My hair is long now!
Long enough to make braids at least.
My mum always wanted to make these at me when I was a teenager and I hated it, I thought I looked so geeky. Mum is coming here next week and is thrilled about being able to braid my hair again.
Update: Here is a tutorial I found, I hope it's helpful (my only tip is to do it without looking in a mirror, but I guess some practise on someone else is best to start with).
