If You're Obsessed With Braids, You Need to Follow These Instagram Feeds

True story: when I first learned to french braid, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I was so obsessed, I wanted to run around and braid the hair of all my friends (and of all my dolls), and sit for hours in front of the mirror doing my own. I was around eight, and because I was the only person I knew that could french braid, I felt superspecial.

Despite my plaiting skills, I've discovered that 16 years later, I am not the braiding genius that I thought I would be. Thankfully, there are others whose styling careers have flourished a bit more than my own — and they're sharing their work via Instagram.

From box and fishtail plaits to cornrows and woven waterfalls, the types of braids these stylists have mastered are infinite. While we're a bit envious, we're not complaining, just as long as they continue to let us ogle their creations from our iPhone screen. Get your double-tapping thumbs ready and read on.
