Braiding hair has never been my forte. Every time I attempt a fancy braided do, I usually end up with tired arms and a lopsided mess. But like most things, practice makes perfect so I’ve been gathering inspiration to help ease the learning curve.

There’s just something about springtime that begs for feminine outfits and a little (or big) braid thrown into the mix. Here are a few hair styles I’m hoping to imitate for sunny days ahead.
