ten images of inspiration : braided.












This has been a season of fairytale-esque folky braids and I have been completely loving it. They are just so romantic and feminine- I could happily wear a different one every day.

  9. This is so fantastic! Did you ever notice how great the braids are at Free People? They even made a page of some fairly simple how-to's...

  12. i LOVE this blog, and this is a great post - however, i'm saddened by the lack of diversity in the photos. women of so many different cultures wear braids. and i'm sure your readership is much more diverse than the images you're posting. i have a giant afro and i love to wear braids:)

  18. The one on the red background is really original. My hair is still too short, and when i try to make a little braid it doesn't look this fairytale-like :)
