Braids intrigue me. I once learned how to fishtail braid on a theatre bus, but I promptly forgot it and haven’t remembered how since. During my sorority’s recruitment, I was frequently summoned into people’s rooms to give them side braids. Side braids are most effective at getting rid of bangs that you’re constantly playing with or that are getting too long. I also used to be fascinated with the braided updo that Izzie had on one episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
