Braid Love

When I was little, I'd sit on the living-room floor, and my mom would French-braid my hair. It made my already huge head look enormous (an orange on a toothpick!), but I adored it anyway. So, recently, I was thrilled to discover the new Flickr group Braid Wednesday. How gorgeous are these women? Don't you want to wear braids again?


Pretty Little World said...

I'm always looking for cute ways to do braids that aren't too "little girl." Thanks for the great inspiration photos!

stacy said...

as we've already discussed our wee pee heads - i would have thought you'd be thrilled to have the braid add fullness and size ;)

The Lil Bee said...

I like braids, too. Sometimes I do one or two in my hair. The third photo down would be so pretty for a wedding:)

iheartkiwi said...

i totally agree with bee! the third photo would be amazing for wedding hair. still haven't decided what to do with mine... i just know there will be gardenias.

i can french braid other people's hair but can't do it on myself! must practice.

Gillian said...

You mean you have your own weatherstation? LOL
I thought your head to be of rather normal size, if that's any consolation. :)
Yes to braids, they are so handy and pretty. Especially in the hot weather!

TheBeautyFile said...

I was just telling my friend that when I was little, every Saturday night my parents went out for dinner & I always looked forward to three things: Lays potato chips, chocolate Haagen Daz (we weren't allowed sweets in my house) & getting my hair french braided by my talented babysitter! Not much has changed since- I would quite enjoy the same things right now!

I *Heart* You said...

uh, you know i am all over this!!! i love the second pic! i recently cut the hair so it would be perfect for me!

Joanna Goddard said...

aw, thebeautyfile, that is so sweet!

jordo said...

oh how i love this..but i can't do braids anymore! i tried this morning and i felt like i lost a part of my childhood b.c i couldn't figure out how to get my bangs into my braid! alas. i will have to admire from a distance.

Laura [What I Like] said... that braid/chignon thing! Now I know what to do with my embarassingly long hair...

Sal said...

Just heard about this group recently ... such enchanting braid-based styles!

Jay Tee said...

Periodically, I decide that I'm going to let my hair grown long again. Not because I want it long, because I think it looks better short, but because I miss being able to braid it.

This is making me slightly regret my recent decision to go short again. So elegantly relaxed. I love it.

Diane said...

Unfortunately, my hair is too short to wear braids but it's photos/groups like these that always make me think about trying to grow it out (which I know will never work. I'm just too impatient). These hairstyles are so ideal for summer, though.

Jessie Leigh said...

I'm a total sucker for the braids. Especially when worn in a non-pigtail way. They are beautiful and fun and wink-and-a-nod-youthful.

Carole said...

I loooove braids!! I am finally growing out my hair after years of it being short and i'm SO excited to try some of these :)

Joanna said...

Braids are so beautifully classic. They're a crowd pleaser among men, too!

Joy White said...

I have always wanted the hair that would allow me to have braids. My is too fine to hold them, Great pictures.

*c said...

yes! love these photos. in fact, i just blogged about them!

Olivia Rae said...

braids are by far my favorite hairstyle... I can't go a day without having at least a tiny one in my hair!

Melissa said...

I've always loved braids! This makes me want to grow my hair out again!

Rebecca said...

i know, right? i have been enchanted with this group for a while now. i wish i could master the across-the crown braid!

raymi lauren said...

cosmic i just braided my hair up for the first time yesterday. (someone linked this post in my comments) hi!

Kate said...

I absolutely love #3!

A said...

The third one is awesome. Makes me want to get dressed up and braid my hair.

Elyse said...

So lovely! I frequently look at Free People for braid inspiration...such lovely styles! =)

Vanessa said...

Sorry, but is it just me or does the girl in the second picture look like a young Jodie Foster? Just sayin...

Joanna Goddard said...

olivia, i love that! and vanessa, so true :)

Joanna Goddard said...

ps. she's jenny from

Katey Dutton said...

came across this flicker group about a week love love!

Short hair braid tip! I have a little shaggy bob that i thought would be impossible to french braid. But what I do is I do one big french braid down the middle and by the time I get to the nape of my neck there is just the tiniest bit of hair left so I twist it up and pin it with bobby pins. It looks super elegant and fun and takes literally 5 minutes.

logan said...

I love braids too! They look can look sweetly mature when done right.

When my parents got divorced my dad bought a book to learn how to braid my long curly hair. He became the baddest braider on the of my favorite stories about sweet.

Thanks for sharing this!

K. Carlos said...


Teresa said...

Ha! I just posted about the braid craze as well. It's the perfect way to hide my dirty bangs!

Madame Ladybug (Ady) said...

When my hair was longer I used to braid it frequently. I wish it would grow faster so I could do that again!

Cynthia at A Shimmy in My Spirit said...

I especially like the third one down. I was just thinking about getting my hair cut...after your post maybe not.

gangsta bride said...

yes, yes i do. they're so great because my hair is always a mess, and i can just pull it into a braid and it looks messy-on-purpose.

LouDuk said...

The fourth one down has some good photography skills.

Joanna Goddard said...

yay, cynthia, grow it out! :)

cassaundra said...

yes - i love braids!

Jen said...

I do! I do! I've been seeing them everywhere.

cassi rash said...

I LOVE all of these looks! I just feel like I can't ever pull them off. That and I'm terrible at braiding!

Eddie said...

Mine never look quite so chic - I've been inspired by these photos to continue trying!

Amber said...

Im wearing a side one as I read this. Love them. Braids are HUGE in Sweden, HUGE. You see them everywhere, little, big, single, double. Love them

down and out chic said...

as soon as my hair gets long enough, you can bet i'll be braiding it.

Amy said...

the last braid is gorgeous, I'm not even sure if I know how to make a braid anymore, but I can't wait to try! - Amy

sarah { esseegee } said...

i love the braid look! so laid-back and feminine! beautiful images.

Carissa said...

I love braids but I am so bad at doing them! I don't even know how to do a French braid. But if I was better at them, I would definitely try to recreate the looks in the third and the last photo. beautiful and girly but still casual.

orange sugar home said...

ok, are these ladies human? I don't see a single blemish or flaw on any of them. Gorgeous and so classic.

nole @ oh so beautiful paper said...

Oh, these are so lovely - I love Braid Wednesday! I wish I knew how to do one of the top-side braids like the top photos, but I'm a bit braid-challenged at this point in time. The braid/knot-combo in the middle is my favorite, I think...

Pretty Things said...

I miss my long hair!

some jerk said...

Hooray! I have braids right now :)

banana said...

Thanks for the flickr link. I'm growing my hair longer so I can have it braided for my sister's wedding. Sooo pretty. :D

jean goddard said...

You looked adorable in French braids and your head never looked too big. It was a pleasure plaiting your hair!!

Anonymous said...

I love the 2nd and last one especially.

RO.MA. said...

adore this post!
love braids. who doesn't!!??? :)

mesh and lace said...

i love these looks. but sadly, i never learned how to do a decent braid beyond a pathetic basic hanging one. :(


Penny said...

So pretty and romantic.

Liz Powers said...

Ha! I have an enormous head too... and I've been trying to figure out how to do the side braid without taking a bad trip back to middle school or looking like the crackhead from Friday. Thanks for the photos.

Lilith said...

such beautiful braids...

Apt. #34 said...

picture 3 - the perfect bride hair!

Annabelle said...

OOh I love braids - but could never do them myself... shall have to give it another go!

Sammi said...

French braids look awesome :)

mosey said...

these are beautiful and have inspired me to put some braids in my hair for tonight's dinner! thanks for all the fantastic posts!

Jaime said...

I love this summer look- so effortless- I have been rockin' it too! :)

Maddie said...

oh i want long hair so i can have a braid!

Nicole said...

Anyone commenting with very short hair should just try a small french braid on one side of a deep part! My hair is probably 6 inches long on the top and less than 1 inch long in places and I still braid. Ofcourse, I am growing it out with very little more than big braids as a reason!

Miss Jeanett said...

Wow love all the hairstyles! Gorgeous!


soph said...

i was the only kid in school whos mum couldnt braid... and now i dont know how to teach my own kids one day :(

alli_jo said...

Hehe...I wore my hair in braids that day :) I love braids...I wear them when I'm feeling juvenile (in a good way)

amy elise said...

oooh. i've been dying for some new ways to control my mane. thank you! thank you!

kaja said...

braids are my favourite hair style in last days :-)

Kirby said...

I love the braids right now. I wish i had the ability to french braid my own hair... or had a roommate that new how.

Sprouted Kitchen said...

oh braids. They make me feel young. My hair is too curly these days to make them look lovely, but even pictures of them bring back fond memories :)

kateschmate said...

Does anyone know of a good site on how to make these braids? Specifically in the third, fifth and sixth pics...

Thanks for sharing these great pics!
