About time I tried the "Literally every girl on Pinterest"-boxer braid style. I don't see that style a lot in the wild, but it sure is popular online!
My main worry with this was the center part. I parted it ever so slightly to the side to avoid elongating my face and bringing too much focus on my chin.
The front part got a bit too big, so I lost some of the "crown" effect.
I didn't manage to braid tightly enough, so it sagged a bit instead of being as tight as I wanted. Also, it would have looked nicer with the braids placed further back towards the parting.
The parts got a bit too small on one side, so it ended up sagging at the neck too.
It was surprisingly hard to "tilt" my normal braiding pattern: I felt I had to think about what I was doing a lot, instead of just going on muscle memory.
Well, overall for a first try at a new style, I'm fairly happy with it. I think "I don't hate it" is well enough for a new style-attempt.
Overall, I liked the effect.
Not bad for a first attempt!
