For most of my adult life I've had pretty short hair - like pixie cuts or above-the-shoulder bobs. It's only been in the past couple of years that I've let it grow and grow. Now I enjoy having long hair and can't imagine cutting it all off. Since I'm not used to having long hair, it really never occurs to me to do anything with it but let it hang there. After the Pike Pine Blog post from yesterday with the photo of the pretty girl with the braided hair, I've been thinking braids would be a great way for me to get my hair off my neck once the weather turns hot. I know this isn't a novel idea to most people, but I'm not used to having hair long enough to do anything with. I've been collecting photos of girls with soft, loose braids wrapped and pinned to their heads. This seams like the perfect way to top off the summer dresses I'm dreaming of wearing.

Also... I always wanted to know how to do one of those fish-bone braids but could never find any instructions that made sense to me. I found this tutorial online and it's so simple and easy to follow!
