Try it Thursday: the french braid

I know, it's kind of old school - but I had this romantic notion of having some kind of loose and carefree hair do  for the wedding. You know the kind, a wispy braid that starts on one side, winds wistfully across your head and someone does something amazing with it at the end, and voila! You have a gorgeous, side swept look as if you just ran through a field of flowers. Ugh. I just shuddered at how much of a hippy I sounded.

So for my first try it Thursday, I went online (as you do), found a vid, and french braided my hair as instructed. I gotta say, I'm a long way off being confident enough to do my own wedding hair, but it wasn't a bad effort for the first time - far better than my photography for Tuesday anyway!
