With my hair getting longer and longer, I've been feeling inspired to try out some new hairstyles. Lord knows I'm a huge fan of the milkmaid braided hairstyles, but my hair was a bit too short to do it properly when braiding down. HOWEVER, it suddenly dawned on me that I might as well braid them UPWARDS! That way, your hair is always longer, unless you have a mullet. Hey, I'm not judging, whatever floats your boat. Anyway, I basically made two messy french braids in my hair while holding my head upside down (yes, I was actually braiding my hair with my head between my legs), and crossed them on top of my head, pinning them under the other braid to create my OSSUM hairstyle.
Looks cool, right? I'm so glad my hair is long right now. Is my explanation even SORTA clear? I should really do a video tutorial but I have no idea how to film myself braiding my hair with my head between my legs!! :-D This is a great step by step explanation of french braiding, that's what I did on both sides of my head, but with my head upside down, starting at the nape of my neck. Doesn't matter if you're doing it messily, if it looks a bit crappy you can just use bobby pins to straighten it out, that's what I did! :-D And it looks a lot harder than it is, I am by no means a hair or braiding expert and I put this together in two minutes or something. ANYWAY I have my first exam tomorrow and even though I know I prepared sufficiently, I'm starting to stress out a tiny little bit, so I'm leaving y'all now to go over the last bit of my notes! Wish me luck :-)
