The Braid I have Always Been Obsessed With

I always dreamed about a beautiful braid on my so short hair… How can I say…it was pretty hard—or even impossible—until the other day! *Feeling SOOO excited*

I felt like a little girl whom you gave the most amazing and incredible Barbie! I’m not joking, I’m super serious!

Because of something I wouldn’t wish on anybody, over two years ago my hair had to be cut. When I used to have long hair, I would never styled them in any other way that straight or wavy. Braids were like such a shame for me!

Now, as it is possible (I mean it’s so braid inspo goals as we all saw on Instagram!) I feel like I actually accomplished something! So now I’m dreaming about many other hairstyles inspo seen on Instagram, I thought my hair would never be long enough to do so!!

Thank you to my sis (so braid-talented!!), she can be proud of her!!

    Such a gorgeous braid! I wish I could do that, or have someone do that for me. I don’t ususally venture into the braid-style though.

    Nice hair! How fun and summery! I love trying out new hairstyles. Elaborate braids don’t come out as nicely on dark hair, but I always French braid my hair when i go to the gym because it keeps all my hair in place really well, and it’s feminine. 🙂

    I think that braid looks amazing, super cute plus extra volume to your hair. I used to wear this all the time when I was home, cos I really get annoyed by my hair all over my face. But then I stole one of those hair clipers from my sister and realized that’s even easier to put your hair together (not so much to be worn in public though) 🙂
