How To: Whimsical Braid

You may be wondering why I call this whimsical. It's just messy, you say. Well, I raise to you this question: do you think that faeries would have time to make their hair nice and neat? I don't think that they would. I do think, though, that they would take the time to stop and put some fresh flowers in their hair.
Before we start, I'd like to say that I'm by no means a hair expert. If this doesn't work for you, that's ok! If you have an idea on how I could do something better, I'm all ears.
 You Will Need:
♥ A clear elastic
♥ Bobby pins
♥ Fresh flowers (optional)
♥ Lots of time and patience to let your hair dry
1. Starting with wet hair, make a simple braid. Don't worry about it being neat, mine certainly isn't.
2. Wait for your hair to dry (this may take a few hours). Your braid should be fuller and have more volume.
3. To make your braid even bigger, use your fingers to gently pull it apart.
4. Intertwine your flowers in your braid and use bobby pins to keep them in place. I cut some sweet peas from my backyard and placed them from darkest to lightest, but do whatever works for you. You could also use paper flowers if you'd like.

If you try this I would love to know! You can leave a comment down below or email me at littlemoondragon@outlook.com.
