French Braids

I learned how to French braid my hair when I was in college.  My roommates and I all had shoulder length hair and living in an all-girls dorm, it was the most natural thing in the world that we all experimented with different hair styles.

Since college, I’ve gone through a progression of hairstyles – with most of them being too short to braid.   But I’ve settled into a bob and about a year ago, I saw a picture of a side French braid and decided to give it a try.  With the summer weather, the side braid has become my go-to style because it keeps the hair off my face.  I laugh at humidity – and the style is great for the gym too.  Want to learn to French braid?  Try this tutorial:
