Everbody hated that hair. Personally, I loved it (I actually kind of liked the dress and makeup too).

Anyways, I love braiding hair. Great topic!

I have a French braid today. Marvelous for keeping your hair out of the way, yet still looking interesting.

It took me ages to learn to do it on my own hair. I've been able to French Braid for other people since I was about 12, but I only just recently got to where I could do a nice French braid on my own hair.

As a child thats how i went to school, braids and cow plaits as we called them(chunky parts of hair plaited). I braid my daughters hair each week, as its so much easier in the mornings to get her ready for school. She didnt like it at first, but has grown so used to it now. I can easily do really nice styles on other peoples heads, but cannot manage to do my own. I used to braid my hair (two french plaits) each night before i went to bed, to minimise the tangles in the morning and gauranteed, when i looked in the mirror one side would be lopsided, with lumps and bumps on my head and the other side would be perfect - genius

This is a stunning two-strand braid and is a great way to learn the concept of French braiding before tackling three strands.

1. Divide a small section of hair where you want the braid to start (usually at the hairline at the front of the head or just behind your bangs if you have them) into two even sections.
2. Comb each section smooth.
3. Cross the right hand section over the left section.
4. Pull the sections away from each other to tighten the plait.
5. Using the pointed end of a rat tail comb, lift a small section of hair on the right by drawing a line against the scalp from the hairline to the middle of the braid about a half inch to an inch beneath the first plait, depending on the thickness of your hair and how woven you want it to look (more strands create a more woven appearance).
6. Add the new section of hair to the existing section on the right and then cross it over the left section; tighten the plait.
7. Again using the handle of a rat tail comb, lift a small section of hair on the left by drawing a line against the scalp from the hairline to the middle of the braid even with the section you just lifted from the right, add this hair to the existing section on the left and then cross it over the right section.
8. Continue the process alternating right and left sections, tightening each plait as you make it, until you reach the hairline at the nape of the neck.
9. Secure the remaining hair with a hair-safe ponytail holder. You can then let the remaining hair hang free or weave a standard English braid to the ends.

Tips: For a different look, cross the sections of hair under each other instead of over. Keeping your hands close to the head will create a tighter braid, holding your hands away from the head will create a looser, more drapey braid.

I love my hair in french braids, makes me feel seven again.
It's like wearing heels, you automatically change
in heels you get all sexed up
and in braids i feel like playing hide&goseek and i feel more free spirited
so yes for the braids!

I love this thread! I can't really braid my hair because it is soooo thick, but I still like the look.

Here's my little contribution. I'm not a big fan of JLO but I think she looks really cute in that pic with her hair braided like that...Actually, I'd like to be able to do the same but I'm so clumsy with my hair

I once had my aunt do corn-rows on me, they looked cute... but the hair kept coming out and soon they were rather messy.

^ I know what you mean, I had cornrows done too but it's a style that you can't keep for a long time. It has to be touched up every other day if you want to keep it neat.

It looks as if she's taken a single long braid, and just pulled it around her head.
Heidi did exactly the same, but with two at each side, joined together at the top.
Some very cool fish-something braids... my favourite type, next to French.
