Double Braids

I‘ve been growing out my hair for quite some time now. I love long hair. I plan on keeping it until it no longer looks appropriate on my aging body and face. For now, it stays.

I like long hair because I can tie it back easily off my face. That’s pretty much how I always wear my hair.

I’m tired of the same old ponytail. So the other day while perusing one of the blogs I follow, I came across this pretty updo. You can check it out here.

I’m not very good at french braiding my own hair. So I opted to try it out on Angel # 2. You know, to get some practice in. She was a willing participant.

On a side note…I used to always have the Angels play spa with me. It was my clever way of having them brush my hair, massage me and pretend to do my nails and make-up. Not anymore. The little Devils have discovered how nice it is to be pampered. Guess who’s the spa lady now? That’s right – ME!

Anyhow, back to my hair…so as I was playing spa with Angel # 2, I double braided her hair. She wanted a bow – so I added this cute little accessory.

Angel # 2 and her pretty hair.

A couple of days later, I decided to give it a go on my head. It’s best to have “dirty” hair people. Don’t judge. Day old hair or 2 day old hair is best for any updo. For some reason, I got lucky. Not only did I manage to successfully braid both sides of my head, I didn’t even get a cramp in my arms.

The look garnered me a lot of compliments so I thought I’d share it with you. I’m not sure if I will be able to repeat this do…it sure is pretty though!

French braided on both sides of head, wrap in bun at back.

The final look - need to photoshop my wrinkles.

Simply Yours,
