I just joined.  I wonder if anyone can give me step by step instructions on how I can French braid my own hair, I don't know how to French braid at all.  Also I'm just starting to grow out my bangs and wondered if anyone has tips on how I can keep the hair out of my face that doesn't involve hair clips or those things that push all your hair back, I don't like how they look on me.

That's a complicated way.

The way I learnt was trial and error. It actually got easier the longer my hair got. What you have to do is basically get three little sections from the top of your head, and be able to visualise the basic braiding technique (ie: left one to the middle, right one to the middle...repeat)...but each time you pick up a section, you pick up some loose hair underneath the section at the same time. This will be quite difficult at first -- do it while you have a lot of time on your hands! And you may find your arms getting tired. If you take it slowly, and think it out logically, and make sure you carefully pick up the new hair and pull any loose strands out of the way...you should be okay. Trial and error!
