Romantic Braids

I have a "full head of hair"... as a child my dad used to braid it daily and I hated it, because I wanted my hair to feel free ...That feeling stayed with me, until now! I love to let my hair loose, but lately I am inspired by side braids...I think it's so romantically stylish!

Whats your hair like? How do you wear it?

Already Thursday...One more day:)

Love,
xoxoxo

That's one of the prettiest braids I've ever seen! My hair is long-ish and blonde and wavy, and it's been thick my whole life, but it gets less and less thick the older I get and the more damage I do to it. :( I think I've officially decided to stop with the highlights, so maybe that will help restores it's healthiness!

Ugh I remember my mother pulling at my hair every morning - tight ponytails, no volume whatsoever... thank goodness those days are over!

I love braids - I had my Dad do them as a kid too. He was terrible at it, but I loved it. Now I have a bob, which is much more practical for hot weather but I do occasionally long for braids and buns and lovely things you can do with long hair.

Biana said...

lol, my dad was the one to braid my hair too when I was a child :) My hair is a bit wavy and a bit thick. It's a disaster sometimes ;)

Oh, love the hair...I've just started braiding my hair. :)

Kristina said...

i have fine thin hair :o( ... trying my hardest to grow it long! .. right now i don't touch it with any heat, it either air dries or up in a pony-tail ... in the summer i'll do pigtail braids or braid the front of it to a ponytail ...

jeal over ur thick head of hair!!! .. one thing that stinks with my hair - i look rediculous in hats, i look BALD! - hahaha - but i wear them anyway .. :o)

I had long hair until recently but horrible at styling so just a couple of months ago I cut it just below the ears and it feels wonderfully free:)
Have a great day!

I love braids, particularly wispy soft, romantic braids.

My hair is mid-length and my bangs are under my chin...I'm thinking of getting it cut to add some bangs. Still undecided.

I love braids. I wish I could braid better because I think it's such a quick fix when you are having a bad hair day! Hope you are having a lovely day!

Couture Carrie said...

Oh I just love braids, especially messy fishtail ones... perfect for my long hair in the summer!

I try and I try to get a beautiful braid in my hair, but my thick, coarse hair just sticks out all over the place. Plus, I just am not very good at doing braids on my own head! It would be great if I could this summer though.

Lilacandgrey said...

My hair is the longest it's ever been (hits the middle of my back) and I LOVE IT! It used to be curly, but now it kinda looks like I slept in braids...so I basically play off of that...I will french braid the sides and leave the rest down or pull it into a low ponytail...
I love romantic braids, its a very summery look ;)

PS. have you seen cupcakes and cashmere's "how to's" she has a great "braid edition"

Love it - looks so effortless yet clean.
I used to wear braids all the time as a kid as well :)

I've added new buttons to my sites! Yay!

Polly Rowan said...

I have a "full head of hair" too, haha. It's blonde and long and thick and I like it in the summer because the sun bleaches it naturally and makes it have really light streaks in it. So I never have had to dye it or have highlights.
I wear it down or in a ponytail or a bun with a braid along one side like in the picture. My hair looks quite similar to that actually, but maybe a little lighter :) xx

Keith said...

That is so beautiful. I love braids. That's one of the best I've ever seen.

Would you like to exchange links?

Hey lady! I love the idea of braids. I have really long hair now halfway down my back & I always braid it at night in two picktails so it stays straight when I straighten it & then gets the waves from the hair-do! hehe!

I love braids but my hair is so thin that it really only works if i don't wash my hair that day (which then makes my roots look dirty!). Oh the vicious cycle...so pretty though!

I think side braids are absolutely gorgeous! And I'm so jealous that I can't wear them :( My hair is just too thin to pull it off. Ughhh.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Ugh I wish I was better at braiding! I want to rock side braids but I'm horrible at doing them =-( Makes me sad.

Monica Aguinaga said...

I love braids...I like to wear my hair in ponytails during the summer,it's too hat to let it down!

Edana said...

I always had full control of my hair. I dyed it green when I was 15 (and then magenta in college). Last summer I chopped it off, boy-short, and I've been letting it grow since then. People tell me I'm crazy because I won't cut it because I want super long hair when I get married so I can have an awesome bridal style, but I think I want something like these braids and they're not gonna work with shoulder-length hair! Soooo pretty and romantic :)

Tiffany Kadani said...

I love wearing braids to bed with semi damp hair and waking up with soft waves.

Sara Szatmary said...

I ADORE those braids but my hair is so wild and curly that they never quite look that good. Sigh.

noone said...

I wish I can braid my hair properly but usually it frizzes for some reason! lol I was sick of my head full of hair a few days ago so I got a haircut, chopped about 3 inches off and now I feel like my powers are gone lol. who knew 3 inches could make that big of a difference!

C'est La Vie said...

i love braids, i had them in yesterday just like this. i do one on each side and bundle it together in the back. so comfy

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, I have the same memories. Morning brushing, my mum making 2 plaits, me screaming (she had 3 girls with long hair, so time was short). Now I love a pretty braid like the one in the picture. xoxo

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I do love braids. I never think of doing my hair this way..partly because it is hard to braid your own hair. But, it is a lovely style!

Aww thanks so much for your sweet message! It's so much fun getting comments and I so appreciate your support, you're the best! I'm amazed and impressed with what you've done, though! It was only a few weeks ago that you'd reached 100 and now...wow! How do you do that? You totally deserve it, you always have such interesting posts! Congrats!!!

k said...

very pretty! i've been experimenting with braids! lately though i just wear it up high in a bun with bangs :)

Anonymous said...

How pretty! I braid my daughter's hair in a lot of different styles. My hair? Wish it were thick... maybe in my next life!

Maria Ana said...

I have lots of hair too but I love a ponytail on me as it shows my bone structure :)

Ashleigh said...

I have long straight hair but have yet to master the chic braid look. I try and try but something always feels off about it! I have better luck with a high bun, it's my go-to for wash skip days :)

Elissa said...

I'm with ya! I have a full head of hair and am always struggling to find new things to do with it. Side braids might be just what I'm looking for!

Marcie said...

I just love this look. So romantic. I wish my hair was thicker.

xo marcie

Carrie said...

i love this. i definitely need to try this! i love to just braid my bangs to the side. And i usually wear my hair down in a messy beach waves:D

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

That's such a beautiful braid! I have curly hair that I blow dry straight every single day. But I'm going to let it go au naturale at the beach this weekend :)
