You're probably thinking "What? Braids? Challenging?" Here's the story ladies. My mama has naturally curly hair and doesn't know how to braid hair or how to teach me. I spent nearly every morning of elementary school sitting backward on the toilet set while my mother ripped the infamous topsy tail through my hair. #ouch #ninetieskid
In preparation for this challenge I tried many styles and even enlisted the help of a kind co-worker. In the end I decided on a simple and classic braid that even a beginner can handle, AKA me!
I started by back combing a few sections of hair at the crown of my head. Then I gathered my hair into a simply ponytail with an elastic band.
Next I braided a small section of hair from the bottom side of my ponytail, securing the ends with a small elastic.
Finally I wrapped the braid around the ponytail, covering the elastic, and used bobby pins to secure the braid. I really like how quick and easy this braid was, plus it was far less painful than a topsy tail!
