Inspiration Friday: Braids

I’ve really been into braids lately & lucky for me there seems to be tons of ideas floating around on different ways to do them. Here are some of my fave’s:

sooo pretty {Style Me Pretty}

Ok, so not  braid, but I love to combine this WITH braiding [see below] {Makeup by Tiffany D}
No, I am not going to try and start pretending I know anything about hair! But I do want to share how I usually use these inspirations…
braid + poof + high pony {my “poof” needs some work lol} o and I’m not trying to look artsy here – it’s harder than I thought to photograph yourself in the mirror!

If I don’t do a high pony, I love doing a low side pony or messy bun. As I was doing this one I got to thinking one of Kasey‘s crocheted flower hair clips would look awesome with this style… but I don’t have one yet, so I had to settle for what I could find 😛

  1. Super cute!  I think braids are beautiful, especially in the summer time.  I just wish I had the eye/hand coordination to actually do my own hair!  If only I had a personal stylist 😉

  2. Thanks for the mention! If you want a flower hair clip as a prop for photos I'm sure we can work a trade out 🙂

  3. I love braids! So convenient and yet can be so classy! Have you ever tried a fishtail braid? I still need some practice though. Love your blog! 

  4. umm you totally rocked this braid and have now inspired me to  something fun like this with mine!
