I did this on a whim and since Sarah has such beautiful, long, perfect hair it was just begging me to play with it. The top braid is a waterfall braid and the bottom is a regular french braid. I am thinking about doing a video on this but I haven’t decided if I should yet. I hope to try out some more hairstyles on her that require long hair. I don’t think there’s a more gorgeous set of locks.
Then bask in the sunlight.
I have a thing for messy do’s. You know those pictures of models with hair in a disheveled mess of tangles and fly aways? That is my favorite. I purposely don’t comb through every strand of hair when I style it. I pull out hairs when I am done and hairspray it like that. It makes it unique; hurried and carefree.
How was your weekend?
My family is home from England for two whole months. I think I am in summer heaven. I love when they’re here. It’s so fun being around family and it’s extra special when you only see them once a year.
Four Strand Braid is the next level up from a French Braid. It can be tricky but with a little practice, anyone can master it.
I decided to do this post using different colored ties because I thought it’d be easiest to see. Besides, I couldn’t find any ribbon, yarn, or even string and considered using belts before discovering the ties hanging lazily in the closet being unproductive.
It’s basically, over under over, under over under, etc. To make it a french braided look you just have to pull in strands of hair as you go. I hope you try this out. It reminded me of some kind of craft project from the 3rd grade. I am surprised I haven’t tried it sooner.
I saw a similar ‘do on pinterest and wanted to try it. If I had extensions I would pack them on the top and make the braid across the front super huge but for now I’ll just tug the hair out to make the braid bigger. The last pic is what I got the first time I tried it. I think it still works but the braid definitely needs to be pinned down.
Super messy, super random. Perfect farm girl style. Let’s go haul some hay.
I pinned this style two different ways when I was trying it out. Once I pulled the tails under the french braid and pinned and the other way I pulled the tails over the top and pinned. I believe the first picture shows the braid pulled over the top and the third pictures shows it pulled under. Either way works and just depends on your preference. I also didn’t part my hair at all so that created a more disheveled separation between the two french braids.
