F for French Braid

I'd wanted to do a F for Fitness post but realized this was more fun, partly because of a friend who loves women in French braid (Tresse Française) and partly because of other friends who want to rag this friend and partly because of popular demand! :)

This not-so-easy hair do makes a woman look stylish and chic. Especially the summer months calls for a hair style that holds the hair without them plastering all over the face. And more so, on a bad-hair day. I usually wear my hair like this for workouts and long walks.

The Indian "pai-pinnal", typically worn after a hair wash, on wet hair, is a variation of this French Braid.

I dedicate this post to Sriram Acharya. To all my fellow CBCians, start music! Cheers.

  7. I love French braids too...but I don't know what's gotten into my hair to just not stay in anymore. I get tons of wipsy strands all pokey out now. It never stays pretty anymore.

    1. Try a gel or something? It might just hold the hair in place, or those clips :) Perhaps, it's time for a haircut?

  8. I love the way French braids look (and adore the French phrase Tresse Francaise!) and thankfully my two daughters have long hair. The photo you chose is a lovely rendition of a French braid. P.S. When I first saw the title of your post, I thought it said French bread. Teehee.

    Just stopping by from A to Z.
