Do you do your hair a lot? I find myself throwin’ it up in the ugliest of buns just to get it off of my neck! It’s hot out there… sometimes long braids are still too hot so I got excited when I saw this cool do (From The Beauty Department, of course). Of course, it may be difficult to do on your own but try it and see how it comes out! I’m gonna try and get my husband to do it for me. I’ll let you know how that goes…
THE SNAIL BRAID CHALLENGE
photos + post designed by Kristin Ess
Practice, practice, practice! The best way to learn new braids is to just TRY them! A lot of times we look at photos of braided hairstyles and say “I could never do that!”, but a lot of our favorite braids have been total accidents… like this, this and this. You just start braiding and weaving and see what happens. The best part about braids is there are no rules. These snail braids are no exception! Below, we’ve illustrated how the pattern of a snail braid, but everyone’s hair (and head shape/size) is going to be different, so the customizing the style is up to you. We would love to see you gorgeous gals (and guys?) give this hairstyle your best shot. Here’s the challenge:
Grab a friend and go for it! Try doing the snail braid on each other. The best pair of snail braids will be featured on the upcoming snail braid video tutorial. The deadline is JUNE 8, 2012. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’re welcome to take them on your smartphone or on a regular camera. Just try your best and make it fancy! We can’t wait to see how you do!
