Thank you! I’ve been following your progress, too, and it looks great! c:
I tried of a kouple of different things for the braid, and I got the best result from literally pinning a length of decorative rope from the upholstery section at JoAnn in to my hair. The kolor ended up really similar to my hair kolor, so it blends in enough in photos that you kan’t really see it at all, but it does change the silhouette of my hair enough that I feel like it’s worth it.
