Unbelievable the many styles of braids!
A Melbourne mum has gained more than 100,000 fans on Instagram by posting pictures of the incredible braids she creates for her daughter.
Shelley Gifford, from Melbourne, Australia, braids her daughter Grace’s hair every morning and posts photos of the intricate hairstyles on her Instagram account, Pretty Little Braids.
‘She’s always had her hair braided, since she was a toddler,’ Ms Gifford told Daily Mail Australia. ‘She’s perfect, she sits so still because she doesn’t know any different. It’s her morning quiet time.’
The mum says that generally it only takes her 15 to 20 minutes to do Grace’s hair before school. If she’s attempting something more difficult or time consuming she leaves it for the weekend.
Ms Gifford said she always loved braiding but really got creative with it when she discovered the online braiding ‘community’.
It was in April 2014 that mum Shelley Gifford discovered a world of braiding on Social Media. She found accounts that were solely set up to show hairstyles that mums had created on their daughters. Loving what she saw, she started her own Facebook and Instagram braiding accounts. Ms Gifford started following other hair and braiding accounts: asking questions and continuously watching video tutorials. As well as attended braiding and up-do workshops. She is totally hair obsessed now, finding it challenging to create something new and unique.
