For the girls @ the wedding - French braid bun. My daughter taught me the best way to do this is to lay on your stomach on a bed and hang over the edge. Tip: braid past the French braid and be sure to rubber band the end before putting in the messy bun!
I would kill for hair this long and thick -- Beautiful simple braid. To make: french braid a section of your hair on either side. Once they reach the back, braid the rest down. This works better with thick hair.
