I looove my new hair! I got it done after my road trip. As I am sitting here, I need to get my hair re-done, but I wanted to show you my take on the big box-braid trend. I chose this hair style, because I didn’t want to be doing my hair for 8 hours. This was a quick, easy three hour hair style that makes me look “artistic” 😛

Styling Large Braids and Outfit Details

I wasn’t trying to look too “alternative”, so I just put my hair back in a half pony tail. My hair is short, so a bun on top wasn’t going to cut it.

This day was a pretty casual day, so wore a sweater dress with grayish tights.

To add a little bit of colour, I wore a blue top underneath and added coral pink ankle socks with black boots.

Of course I needed accessories, so I busted out some fringe earrings and a few bracelets I had around the house.

I think that I will wear large braids throughout the fall and perhaps through the winter. They are low maintenance and really, anyone can wear them at any age.  natural-hair-styles-calgary-canada-big-braids (1) (681x1024) big-braids-example (1024x681)
