a girl without braids is like a city without bridges.

I am always fascinated by intricate hairstyles. Since I lack hair styling skills myself, I admire certain looks even more. Lately, I have been inspired by braids! They are such a gorgeous and versatile hair trend. I particularly love braided updos. I keep trying to create them, but without much luck.

So, while I hone my skills, here are some of the braided styles that are inspiring me the most.








What is your favourite kind of braided hairstyle?

Also - I just want to congratulate Erin Noie for winning the $50 Shop Credit from Treena Bean Boutique. Enjoy!

  14. I totally adore braids and want to try the braids crossing on top of my head it just doesn't look as natural like the gals above because of my slick hair..if that makes sense...I would have to do alot of teasing or something!
