Celebrity Braids

Braids are SO in right now.  French Braids, Dutch Braids, Fishtail Braids, Waterfall Braids, Waterfall Twists and Bohemian Twists.
Messy beach braids are everywhere.  The awesome thing about braids is they can be so casual and so formal.  Here are just a few pictures I grabbed from google images.
Messy.  Sometimes being perfect isn’t always best!

For this one you need super long hair.  At least that’s how it is with all the tutorials I’ve seen.
Remember, celebrities have extensions.

Yeah that’s a NORMAL braid.  Curl your hair, put it in a side braid and pull the braid loose!

This is a dutch braid, can you see how the braid is reversed?  You get this braiding the hair OVER each other instead of under.  Tutorial in the ebook 

French braid pulled loose

Yeah, she’s got extensions in.

See how this braid is different from Jennifer Anniston’s above?  All that’s different is that top piece wasn’t added on to.

Dutch braid.  Top piece not added on to.

Love the back on this one!  SUPER easy.  Similar tutorial in the ebook

She’s french braided the side over and then it looks like it’s transitioned into a fishtail

Anyway.  Get your braid on people!  If you don’t know how, buy the ebook at watch my tutorials.  It’s not as hard as it looks, I PROMISE.  If you can do it on other people but not yourself, PRACTICE on yourself.  While watching TV of course.  It’s the only way!

  1. Thanks for this hair post! I originally came to your blog for your hair ideas and would love to see more along these lines. THIS is the real meat of your blog!

  2. gorgeous. I do the side braid all the time…Totally unexpectedly, the boyfriend LOVES IT. I thought he’d think it was matronly or like I was in the Sound of Music or something…. Nope. he loves it.

  3. LOve all the braids!!!! SO I got the ebook (a while ago), but I don’t see any videos on there… can you please help me with this? did I miss something?

  4. I love adding braids to my hair. Sometimes when I don’t feel like fixing my hair I’ll throw in an itty bitty braid near the front of my hair. It adds just a little something special to make the ‘untouched hair” look intentional . Love your hair tutorials!!
