Today we are faking a french braid! French braids are so beautiful, but a lot of people struggle with the braiding part, so I thought I would show how you can achieve the same look but without this whole braiding thing. You do have to make a basic braid, but that’s it, no more braiding! I don’t know if I would say this is easier then a french braid, but if you can not french braid for your life, then this is an option for you!
