“The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated,
full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”
Ladies, are these qualities reflected in your speech and actions? I’m specifically convicted by peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated. Sometimes it’s so easy in conversation to beat someone over the head with our beliefs/convictions or opinions. We should strive to be gracious and teachable as we interact with others.
This is my absolute favorite variation of the French braid. Pretty much every other french braid has you starting with unparted hair, but that is unflattering on me. Here is an elegant solution to that problem. This style, along with the Flip and Twist, are my two every-day, go-to hair dos. I love it because it’s a nice way to get your hair up without a bun, especially if you get hair-induced headaches. You should be confident in French braiding before attempting this style.
*Note* I had a really hard time getting a hand free to push the button on my camera for this step. The cross should be on the middle!! And I went back and retwisted the left section.
But a French braid has three sections, not just two, right?
4. Continue French braiding as you normally would. When you run out of hair, regular braid all the way down.
The rest of the steps are entirely optional.
5. Fold the braid up, tucking the ends under the “French” part of the braid. (Actually, I tucked a bunch more, too!)
This style deserves a better name than “French Braid Variation.” Any ideas?
