I have slowly become a master!

I don’t know why I was ever so afraid of braiding!  Today I worked a bridal party with my girlfriend, Dusti. I was excited to test out my braiding on REAL hair for a change.  If you read my blog then you know that I have been practicing on a mannequin head as I was not very goo at braiding.  Well check these out!

This is the back view of the photo listed at the top.  She wanted it all swooped to the side.  She had enough hair for three people and I knew I wasn’t going to have time to curl the whole thing.  So I put on my brave face and did a side swooped french braid, then tucked half of the hair underneath to save some time!  The result was beautiful!

This was one of the JR. Bridesmaids…can you believe that hair color?!  Allllll natural! This braid started off as a french then became just a regular braid. Then I tucked it into the side of curls!

This one was my favorite of the day…although these are just regular braids and I never had any problems with them. She had thin hair so we added extensions to thicken it up a bit.  Makes the curls look fuller!


Over all it was a great group of girls to work with!  Now I’m ready to go back to bed! ;)

  • I think that all sounds great! You are going to want to get real hair though. You don’t want to mess around with synthetic hair for your wedding day. We can discuss all of this when we decide to book your trial! Looking forward to it!!

      I’m lovinggggg all of the braids!!
      I’m looking for a style PRETTY similar to the first one, but a french braid across part of my head into the back!
      My hair is pretty fine and I’m thinking extensions would definitely be needed as I’d like the curls to be super full and to last!!!
      I have tons of extensions and falls from shows that are not real hair, so they can’t be curled. What do you suggest?
