I finished my crochet braids and am seriously loving how they came out.
I used the FreeTress hair I got, shown in the previous post. Cut it in half and used the mixed color on the bottom and the solid color on top. I cut it so that the highlights on the bottom would peak through.
Damn! I look fly... lol
Here is the process I went through to achieve this look.
I started out by braiding the hair kinda straight back. I did 2 braids where I wanted my part to be and connected them into one single braid.I got lazy in the middle and braided them a little thicker then they should have been.
The hair I added in going across in rows until the mixed hair was finished.
Here is a shot as I started on the sides.
As I went, I did fill it in a little more than what I have pictured.
I did the pieces a little thicker than I should have in the back. I found that they hold better the thinner the pieces are.
Here is where I stopped and started on the video tutorial. Ahhhh!!!
Here I go, all done, no makeup! This is just before I chopped it up into the style! Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
I love doing new styles like this. I get so freaking bored when I wear my hair one way for too long. This was very refreshing because even though I have worn them before long ago, its so different now. It makes me happy. :D
The curls are really full, bouncy, and light.
And they look great on me! Me luvs big hair!
The tutorial will be posted as soon as I finish editing, as long as my MBP does not give me any shit.
