Pretty Side French Braid low Updo Hair Tutorial Fashion I wore a more relaxed version of this hair style in an outfit post in June of 2009 but for reasons unbeknownst to me, I never did a tutorial for it.

This rule of thumb also generally applies to boob size too, but that's a post for another day. Being one who falls squarely in the category of naturally wavy hair (in the ugly, frizzy way), I've always lusted after big, bouncy, bodacious curls. Funnily enough, my husband also lusts after big, bouncy and bodacious, but we're not talking about curls (wokka wokka). Since I was little I've been obsessed with curls. I even managed to somehow talk my mom into taking me to get a perm when I was in elementary school, and whenever we had one of those biography projects where you dress up like a famous person and speak in famous-person-first person to your class, I always picked Shirley Temple just so my mom had no excuse not to put my hair in ringlets using this pillowcase method. P.s.

Maegan : Fashion, DIY, Home, Lifestyle: Partial French Braid with Cascading Hair ~ Tutorialalso known as the "Waterfall Braid" ~ Los Angeles I’m not the originator of this hair style but I’ve gotten so many requests for it, I thought I’d give it a go for you. I don’t know what it’s called either so I haven’t researched it and/or found any other tutorials for it …thus, this is my version of it, and I’ve dubbed it the Partial French Braid w/ Cascading Hair. The photos I’ve seen online show the braid a little more straight across the back of the head and mine sort of braids at an angle, similar to my side/low french braid up-do. I’m sure this is 100% easier to do on someone else’s hair than your own but it goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it …I mean, it’s my shortest hair video tutorial to date. That’s gotta mean something, right Enjoy. Note: Apologies in advance for the yelling of “NOOOO” towards the end, where I momentarily fear I’m going to lose my entire braid and have to start over.
