Ghana Braids Are Back

One of my favourite hair styles of all time has to be Ghana braids. I had this style done while my hair was in transition to being natural and I wanted to keep it in a protective style.  I absolutely love this style - It's so Regal and Elegant.

This style can be done for a bridal look, perhaps for a traditional celebration as it has that type of 'African Queen' look to it, which would be suitable for the occasion. One of my friends did my braids for me and I asked her to add extra length to the ends of each braid, so that it reached almost waist length on me and then I created my own donut for the bun so that it was as big and secure as I wanted it to be.

Statement necklaces are such a great investment.

This style could so be a bridal updo using Ghana braids.

I created this outfit around this red top which I choose to restyle by wearing it upside down to give it a peplum look. On another occasion I used the same top to modest-fy a one shoulder dress  an idea for you ladies who do not think you have enough coverage on a one shoulder item and want it to be more modest but without having to put a blazer or bolero on. Video available below.

Thank you to everyone who has reposted this Ghana braids photograph and tagged me over the years, I have been so shocked at how many of you really liked this style and have wanted to do the same look. I used to believe that having hair like this may give me a really 'fresh' look but it is SO encouraging to see African hair being celebrated and liked by so many ladies. 

Continue to celebrate who God made you to be. He makes no mistakes and the features you have are SO perfect. True beauty has SO little to do with how we are outwardly presented but has everything to do with the condition of our hearts. We are honestly only as beautiful as our heart is. 
Let Jesus Christ love you, change you and teach you to live righteous.
