Braids, Braids, Braids

December 3, 2012 — Leave a comment

I’m really inspired by braids and how they can be worn in all aspects of life and how they can transform a look from simple to intricate, innocent to wild or from elegant to avant-garde.  A braid can be worn to work, a weekend at the beach, a night out on the town, and used in a wedding party or by the bride herself. They’re just fun.

I like the idea of mixing different types of braids together and pulling the braid apart to deconstruct it for interesting textures. I also like the idea of using braids to create different shapes and proportions.

These are a few of my own braid creations, but I love to go on pinterest.com and search the hundreds of braid pictures for ideas and inspiration. You can also find a lot of braiding how-to videos on youtube.com

So, experiment and have fun!
