today i saw my superflat haired friend, and wrote her nickname (abreviated name) with braids: it's supposed to read "flor"

The Hairline Braided Face Frame/2 Strand Twist

Instructions:
Starting on the right side of your head section off a triangle portion of hair from your hairline approximately 3" from your temple. Clip off this section while you repeat the same process on the left side of your head.
Begin braiding on the right side. Divide the section of hair you begin working with into two equal strands.
Cross the right strand over the left.
Place both strands in the left hand with the index finger inbetween. Keep the back of your left hand against the head at all times.
Starting at the hairline and continuing up toward your left hand, pick up 1-2" sections of hair with your right hand.
Add this section to the right or bottom strand.
Place these sections in your right hand, with the index finger inbetween.
Twist the right hand conterclockwise (the right strand twists over the left strand).
Keep repeating Steps 4 - 8 picking up 1-2" sections of hair as you mode down your head. Continue until you reach the nape and have no more hair to pick up. Clip this section out of the way and work on the opposite side.

^ I really want to know how to do that too, I try it on my hair but the braid is so much smaller and thinner on me, maybe my hair is just too thin?

^ How much hair are you using for the braid? It could be that her hair is thicker, but there's also the possibility that you didn't use a thick enough amount of hair. Just my guess - it's hard to tell from the picture exactly how thick/thin her hair is.

Eimii - I can do my hair like this and mine isn't thick at all. I plait my fringe into it as Im growing out so its basically all the front of my hair. Just make sure you're taking hair from both sides of your head and not one then it should be plenty thick enough.

^ Yes, I think that's the problem. that I am not using enough hair from the other side and I think I need to use other hair apart from my fringe to make it thicker, I will try that and report back, thankyou!

I'm obsessed with braids.. there seems to be at least one small braid in my hair at all times!

2 years ago I tried out a Heidi braid for a Mardi Gras Ball.. but then again, my hair was MUCH longer, and I used about 50 bobby pins. Nowdays it looks much messier when I braid it (cause it's french across) but I don't mind.

I know this sounds so silly but is anyone able to explain how to do french braids on yourself. Just simple-ish instructions would be great?
