I have the sort of hair that absolutely refuses to do anything other than lie completely straight. All the hairspray in the world can’t convince my locks to hold a curl. While straight down, straight ponytails and straight half ponytails are all well and good, they get a little boring after 20 years. So after giving up on the curling cause, I became something of a braiding aficionado. From straight up three piece braids to french and fishtail, straight and curly haired girls alike can master and use these instructions to relieve their hair boredom.
