5 Days Of The Lob: Day 4

Thursday, May 19, 2016 The Desi Wonder Woman 19 Comments

Slightly more elaborate today because sometimes you can spend an extra few minutes on your head and at some point in your life someone taught you how to do a braid, which thanks to todays times can pass off with a messy-chic vibe. God bless.

Day 2 of Styling a LOB: Braids


How did I do it? Took about four inches in the front, flipped it forward and calmly made the braid hanging upside down in front of my face (after the first couple of loops, flip back so the front can be patted down otherwise it'll be a pain to control - then flip back to the front when you're sure and complete the braid). Once done, secured it with an elastic. Then tugged it loose by pulling at the loops to make it look thick and then pinned back. The end.

Time it took: About five minutes.
Variations on this?
a) Braid and pin back at a lower height, like I've done above.
b) Instead of doing at the front, do a double braid (single's fine too) along the length of your hair parting, like below.
c) Do multiple thin braids all around your head.


If your hair's thin, don't worry. Braiding may appear to eat up a lot of your hair so there's not much left behind. But you can use very little hair and make a very thin braid and then tug and pull at it to make it all fat and loose, yus.

p.s. Hair color photographed very weirdly in the first two images. Lighting, incompetency, take your pick while I have a milkshake.

Thoughts please?

Also, tomorrow will be Day 5 of the 5 Days series on the blog so I've planned on not doing the Fridays post and it will be just the hair post. Do you still want the Fridays post or just the hair one is ok? (Please say no so I don't have to do it, YA)

Check out the previous days here: Day 1Day 2, Day 3 & Day 5.

Day 5 tomorrow!
