Wait and Braid | Lace Braid


Seeing as me and Rachel have become obsessed with braiding we've decided to add a little feature on our blog call Wait and Braid! This is just something were we post our latest hairstyles and braids. I really love the name too so I thought it was a great idea. I hope you all enjoy our braiding posts as much as I love them. I mean it when I say I'm obsessed with braiding. I think doing different braids each day inspire me to experiment with my overall look and style. Plus, a good plait makes me feel like I've actually done something useful with my hair! 

Onto the braid. This is a lace braid I done in Rachel's hair on Friday. I love doing braids in Rach's hair since she got it dyed darker because the condition is beautiful, like pure silk! I think you can see how well conditioned it is in these photographs.

A Lace braid is just a french or dutch braid but your only adding hair into the top section of hair. Hopefully with more practise I'll be able to do more styles with the Lace braid but I think this look is already beautiful and different. It's not hard to style either!
