    Everyone looks so lovely and elegant!

    Here's my attempt. I need to remember this for summer. I don't even have any pins in.

    I'm used to the amish wrapping their hair in a loose bun with a ponytail basethen covering it with a hairnet and pinning it down.

    Amish braids, take 2. (Please kindly engore the greasy roots.) This time I started with standard dutch braids. The first picture I took this morning, the second one I took at the end of the day. I'm amazed by how well it stood up.

    I stuck to the instructions for Amish braids rather than the Interlaced braids of which I am fond.


    Messy, but it held all day. And since I can Dutch braid, I think Interlaced braids win in the end.

    Mod hat off. Mod hat on. Don't make me wear the mod hat, it messes up my hair. *grin*

    These are gorgeous. Such a pity I am so challenged at braiding my own hair. All I regularly do are english braids.

    I tried this hairstyle today. It feels very solid and secure even though I only pinned the ends with a single bobby pin each, just to get it to stay since I'm not going anywhere and just wanted to see if I could do it. If I were going to wear this style out somewhere, I'd pin the ends differently or maybe even use clips to make sure it won't fall out. It definitely looks more intricate than it actually is. It seems to distribute the weight of the hair pretty evenly/comfortably.

    I wish I had more length once I got to the lacing part; I was only able to lace the braids twice, each one to the opposite side and then back to its starting side.
