    Wow, HaMalka, very nice! Maybe to minimize the scrunching at the end to some extent, separate it into two (or more?) sections and just do a regular braid with the rest of the length for each section?

    I do not want to attempt style this on myself; while I'm fairly competent with braids, I think I'd get more tangles than I want to deal with in the process of trying to do this one, not to mention taking it out eventually.

    ETA: Hm, I just realized, I bet this style would be more difficult on curly hair with regards to tangles. Plus, maybe the weaving wouldn't show up as well either?

    Yes to tangles. I didn't undo the weaving carefully and I did get some tangles. Next time I'll un-weave step by step.

    Here my attempt on someone else. I have a hard enough time doing a french braid on myself I wasn't about to try this on me. I also didn't follow the tutorial, and instead went with doing a whole head.

    In progress:
    Wow, that's beautiful! Here's me practicing I'm not sure if my shorter layers are ready for this style..

    That's gorgeous! I don't know if I can do that on myself though. I might need to find a guinea pig.

    HaMalka, that's some weave!

    giraff, practice makes perfect, you've made a great start!!! Once braids on yourself are "in your fingers", there will be no stopping you!

    Nicely done everyone!
    I finally got around to attempting this myself and after struggling with separating sections on the first version (hello knee length hair!) I went with the second version and did a creditable weave, but it didn't photo well. *sigh* I bet if I did it on my right side where I have more silvers that would give me the color variation needed to see the different sections, but I'm not as good at working on that side as on the left. Photos next time I do a photo transfer off the real camera.

    Slowly starting to get a grip of it now! Next step is to include it in a proper updo.

    I love how this looks on everyone who's attempted it!

    I'm a bit afraid to try it myself. The only braid I can do is dutch and even that can be a struggle at times. I'll continue to admire from afar

    Thank you! It took some practicing, but I think it looks a lot better now!
