My first official Halo braid

I was so excited to get someone else to do my hair first of all, and I was even more excited with the outcome of this beautiful halo braid. I loved it, but it only lasted about 4 days because it wasn’t braided very tight and I’m natural (I imagine that had something to do with it, maybe). Nonetheless, I will be getting this again just braided a bit tighter. It was so fun, simple, and cute.
