i have a love/hate relationship with braiding. yes as a young basketball star i would spin my hair into a lovely frenchie to get it out of my eyes, but would this be my cutest style? nah… never. plus i was sweaty. this aside a long sweeping braid could not be prettier when done correctly. if it is not done correctly you can definitely look a little sister-wivesy or like you belong in avonlea with anne of green gables. keep it loose but in control and you should have a perfect twist to the day.
now for the no-ropes. with braids come strict rules:
1) If you put a bow on it, you have gone off the road of chic and driven right into the town of polygamy. Be careful of your accoutrements. Cute doesn’t mean cutesie.
2) So you gotta lot of hair, huh? Tame that shit. No one wants to get lost in a nest when sitting behind you on the train.
3) Over 15? Don’t do two. DO NOT DO TWO! That means you old lady who works out next to me at the gym. You look silly.
