she-shell

she braids sea shells into her hair.   much easier to say but i still get tongue tied.   

there was no plan, (rarely is), but i love how it turned out anyway.   
my tom boy princess has some short stuff in front that we are trying to grow out so i have to braid the front.     
 i did 2 sets of offset braids along the hair line stopping at the base of the head.   i almost always under-braid, which is what makes the braids stick up off of the head.   i just like the look better, and it's now easier for me than regular braiding.  
after the first ring, i did another on one side.  on the other side, i brought small pieces from just the opposite side.   i love the way it looks with the hair crossing like this.
