When I was little, Braids & Bows quickly became one of my favorite books after having received it for Christmas one year. I would spend hours flipping through the pages trying to learn a new braid to make. I had two abrupt realizations– that I would never make it as a hair stylist and that I love hair that is braided in funky ways. What is probably twenty years later, I am still just as bad at braiding my own and other’s hair, but I can’t help trying to create awesome braids!
Here are six seemingly simple braids from Real Simple that you can use to twist and turn your hair in many ways! What is your favorite braid look? Is it the waterfall braid? Fishtail braid? Katniss Everdeen braid? Tell us in the comments below or on www.facebook.com/thesobremesa!
