Wrap around braids have always been fascinating to me. Even before they became a little trendy I would wonder just how in God's name one wrapped their hair around the front from the back. It was even more shocking to me when my Russian pal would do her own braid, claiming it was a last minute resort to a bad hair day or laziness. To me the glossy rightness of the braid looked painstaking. Mind you I was in the midst of learning how to care for my own hair so a lot of hair styles were aw inducing at the time. Fast forward three years and I have to agree, this braid thing is infact the solution to many a lazy day.
