    Post Medieval Braiding/Hairstyles

    I thought I would share this article, it has many pictures and lots of new information on how to braid and style hair in beautiful, distinctly european ways. It includes things like how to braid leather, ribbons, or strings of pearls into your hair, the three and four strand braid and more.

    I've never heard of hair taping, but it looks so simple. I'll have to try it on my daughter some time. I love braiding hair. I did her hair in two french braids just the other day and then today I let them down and showed her how pretty and wavy it makes her hair afterward. I learned how to french braid when I was in third grade. I had a friend named Hannah who had hair down to her rear, and it was the thickest hair ever. I used to sit and practice braiding her hair all the time and I couldn't even barely wrap my fingers around her hair because I was so young and her hair was so thick. Such nice memories of childhood...... Now I have a daughter with hair to braid. My daughter's hair was down to her waist, but I got tired of dealing with the tangles once and I cut it all off. Now her hair is getting long again-- it's about halfway down her back. My daughter has that thin, wispy type of hair.

    I have always liked the Klutz books because of the things they teach. They have one book called Hair: A Book of Braiding and Styles. It teaches some very simple braiding and updo techniques that are good for anyone who wants an elegant style to show off somewhere. And the great thing about learning the basics they show is that with a little creativity you can come up with completely new and beautiful looks.

    I have always loved to do hair myself. Although I must say that I really envy you Jennifer because you got to learn how to braid hair on a person. When I was about 7 or 8 I learned how to braid hair on one of my "My Little Pony" ponies. I think that braided styles are my favorite hair styles though, they just look more noble to me.

    Thank you NordicPower88 for posting this thread, I really appreciate it!

    My hair to is very thick, and I have a cousin with red hair whose hair is 25% thicker than mine!

    But unfortunately I have lost a lot of hair thickness since my son was born. It used to be 5 inches around (circumference) in a pony tail, but now I only have 3 inches. Oh well, people still tell me my hair is very thick!

    Godiva-

    You can come practice on my hair any time!

    Lol I have yet to learn to french braid. For some reason I just dont get it!

    I used to have a friend that loved to play with my hair. And when my mom had long super thick hair I used to love to style it for her... I've even put braids in my fathers, brothers and husbands hair before!

    Thats such a pretty style for a little girl!

    and then today I let them down and showed her how pretty and wavy it makes her hair afterward.
    Yeah my mom taught me about that too, I still braid my hair wet and let it dry from time to time!

    I learned how to french braid when I was in third grade. I had a friend named Hannah who had hair down to her rear, and it was the thickest hair ever. I used to sit and practice braiding her hair all the time and I couldn't even barely wrap my fingers around her hair because I was so young and her hair was so thick. Such nice memories of childhood......
    My hair used to be waist length in 3rd grade but then I cut it to shoulder length and kept it short until a few years ago.

    Now I have a daughter with hair to braid. My daughter's hair was down to her waist, but I got tired of dealing with the tangles once and I cut it all off. Now her hair is getting long again-- it's about halfway down her back. My daughter has that thin, wispy type of hair.
    I have a son not much styling to do there lol... I part his hair to the side where his natural part is, and he looks so adorable. It has NS connotations. If I ever have any girls I wont be able to stop myself from giving them the old BDM hairstyle with two braids.
