I run around A LOT for my job as a nanny for two little boys and a newborn baby girl (I usually have the boys, not the girl). In any given two hours, we will play a bit of football, baseball, soccer, golf, basketball, and tennis. It's crazy! And fun :)
So I need my hair back and away from my face, hence the braids.
I started with a Dutch, French braid (braiding in reverse, but also a French braid, so it's Dutch-French braid??) behind my left ear, and another coming across my scalp from right to left.
I pinned them together below my left ear, then twisted them and fastened with a little rubber band. Long hair is so much fun to play with :)
