First Attempt

It's true, I don't know how to french braid. I feel that it's silly that I don't know how. Growing up my dad always french-braided my hair because my mother didn't know how to do it. So her mother taught my dad (still don't get that) and he became the official braider of my head. He did a good job too! So after years of me not knowing how to do it, I'd had enough. I had the basic idea. So I gave it a whirl. The outcome:Could've been worse, right? But I am pretty darn proud of myself that it even turned out that good! Sienna was such a good girl holding (mostly) still and helping hold the brush for me. Next time my goal is to make both sides even. After that...the goal would be to see if I can french braid Chloe's head full of thick luscious locks. Ha! I must be dreaming!

My daddy will be proud!

It looks great, Brooke! A lot better than I can do. It's weird, I can french braid my own hair, but I can't do other peoples. I learned on myself, kind of odd, I know!

Good Job!!! It looks good. You give me hope because I don't know how to either. I have always felt ashamed since I am the ONLY one in my entire family who can not french braid.

how funny. I had to braid my own hair for gymnastics! I wish I had a little girl to braid hair... maybe some day. I guess I could always buy a doll =)

It looks great! London saw this and I asked her if she wanted me to do her hair like Sienna's. I thought maybe she would give in. But no. No cute hair for us. Just a big mess of a curly fro. Bummer.

That looks really good. I have tried a few times on Emily's hair, but it just doesn't work. Like Marisa I can braid my own hair, but not others.
