long hair, bobby pins and braided updos

I have pretty long hair which, although I like it, tends to get in the way sometimes, and I'm constantly looking for new ways to tie it up. Buns are a favourite, but the 'do' I just keep coming back to is braids and plaits. Normal braids, fishtail braids and variations of these braids. I'm always on the hunt for new ideas so I thought I'd share my plaiting knowledge with you and maybe you can share yours with me if you know any I haven't mentioned!

If you'd like a tutorial fo any of them, let me know in the comments!

#1: Fishtail braid


#2: braided hairband


 #3: French braid into a bun

 #4 side braided-bun

 #5: wrap-around braid


It's really just a matter of finding nice ways to get my hair out of the road, especially for school on days I have PE and art and stuff because, to be honest, I think pony-tails and messy buns are getting a little over-done!

Oh, and before I go, happy Easter everyone! I'm off to get fat!

A parallel hairstyles approach is still followed for girls and women in modern hairstyles amazing hairstyle with a little untidy that confers a rock & roll look to your hair. curly hairstyles This curly hairstyles. style has gone through slight changes over the time. Unlikely to older styles.
