2 braided hairstyles using 1 unique braid!
The first hair style (shown in the photos above and below) does not require french braiding skills. Yay! If you can do a standard 3 strand feather braid and tie a simple knot, you can do this. The Princess commented that these braids tied together draping at the back of her head remind her of a fancy lace wedding veil! I have to agree, and can see this working as a bridal hairstyle, or for a flower girl. This style also has a medieval, renaissance, princessy feel to it.
We both love this hairdo, but I would recommend using it only for "low activity" days. As I'm sure most of you have found, any hairstyle which uses braids laying over the head and connected at the back usually ends up with the hair underneath (and above the braids) trying to escape, tangle, and pop up! We usually save styles like this for church and other special occasions.

By the way, if you would rather wear your hair up... of course, you could always add a ponytail, braid, or bun to either style!
