It’s day 8 of the 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids.
It’s hard to believe that we are on our second week of the challenge already! If you haven’t done any of other challenge days – that’s ok! It’s not too late to join. And as I always say – if you can’t manage all 30 days, that’s ok too! You’ll be amazed at how your skills will grow if you just try for as many days as you can manage.
Today’s challenge is the 4 Strand Ribbon Braid. I know that there are some of you out there who would not feel comfortable with ribbon braided into your hair — and I get that. I’ve only done it in my own hair a couple of times, while I love it on my girls’ hair. But be brave with me, let’s step outside our comfort zones and try something new. Who knows? Maybe it will be your new favorite style. And don’t worry, I made sure to share some tutorials below that show that it’s not just for little girls!
