I have only been braiding since the beginning of 2014… only a couple of years now. Before that, I could do a regular 3 strand braid and a French braid. Then I discovered Cute Girls Hairstyles which led me to discover the incredible braiding world on Instagram (which I wrote about here). My first month on Instagram, June 2014, there were some girls which held a braiding challenge – they had a different braid that you were supposed to do each day of the month. I started doing it and I loved it! It pushed me to be better. It made me try new braids that I had never even heard of! It was a great way to kindle this passion of mine that I had discovered.
Last year I proposed a 30 Day Braiding Challenge of my own and it was a great success! So many people joined in and posted photos on social media. It was a lot of fun!
I am proposing another 30 Day Braiding Challenge for 2016. It doesn’t matter what your braiding experience level is. If you have already done some of these on this list – try doing them in a new way. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to try new things and don’t be afraid of failing – this is how we get better. By the time the 30 days is up, you will be amazed at how your skills will have grown.
I am going to start this challenge on June 1, 2016. I will post a new post every single day for each day of the challenge. I will share tutorials for each of the styles. Some will be mine, but I’ll be sharing tutorials from other talented bloggers and YouTubers as well. I know that some of us will be taking on the challenge by braiding on our kids, but some of us will be braiding on ourselves so I will do my best to share DIY tutorials as well.
I hope that you will take on the 30 Days of New Braids challenge! If you have a busy day and can’t follow along as it’s listed, that’s ok. If you can only do 10 out of 30, that’s ok. But use this as some motivation to grow your skills. You’ll be amazed at what you are capable of!
