'Ello, 'ello, 'ello!!!
Today i'm going to tell you a hairytale about my braids...
Once upon a time
this week- I started trying to find new ways to style my braids... As much as I like them hanging down on their own, my appetite for change got me thinking about buns... Thought a nice twisted bun would look good and I set about twisting, tying and frantically clipping... But alas no, it wasn't meant to be!!... My braids are just too long and thick. With each attempt I just looked a little more like I was growing a tumour on my head. So I changed tact, still in keeping with the updo theme and i'm quite happy with the results...
My day 1 attempt was a little sloppy (pic below)- I sorta just wanted all my hair to stay secure on the top of my head...
But day 2 I managed a nice structured twisted look, feels quite '80s, looks sorta like a hair hat, isn't heavy, takes about 3 minutes to do, doesn't pull and all it requires is a hairband and a few bobby pins to stay quite secure all day- long as you don't start dancin' to Whip My Hair!!...
And because this was a rather grumpy-faced tale, even for me...
