Today's hair

My hair is still in the three braids from yesterday. So today I poked a hair stick through the bases of the two side braids, then wrapped the braids around the stick as a Chinese bun. Then I wrapped the middle braid around the Chinese base.

I got the metal hair stick back in a winter swap on UTT back in 2014.

I liked it. It looked very complicated when it really wasn't.

Hair inspiration

That looked simple enough, but of course it will look different with my longer hair.
So, three three-stranded braids...

It got pretty nice and flat, but it looks nothing like the picture I was inspired by.

Shorter and thinner hair is simply better for creating cute updos...

Chunky infinity braid

This braid has been on my "Want to learn" list for quite a while. I'm not entirely sure if it's even doable on yourself, since I have yet to see that as a video. It's always someone else to do the braiding. Maybe the weaving motion is too difficult and delicate.

I talked a coworker into letting me try it on her (The same one I did the dragon braids and the rope braids on) and it's definitely a difficult one to master.
I think I did a pretty good job until I ran into her first layers, then the cool texture of the "weaving" was ruined.

(Awkward cropping due to being in the middle of work)
