In which I talk about hair again

leave a comment »

I’m baaaack and yes, I’m talking about hair again.  You see, Dear Readers, when I see a lovely pic on the interwebs I must right click and save.  Since I haven’t updated in a long time they’ve been amassing on my comp, so I spent a rainy Sunday making thematic posts about what I want to say to the wuhrld.

These are not to be confused with milkmaid braids or braided halos.  These are even less defined in scope than the aforementioned:  basically what I’m talking about here is a bun with a braid (or two) for decoration.

Some inspiration:

P.s. My “r” key no longer works and my “a” is sticky and it is massively slowing down my writing, Facebooking and other general time wasting (note to self: don’t pour Nyquil in an itty bitty medicine cup…over you keyboard).  I’m having to write this on Word and then cutting and pasting – giving my spellcheck a run for its money.

Xoxo.

Braided Halo

leave a comment »

Not to be confused with milkmaid braids, which are two braided pigtails wrapped up around the head like a sort of headband.  Braided halos (totes my own word for them) are braided right into the hair in a sort of modified French braid and are less defined in scope than the milkmaid.

Happy braiding!

Xoxo.

Milkmaid Braids

I’m kind of totally obsessed with milkmaid braids/braids of all kinds.  I’ve been totally hoarding pics I’ve saved from around the internet, so time to dump them on this here blarg.

Some inspiration:

 

 

There are so many variations on this, but these are the classic two braids over the head thang.
