sunday style: braids like a swede

gif maker

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Sunday Style so here it is! I’ve been pulling off side braids for quite some time now so I thought I’d give this extended version a try using this pin as my inspiration. I wouldn’t say I nailed it by any means but I think it turned out pretty okay.

I started braiding just above my right ear and continued across the top of my head. When I got to braiding at the nape of my neck it just wasn’t happening – I tried it 3 times. Instead, I added the rest of my hair to the braid sections and braided towards my right shoulder before securing it with a clear, small elastic. With a quick twist up and to the left followed with a quick tuck of the end of the braid, I was ready for pinning (it took about 7 bobby pins to keep it all tight).

I’m going to try it again…someday. There are a lot of braids to try that may help me lead up to this one…we’ll see. :)

PS I have zero skills and made the animated gif here.
