Hey babes. This hairstyle was fun one that I did on my friend Sarah this Summer. The fun thing about it was that it was very experimental and different than any other hairstyles I have done in the past. The hairstyle reminded me of something a female knight might have rocked back in the royalty days, maybe slaying dragons or freeing slaves or something.
Or maybe some kind of tribal style? I dunno. What do you think when you look at this hairdo?
I basically did 3 different french braids, one down each side, and one straight down the back. I secured the ends with clear elastics, and then I realized there was no where to tuck the ends into…..The braids were too tight and unforgiving.
This is the point in the creative process where my mind shifts to plan B…..Make it work.
I folded the very ends (tails!) under once and then used creatively placed bobby pins in neat rows to overlap and secure the ends of the braids against the head in no particular order….I just sort of criss-crossed em.
The finished product was a tightly braided maze of braids that looked cool because of her stark ombre, with bobby pins as function AND fashion. (I am embracing this trend.)
Sarah promptly looked in the mirror and told me to please start over because she felt like a weird pin head:) Obvies not the hair-do for those with small head complexes. So I took it all out and braided a bunch of moss into her hair like a mohawk instead.
