bedtime.
    (Unless I get bored and change it. Which happens a lot.)

    Yeah. My hair compacts down tiny. Too bad, so sad! #pretendingitsfabulous

    Hehe, I could not get the coils to lay flat, they insisted on sliding behind each other.

    I did these buns as a half-up half-down hairstyle. Everyone I met asked if I had attached a hairpiece to my head! They didn’t believe that those buns were my own hair until I let them down

    Ooh, pretty style! Great pics everyone!
    I don't have the strength to do that much braiding at once, but I just had to stop by to say each of Torrin's English braids are thicker than my single English braid Though I did enjoy the contributions to the thread from my fellow puny-bunned longhairs
    Growing back to definite-calf length with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    LOL! Me too.

    Do I dare try this?

    Currently BSL in the back when stretched, and a couple inches shy of BSL in the front. Very basic 3a. No cones. No heat styling.

    I swear I did this in February, I just didn't get to uploading the pictures till now. But I tried this style with just one set of braids, to see if it worked, and it's pretty cool!
    My husband says it's fun-looking, but a little too weird to wear out in public. Sigh....
