    "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.

    My first entry was for the Fishtail Braid Day 3.

    Fishtail Braid

    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.

    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)

    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.
