I need to get my hair trimmed - these plaits are amazing I don't think I'd be able to do them - then again i'm still trying to learn how to do a fish tail one.

So proud of you! You are such an inspiration. I mean think about it. You did this for a whole year! How many people can say they did one thing for a whole year? And think... 6.5 inches of growth?? ahhhhh!!

Can't wait for the tutorial on mini bangs.
