So today is something a bit different. Today’s Try It Out Tuesday is a little hairstyle that I’ve been itching to do for a while. It is the Square Braid!
Essentially, it’s a fishtail braid but by feeding the hair both under and over at the same time you get this really cool cube of fishtail braids. I actually expected this to be a lot harder than it was because it looked quite fiddly when I watched the tutorial (which I have posted below), but actually it’s really easy to get the hang of it. The only downside is that if you have really long hair like I do, it takes a really long time to get to the bottom.
Because I was doing it on myself rather than on someone else, I decided to braid the top of my hair in a dino braid (or dutch braid, or boxer braid, whichever floats your boat), put bobbles in the end once I’d reach the bottom of my ears and then began the square braid and I actually really love the look it gave, it’s quite quirky. By doing this, you can jazz up the centre of your braid with bows or those really cute pom pom bobbles.
