Braiding my hair has always been something I've wanted to do but I never actually tried until recently. I always used to look at people on Youtube braiding and feel insanely jealous! With hairstyles, I just assumed it was something that I would find way too tricky to master. It was only this week I thought to myself; if I don't try, I won't learn! So learn was exactly what I did! Youtube is where I started but I bought a braiding book a couple of months ago too. I began with practising Dutch braids (my fave)! I didn't get it at all and got frustrated easily but thankfully I didn't give in. Practise really does make perfect because all of a sudden I got what I needed to do and then I was obsessed with braiding!
I didn't stop at Dutch braids though and now I've finally achieved the Fishtail plait! I absolutely love this style and I think it looks really intresting. I love the extra twist with the topsy tail above the Fishtail braid! If anyone would be intrested in learning this style I might post a photograph tutorial on the blog soon!
Do you love braiding your hair?
