  1. Such a pretty boho chic hairstyle! Thank you! :)

    Though I noticed that the second braid in the video is a Dutch braid, which is a reversed French braid.

  2. Wow – I love this, not sure if it will work on my hair, it’s not as long..that hair piece is beautiful!

    Is this the similar to the braid Bridgette had a few weeks back ?

  3. You said make the second braid on the opposite side–I watched twice and it looks like it’s on the same side of the head? Am I missing something?

  4. Hi Martha, sorry for the confusion! The braids are on opposite sides of her part, and then criss-crossed over the forehead. I’ve added a photo above to help clarify :)

  5. my hair is very thin right now due to some health issues, but i would really love to be able to pull off something like this. any tips for adding volume to very thin hair before braiding?

  6. luna – try a volumizing conditioner, or if you’re already doing that, i would use surf spray too! i have really thin hair but surf spray gives it a lot more texture and volume. you can also back-comb your hair a bit before braiding.
