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 ;)

Hannah said...

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.

Cara 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"

photohogger said...

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 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!

Lenore said...

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!

Jess said...

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.

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 from Hola!design 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 :)

Dancing Branflake 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.

Pop Champagne 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!

Café Bellini said...

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!!!

Krystal said...

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

Debby 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 :)
