i'm totally sold on braids! they look so beautiful and can look polished or hippie-chic or fairytale depending on how they're done. i chose a high bun for my wedding, but if i was getting married again (to my husband, of course) i'd probably opt for some kind of braid. what about you? what hairstyle are you going for?
or you can just watch this video to see how to do the braid in the first photo:
UPDATE: my mom was inspired by this post. she watched the video and tried to make the braid. what a great first attempt! what do you think?
