Anyways..... I found all kinds of great hair ideas that use braids in one form or another:
From half up-dos:
To little braids incorporated into ponytails or buns:
To complicated braided masterpieces:
One place that I found a lot of awesome braids was the Pinterest boards for The Beauty Department. They have tons of great ideas for everything beauty related- not just braids!
One thing that I know I'll have to work on if I'm going to be trying these hairstyles is my perfectionism... I always hated it when my braids had lumps in them, or weren't straight, or when my "spit curls" (what my Gramps calls them) would spring out around my ears and neck... but these braids aren't meant to "perfect" and I'll work on remembering that.
I hope everybody's spring/ summer is going great and that you have lots of fun things planned! Be sure to check back tomorrow for Thrifted Thursday!!!
