Dreamweaver | My Favorite Hair Braiding Tutorials

I'm obsessed with braids. I wish that my hair was about five inches longer strictly so that I could have a longer tail to my fishtail.

Braiding ones own hair seems to scare a lot of women. I think it's because braids look so fancy (even when they are messy) and time consuming. 

But, that's not true!

If I could only share one bit of advice when it comes to braiding your own hair, it would be to NOT look in the mirror while fiddling with the cross-overs. When I do so, the opposition throws me off and usually results in starting the process over a couple of times.

My favorite aspect of a hair braid is how functional it is - you can go from a lazy day by the pool to a hot date at night with the same stylish, romantic, feminine and fun hairstyle. 

I've collected my favorite hair braiding tutorials below. I'm asked quite a bit how I did a certain hairstyle and my answer is always "YOUTUBE!" - it's true! Practice along just a few times with the video's below and you'll have mastered these techniques in no time :) Good luck!
