Summer Hair: The French Braid

Side French Braid

Classic French Braid



Unlike the makeup, I've never been good at styling my hair, I only know the plainer hairdos and usually my must ones are a high knot or ponytail, a side tail or a simple braid. Braids have always been my favorite hairstyle: timeless and romantic, they are the most feminine and stylish; at the moment I'm addicted to the french version, a bit trickier to do but not for that impossible, you just need patience and practice. But once learnt, you will be able to create many creative hairdos for fun summer looks :)

Are you also a fan of the french braid? Are you an expert on doing it or rather a beginner as me?

Have a wonderful week ahead!

xoxo

Io la amo, ogni tanto me la faceva mia sorella, ma ora che ha un bimbo neonato non ha più tempo. Io ci ho provato ma davvero sono imbranata!!

Hello my lovely!! I am terrible with my hair, I wish I could afford a hair stylist for every day, haha. It would be much easier. I think braids are a lot of fun, I used to get my hair braided a lot growing up :)) The side braid is perfect. I hope your weekend was gorgeous doll & your new week will be too :) Hugs and loves xoxoxo

I have never been able to create a perfect french brain - as a kid and teen I relied on my friend (she was BRILLIANT!) or my mum for this. Such a shame because this really is one of my favourite hair styles. x

Nicky mywishstyle said...

adoro....mia mamma è bravissima a farle, dovrei approfittarne più spesso...

Ivana said...

Mimma Carbone ♥ said...

Adoro la treccia, mi piacerebbe farne di diversi tipi... ma al massimo mi riesce una spettinata e di lato =(

Simera H said...

I really love braids especially on long hair. I bet they looks amazing on your hair. I know how to do braids but it can be tricky on short hair like mine.

Audrey Borderline said...

Ciao Lilli,
nemmeno io sono brava con i capelli, per questo tendo a tagliarli spesso -.-' -.-'
Adoro le trecce e prima le facevo sempre, amavo portarla grande, un po' spettinata e di lato.
Quando mia sorella era piccola,invece, le facevo le treccioline, tutta la testa ahuahauhau non erano perfette ma in spiaggia spopolavano.
un bacione cara :** <3 <3

If my daughter was a little girl I made her every day difference braids. But this hairstyle is not only for girls, this looks also lovely for young women like you. I love this hairdo especially with romantic outfits.
Dear Lilli, un grande bacione per te :)

Wow, I watched the video and making a french braid is so complicated! But I like it! I usually put my hair in a braid when going to the beach - I like it much more than a ponytail! Once a friend of mine made me a french braid. :) Thanks for sharing, Lilli! I'd definitely try it when my exams are completely over! Have a nice day!

adoro le trecce!

Fabiola Tinelli said...

Che meraviglia Lilli, adoro le trecce ma sono un po' imbranata da una parte, dall'altra invece i miei capelli sono lisci lisci e scivolano via dopo un po'! Ma devo ricominciare a fare la treccia a lisca di pesce, mi piace un sacco!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

When I was younger and had longer hair, the french braid was one of my favorite styles. It's such a pretty and fun look especially for summer to get the hair off your neck. I recall seeing you rock some fun braids Lilli :) Now that I wear my hair in an a-line bob I kind of missing being able to style it in braids and ponytails. Have a fantastic week sweets!

I've always loved French braids Lilli. I think they're so gorgeous. If I had long hair, I would style it in a French braid.

Pamela RG said...

I agree Lilli, it takes a certain skill and patience to learn to make a perfect braid. But once you know how, you can do anything. A braid looks so good too. All the best to you this week.

Sonia De Macedo said...

I am no expert sadly. But I've been in love with braids since I was a little girl. My mum could never master it herself though so I suppose it makes sense that I'm just as hopeless. :o( I need to practice these though, video tutorials are pretty good but it requires a lot of concentration on my part lol!

Hi Liili, french braids are my favorite hairstyle but unfortunately I'm unable to make it on my own hair, though I can make this braid perfectly on other's hair but sadly not on myself.It's such a pretty and fun look especially for summer to get the hair off your neck. After watching this video I'm excited to try once again. I agree that it takes certain skill and patience to make a perfect braid. I'll surely try. Thanks honey for this lovely post! I hope you have a wonderful day. Many hugs and kisses to my sweet friend <3

Christine Uy said...

Hey Lilli! Sorry I haven't visited your blog as much as I want to. Life has been sooo busy lately and I find it hard to keep up with everything. I LOVE french braids, they give the hair so much glam and I love that there a ton of varieties you can do with it! I'm not too good with doing my hair too, I wish I can learn someday. Hopefully I can try the complicated braids. =D I hope you're having a fabulous week hun! mwaah;*

Take care always, love Christine ~ xx

Ciao Lilli. Io la adoro e la sfoggio spesso ma purtroppo riesco a fare a mala pena una semplice treccia laterale. Quella del video è bellissima e non sembra neanche troppo difficile da realizzare, bisognerebbe provare! Un bacio.

Mi piace da morire, vorrei essere in grado di farla proverò con l'ausilio del video tutorial <3

Great post. I'm so bad at styling my hair but braids looks lovely. I wish I could do more than just a regular braid. I might have to try out this french braid.

la treccia è davvero una delle acconciature più belle in assoluto. Io la adoro praticamente in ognuno dei modi che hai mostrato. Splendido stile elegante e sbarazzino quanto basta.
