My Yarn Braid Pictures!

So, a few months or so ago I stumbled across a video about this hair style called yarn braids. Prior to that, I had no clue what yarn braids even were lol. Basically, they are braids that look like dread locs. They are temporary though, and you can wash them like you would your hair. Yarn braids are also commonly referred to as "Genie Locs" as well. I've been thinking for a while now, that it would be nice to try some longggg and thick "Janet Jacksonesque" box braids. So... I finally gave in and made the commitment via yarn braids. It took me 17 hours to braid my hair. I spent 8 hours one night doing the top half, and 9 the next night doing the back half. I wanted to try some color as well, so I decided to add a bold pop of blue in the back. I was inspired by fellow Youtuber "shewillbe" to try this style. I love it! I love the look it gives and the fact that I am trying something new. Most of all, I am proud that I did it myself! I have never braided my hair before, and never knew I could do this on my own. But thanks to Youtube tutorials, anything is possible.  I will be posting more blogs and videos soon with details on how I actually braided my hair, so stay tuned for that. For now, please just enjoy my slide show of lovely pictures showing off my great work. Toodles!

  1. I love how it came out. I never heard about doing braids with yarn. My hair has grown out too much for me to have the patience to try it. Lol I just wanted to let you know that I pick your blog as 1 of my favorites for 2011. Have a great day!
