I love this. It has such a casual, yet put together feel. If only I had one once of skill in doing hair…

Love it! I am no where near your skill, but you always inspire me to practice. The hardest part for me seems to be getting the hair to stay in place. How many fasteners, clips, pins, etc did you use?

Reply

Hair Romance September 2, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Thanks Gina! Try using a dry shampoo or texture spray to help your hair to hold in the braid. These products add some grip to your hair. I have only used 2 pins to hide the rest of my hair underneath, and I only use professional quality pins. They make a huge difference. Hope this helps!

Lily September 2, 2012 at 10:44 pm

It looks gorgeous! Is your hair the perfect lenght for this braid or do you have to hide the ends? I tried it but ended with a loner section hanging in the front :S

Reply

Hair Romance September 2, 2012 at 11:13 pm

Thanks Lily! My hair is past shoulder length. I’ve tucked the end of the braid underneath and pinned it up.

Lily September 3, 2012 at 3:24 am

Thank you. I see now, my hair is too long for this one.

Reply

Kimberly September 3, 2012 at 2:43 am

I see that you mentioned professional type of hair pins. What makes those different than the other pins? I wonder what I have! LOL

I so love braids. I’m glad to see you showing us more ways to use them.

Hi Kimberly!
Thank you! I’m loving this braid challenge – it’s pushing me to find new ways to do my hair.
Pro pins are stronger than the regular pins you find at the supermarket, pharmacy or drugstore. I wrote about the pins I use here – http://www.hairromance.com/2012/03/which-hair-pins-do-i-use.html

Amber September 13, 2012 at 7:50 am

Is your hair super thick or is it mostly big sections? Thansks!

Reply

Hair Romance September 13, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Hi Amber, it’s a bit of both. I have fairly thick hair but I also stretch out all my braids to make my hair look thicker.

Jessie Hamblen September 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm

I am loving all of these! Now that I donated 16″ my hair is finally short enough to do some of these styles! Might have to wake up early tomorrow to play ;)
