Two questions:

Eagle eyed gals: I saw a photo, perhaps from the last year and a half, of a braid style that looked like the whole head was basket-weaved. I think it was from a runway show, not a magazine editorial, but i can't remember the source. I've scoured the net looking for it, but can't find it again. Help?
This one's for NYCers: I'm considering going to the braid bar at Bergdorf a few days before a coworker's wedding in the hamptons (it's a backyard wedding). has anyone been and can share their experience? do they have lookbooks so you can pick styles, or are you expected to show up with a photo?

No, not the mcqueen show... The photo I saw was an upstyle, it looked like the model had short enough hair that everything was tucked in the basketweave around her head.

i tried this one today!



it's really easy and it's very firm comparing to other braid hairstyles, so it can last longer.

^i'd say it's a waterfall braid, there are two versions to do it, i think in the picture it's the version from the first video, since it looks like the bottom sections are split and not completely dropped

Lately I've been obsessed with fishtail braid.

Thank you for posting the video in #356 Alvedansen!

I just tried it then, thinking it would be a complete and utter failure, but it was super easy and I absolutely love the result.

Until recently I was completely clueless about how to style my hair, the only updo I could do was just tie it up in a bun that was too tight and unflattering for my face, so instead I always wore it out. My hair is very thick and curly/wavy so this knotted style is perfect for me as it holds very well in the knots and the pins. It's also a lot easier than a French braid updo, which I still haven't quite mastered yet. I'm getting there though, with the help of this thread. My next attempt will be the figure 8 braid.

I'm so happy I can finally do something else with my hair! I went through a few of the girl's videos on her youtube channel and tried a few more simple updos/simple braided styles as well, I'm surprised how easy some of them are. This is great as I start work next year in the legal profession and I would feel more confident and it would be more professional if my hair was up away from my face so I'm very grateful for these new ideas!

^ I just watched that video and wow such a lovely updo. I'm going to try it tomorrow! I can't believe I've never thought to tie my hair into knots. It looks so easy!
