Here are my crochet braids start to finish and the bun I put it up in for sleeping. I may trim it...I may not...haven't decided yet. In the meantime...I braided the entire back of my hair and then attached the crochet braids on top of them. I didn't go for length...in fact, its the same length - plus an inch, of my natural hair. I'm just protecting my hair until it grows to the same length. This was my first attempt and is covered in vids 175 - 179 on my youtube page.
