Day 24: Waterfall Braid

This is the style that I saw really early on in my research for hairstyles for this challenge and I never thought I'd be 'professional' enough to master it. You know what? My first attempt wasn't too shabby!

I got the style from Cute Girls Hairstyles which is seriously my go-to site for hairstyles, even though I am not of 'cute girl' age :) However, the picture I chose to go with this post is from a new blog that I discovered called Sea Creatures and I couldn't resist purely because there is a puppy in the picture!!

And here is my attempt. This was my very first attempt and I actually wanted to try it again but then I was afraid that any other attempt wouldn't be as good, so I left it as is! I'll stick with beginner's luck!
You can't really see the 'waterfall-y' bits in my hair but trust me, they're there. I also didn't go as far back as I should have. I did the other side too and then brought both braids to meet in the back. I can't wait to try again.

I wore my coat that makes me feel like I'm off on a quest, Lord of the Rings style, and my boots that I saw someone from the Night's Watch wear in Game of Thrones. I had my hair done like a noblewoman. I was in my own little fantasy novel as I walked to school, I felt like a badass maiden. I feel like every day should start like that!
