I worked my way from my ear towards my forehead, my hair dresser cut layers in the front so I had to start there. It was really quick though

lostinemotion We just call them french braids Don't know why, though. Must be a Danish thing

The_Ida Lovely braid! I wish my hair was that long.

I still don't understand how you were able to do it though? Actually I've never really understood how people braid their hair like that.

After seeing Lauren Conrad with a side french bread that went across part of her forehead it looked super easy but I tried it and failed horribly. She must have had someone do it for her since it's incredibly difficult to do and keep tight.

i used to wear braids a lot when my hair was longer, but since i got layers it doesn't work any more. the braid will be very thin at the end and messed up now.

^^ That must have taken a lot of patience!
Even though I don't particularly like her, Lauren Conrad's hair looks super cute with braids.
