Feminine Hairstyles, Day 2

Model: "Miss Nacia"

Style: A combination of five princess crowns, named after this young lady since I invented it for her. :)

Done: About a month ago

How: The "princess crown" is what I call a small, horizontal, curved french braid which pulls hair only from the front. This combination is explained in more detail with the photos below...

Supplies: Comb, small hairties (and I actually styled her bangs with hand lotion because it was nearby — it worked!)

Time: I redid parts of this one while deciding how I wanted it to look, so it was probably about 30-45 minutes.


Finished "masterpiece". She was so patient while I experimented, but by her expression upon looking in the mirror, I think she was satisfied. :)

The first two braids go from right to left, the middle braid from left to right, and the bottom two from right to left.
The other side...

The front gives an unique "pigtail" appearance with two braids on one side and two on the other

That is so neat Claire!

I REALLY like this one! Alas, my hair is probably too thin (and too short yet) for this style. How do you come up with things like this? :)

Love in Christ,

Thanks, ladies!

Malori, after years of braiding I just constantly try new combinations and variations. :) I always say a head of hair is like my empty artist's palate!
