When you think of a Side French braid and your new to braiding like I am, you probably want to pull your own strands out because of the so many failed attempts you either tried on yourself or on someone else.
Yep that's me! For some reason, I can't seem to get the principles on doing that particular braid.
Again, I learned a three strand braid at age 30 so I'm way behind to begin with. Lol
But not really, because of this new book called The New Braiding Handbook 60 Modern Twists on Classic Hairstyles, lol long title I know, I was able to make a nicer not messy Side French braid.
This book by Abby Smith is great for beginners like moi and for those who want to up their braiding game by adding and combining them with different hairstyles.
These hairstyles are beautiful in this book and with lots of practice and basic braiding principles these styles can be achieved.
Abby details her book with the basic hair tools you will need to get started, the basic hair types and the basic Techniques.
The Braids beautifully illustrated in the book are:
I absolutely love this Bohemian Crown Braid...
Here's a style in the book that is not a braid but it's great to know this little secret used on celebrities.
I tried it and it looked good.
Here's the Side French braid I did on my Barbie Doll head.
I was excited! I learned! and it looked neat and not messy this time.
Of course, it's not perfected but I will keep on practicing so I can do it on myself and on my daughter.
Oh yes! here's another type of braid in the book it's called a Rope braid.
Again, Barbie was my hair model lol
The New Braiding Handbook will never go out of style and I'm keeping it in my library.
You can obtain a copy here : The New Braiding Handbook and it's published by Ulysses Press
If you are a beginner like me then this book should definately be in your library as well.
