French braid madness! MADNESS I TELL YOU!!!

My hair is finally getting long enough to braid! I'm so excited. I've been wearing it in messy french braid pigtails or variations thereof for the past several weeks, and I'm so pleased with it and with myself.

I'm practically smug with hair awesomeness.

Let me share with you.

really messy french braid pigtails:

One smug and satisfied long-hair-haver:


See, I told you I was smug. Can't you just see the smugness radiating from my scalp?

I think I'm going to try this maiden braid tutorial next!

Do any of you have favorite hairstyles, or find yourself wearing a fave hairstyle for weeks on end?

I have spent my whole life having feet for hands when it comes to doing hair. Alas, when I decided to grow my hair out again, I promised myself I would learn to do some ACTUAL hairstyles. I've got a little time yet, but I am bookmarking this maiden braid tutorial. So cute! And yours looks nice too!

I love messy do's, but don't go showing me beautiful up do's I've just had my hair cut short today :(
I love french plaits, my Dad used to do mine as Mum couldn't get her head around how to do them ~ bless her.

My hair only has one style! Lol short!! If I had thicker hair maybe I'd keep it longer...but I don't so I wont!

Love yours though.

Blogger keeps eating my long and well-thought-out-response-comments! I'm sorry everyone. Thank you all for your kind words! They have penetrated my smugness and made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

I love your hair like that! It looks soooo pretty! Braids in general are so simple and pretty. Seeing your hair in the maiden braid would be AMAZING!! I just wear my hair out and do nothing to it because I'm awfully lazy, that must change! :)

I love french braids, and the french braid pigtails looks so gorgeous on you. Just adorable!

Allison said...

your hair looks great like that! I am officially jealous. My hair is so fine and thing that any braid I attempt just looks sad. Or maybe it is because I don't really know how to braid? Hmmm.

Woah it does look like a feat so you have every right, every right i tell you, to be smug!
