Braids on the Brain

Hair help - I need some. So, that's what we're talking about today for...

Go link up with Michele here.

Ok, back to the hair talk. I'm feeling braids right now. Roommate and I saw a girl at ACL with a beautiful fish tail thing happening (wanted to snap a photo but felt like a total creeper) and I've had braids on the brain ever since.

It was something like this:

We've now experimented a bit with the fish tail and it's happening soon. 

I also love this:

...but the smooth, straight, annoying white girl hair that's attached to my head doesn't like to wave. I need a beach/surf spray. Any recommendations?

This seems a pretty idiot proof (sorry so huge, can't figure out the deal with the jpeg):

Funny thing though, I've never been a french braiding whiz. Damn.

The chances of me mastering this are slim to none. But I LOVE: 

Oh dream hair, how I love you. I'm bad at hair, always have been. I'm going to work on this. I'm going to add "get good at hair" to my before-the-end-of-the-year to do list. That'll be right up there with "do some kind of charity" and "get skinny again". The hair thing might just be the easiest!


  1. hey lady - i can do any/all of that to your hair tonight. I even have some stuff we can put into your hair to make it hold the braids!


  2. Your pins make me miss long hair! It' so easy to take care of short but I sure to miss the pretty braids and curls!

    Love your blog... I'm now following :)

  3. Ive always been bad at hair too.. Until this year. The braids inspired me too! Good luck.

  4. I would love to master the fish tail! I love the way it looks!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
