Unique Lace Braid

No video needed for this lovely braid!  I did this style a little less drastic than some I’ve seen.  Hairstyles are supposed to flatter your face and if your hairstyle isn’t helping your face shape or it enhances your face in all the wrong places, maybe it’s not a great style for you!  I modified this hairstyle to fit my face.  I started off with a regular french braid and stopped adding hair onto the bottom strand a few stitches back.  Then I continued down for another few stitches only adding hair to that top strand.  When I got far enough back I finished it off with a regular three strand braid.
Do what works for you!  Modify your hairstyles… ha ha I sound like Tony Horton on P90X!  Not every hairstyle looks good on every face shape.  So if you need to, modify it so that it’s flattering on you!

  • I love this hairstyle and I’ve tried to do something like this many times, but I’m fairly uncoordinated and my arms get in the way/don’t know where to go . . . Do you have any helpful tips, or is that something that gets better with more practice?

  • Abby, I have sent you a couple of emails and have not gotten a reply yet. My laptop was stolen and my 30 hairstyle in 30 days download was on my desktop. I have tried to click the link I recieved via email but it states that it is expired & to contact you via email. I only downloaded it once. Can you please help me access what I have purchased from you? It is a GREAT guide and I’d really like to use it again! Thanks, Kat Carter

  • Kat! I am so sorry! The ultimate hairstyle handbook email is impossible. I get hundreds of emails a day there. If you email me at myyellowsandbox @ gmail . Com with your email address associated with your PayPal account I can most definitely send you another link!

  • So cute!! And good advice! I laughed when you said you sound like Tony Horton! YOU DO! 😉
    I am going to try this hairstyle out and take your advice! I love all the hairstyle ideas you have!!
