In a vague attempt to feel productive I thought I’d make up a quick and dirty “How-to Draw Braids” thing. I hope you can read my horrendous handwriting…

I hope it’s useful to someone! Braids are so much fun to draw, honestly, and the world deserves more art with pretty braids in it.

Oh, and if you want to draw Elsa-style braids, simply draw the pattern upside down. Easy-peasy!

Let me know if this helped! Show me your results! And remember, practice makes perfect. :)

Imagine Harry finally allowing Draco to attempt to style his hair, but Harry tells him its impossible and Draco insists on trying anyways (“Because Potter, since I’m not an absolute Heathen like you, I actually know how to manage my hair.”).


Then Draco using every spell, hair potion, comb, and hairbrush in his arsenal only to find that the messy curls spring back into place every time. So he finally slams a comb down and proclaims, (“Potter, your hair is just as stubborn as you are!” “Don’t worry Draco, I know you love that.”) and from that day forward Draco will always find himself mindlessly touching his hair when they cuddle (yes they do cuddle).


Bonus: When Draco grows his hair out Harry always insists on braiding and Draco fumes over it (He not so secretly doesn’t mind a bit).

On appropriation of black hairstyles

You know what really irritates me?

The fact that so many of my fellow white women copy black hair styles when there are literally HUNDREDS of different ways in which you can style non-afro textured hair to create a unique look without heat, gel, or a perm.

You want to look different? Great! Why not explore the PLETHORA of ways in which European women have styled their hair over millennia?

British, 1861-1863

Ancient Greece:

Plantagenet era

Renaissance:

Edwardian era:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO STEAL FROM BLACK CULTURE TO DO SOMETHING UNIQUE WITH YOUR HAIR, FELLOW WHITE PEOPLE.

ALL YOU NEED IS TO A LITTLE PATIENCE AND CREATIVITY.

White people wearing dreads, cornrows, or other black hairstyles does not show creativity and uniqueness, it shows A TOTAL LACK THEREOF.

There are COUNTLESS braiding tutorials for hairstyles designed for non-afro textured hair available on the Internet.

A little research even shows how the VIKINGS and the ANCIENT CELTS did their hair.

You wanna stand out? You want to make a personal statement? Make it really personal by putting real time, effort, and creativity into it.
