The lady in braids



My hair is long now!
Long enough to make braids at least.
My mum always wanted to make these at me when I was a teenager and I hated it, I thought I looked so geeky. Mum is coming here next week and is thrilled about being able to braid my hair again.

Update: Here is a tutorial I found, I hope it's helpful (my only tip is to do it without looking in a mirror, but I guess some practise on someone else is best to start with).

  1. This looks great! It's so different from your regular lovely hairstyle; you can really change your look with just a simple braid. Terrific!

  9. I love this, the braid, the color. You look young and fresh, I don't 'get' the geeky thing. Besides, nothing wrong with a young fresh geek.

  17. Hehe what a cute post. Made me smile. My mum loved my long hair too, she was heartbreaked when i cut them short! :)

  18. Looks lovely! I'd like to French braid my hair, but it's so damn slick it is hard. And then it just doesn't keep unless I throw tons of hairspray on it (and not even then). So I just keep admiring those who can have braids like this... :)

  19. oh sandra it looks amazing. i dreamed of braids my whole life and used to wear a winter hat with long strings (that tied) around the house all year round, so i could "pretend" i had braids. this is just lovely. my hair is so fine it doesn't do well to stay up in anything it seems.

    Wow, so pretty! It looks hard to do?? I just wanted to write a quick comment and send some love from South Korea. I'm an ex-pat from the U.S. living and teaching here and I simply LOVE following your blog. Your photos are an inspiration. Thank you Sandra!

  23. I love French braids! You know when I was a teenager (in the 80s) these were becoming really trendy and I was the only one in my school who could do it so I had all the snobby cheerleaders and popular girls being all nice to me in hopes I would do their hair. I did it...but looking back I wish I didn't. They were bitches and I was a nerd. My braids were too good for them LOL x

  25. I always wanted my mum to make me braids, but she didn't do it :(
    So it was the opposite around.
    Yours looks beautiful!

  26. Your hair is lovely. It's woven.

    I used to love combing and brushing my daughter's hair. It was therapeutic for both of us. I hope you and your mom have at least one braiding session while she visits. :D

  28. vad fint! mitt hår är också så långt nu å jag flätar det mest hela tiden, det är ett mjukare sätt att få bort det än svans. att inte titta i spegeln är det enklaste sättet:)

  29. Ich schreib jetzt auf deutsch, denn das kannst du ja jetzt! :-)
    Sieht sehr schön aus und was mir auch super gefällt: das ist deine Naturhaarfarbe, oder? Die ist toll.
