"A girl without braids is like a city without bridges." - Roman Payne, from his novel, Rooftop Soliloquy
So I started joining the June Daily Braid Challenge 2014 on Instagram c/o @braidsforgirls. It's a picture challenge of everyday picture of braids per day for a Month. It's on 17th day today and I only have a few entries because I don't have a model to do it with. I can only try some of the braids on myself.

June Daily Braid Challenge 2014
My first entry was for the Fishtail Braid Day 3.
The image was taken when I was 9 weeks pregnant with my twins. For me Fishtail Braid is the easiest of all the braids. For this kind of braid, you only need two strands over each other. You can also watch a tutorial from Bebexo one of my favorite girl who do amazing braids on herself.
These are the other design of fishtail braids that I made.
Model is Andy
Me, Myself and I.

One Sided Dutch Braid for me again (what's with the curly bangs? hehehe)

Multiple Dutch Braids for JC, one of my fave!
For Day 11 was the Infinity Braid. Luckily, I have a model to do the braids on. It's my cousin Vaneza who have long black hair. I can do infinity braid on my hair but it will be too short when it is done. I first watched the video tutorial here & step by step image here. (Sorry, I'm really lazy to do the instructions setp by step hehehe)
Day 12 Snake Braid
Me with Snake Braid
Day 13 Updo
A little bit messy, this was my first try on my hair
Next is Day 14 for Ladder Braid. This one I made it on my hair. It's really easy. I also watched the tutorial from Bebexo.
For Day 15, Accessorised Braid. This is my original design. I just come up with it with inspiration from Pinterest images. :) Girls can wear the hairstyle on a wedding as a flower girl. I made a normal crown braid. And instead of having a third strand, I used my flower headband as the last strand for the braid. And ,my model by the way is 9 year old Mona, cousin of my bf.
Day 16 Four Strand Braid
Four Strand Snake Braid
Unique Four Strand Braid
Day 22 Basket Weave
11 Strand Basket Interwoven Braid
Day 26 Braided Ponytail
Again, it's a bit messy :)
There are a lot of braids that I haven't done yet on June Daily Braid Challenge 2014. I hope to make more braids in the future! Thank's for viewing my long post.
'Till next braid!
