Prepare To Plait

Sometimes I wake up with simply no idea what to do with my hair. It is an awful feeling when combined with being in a rush, and it is even worse when I leave the house completely dissatisfied at my hairs behaviour! To save you any hair troubles, I thought I would start the week off with seven of my favourite braids! There are no instructions, as they are all super easy to do! All you need is a sturdy hairbrush, a hair tie, an optional bow, and some bobby pins. Best of luck!

  1. I love the different braids! I can’t wait until my hair is long enough to do all of these. You are gorgeous.

  2. These are some gorgeous photos of you! And beautifully styled too. I’m loving braids at the moment too but its more of a weekend thing because I’m always rushing to get off to work during the weekdays so I never have time.

  3. Beautiful photos! I love braids, when I cut my hair shorter & realized I couldn’t braid it, that was devastating to me. Now my hair is longer and I love braiding it, I’m going to have to try some of these styles :)

  4. I looooove braids sooo much!! I wish I can wear them all the ways you did here but sometimes my hair is sooooo THICK and I have so much that they look chunky and well, not as pretty as they look on your hair jeje…

    I change how I wear my hair everyday, and being someone that just can’t figure out how to do french braids (grrr) I love how these all are different but all do-able :)

  6. This is beautiful! Your hair is basically what I dream of mine looking like (oh the length! One day!) and I can’t wait to be able to play around with it like this.

  7. So many great ideas! I never think to braid my hair, or if I do I end up with little kid pigtails which is just weird!

  31. Jo, you quite seriously have the most amazing hair!! These are all very stunning. I am always feeling like I am in a rush and my hair looks yuck so I stick with a side pony or low bun …I am determined to try out at least one of these even though my hair is much shorter and layered..fingers crossed:)

  32. I have long hair too and without braids I have no idea how I would deal with my hair each day. I love the bun-braid on top of the head.

    Great photos

  33. I’ve missed so many of your posts! So lovely to catch up on. Your purple dipped hair is amazing as are these braids…what a pretty collar you had on when your hair was in that bun

  37. What a gorgeous blog! I love your logo with the little fox… and your hair looks perfect in every one of these photos! I like wearing my hair in a messy side braid :) x

  38. I usually go for option 3, but actually without the braid; just a top knot! I’m so lazy with my hair and tend to never make much of an effort unless I’m going on a night out or it’s a special event!
    These pictures are beautiful, so creative and you look gorgeous x

    Gorgeous! Every single one of them. I’ve been doing my typical side plait recently and braided pigtails are always fun, too. I’ve never thought of a braided top-knot… I wonder if my hair would comply…
