Ooh you could do the style I used for my wedding! I have side bangs, so I french braid them and the hair beneath them (framing my face) down behind my ear. I put an elastic in it and the go to the other side. I french braid the hair all the way from that side down and around the back of my head, framing my face and then going along the bottom of my hair line. I braid it over to he other braid. I then gather all the left over hair and the two braids, and I braid them into one big braid that goes over my shoulder. Really pretty!

Sorry I don’t have any good pictures of it.

Are you talking about wedding hair or everyday hair?

Mine is about the same length except I recently added in major layers- they start around my face & go long down almost to my belly button- I LOVE it because it moves easily & if I wear it down it looks like I have extensions & lots of body. 

I usually wear side braids- fishtail is my favorite, along with waterfall braids & french braids. I’ve been REALLY wanting to try the giant 5-strand braid but I’m too chicken =)

If it’s not braids for me then it’s usually a sock bun (to the side, on top, or regular bun style); or a pony tail with braids/twists incorporated around the sides of my head… I did a french twist one time and that was fun- but with so much hair it can get big quick like… I’ve tried the reverse french braid to a bun but I’m always in a hurry & haven’t gotten it down yet….

@kaylee26:  I like to do just two french braids and then make a bun out of the two braids in the back. I get a ton of compliments, and when I get home at night it’s all crimpy and perfect!  I also invested in a sock bun thing (h&M has them for like a dollar) and that works pretty well too!

 

if you google freckled fox blog she has a ton of great tutorials too. some are a little extravagant, but there are a lot of good everyday ones!
