  16. You clever teacher!! You really get that we all learn differently .. it doesn't matter what we're learning, we all have different learning styles. So thank you!! I'm walking around with my new fishtail braid and getting lots of compliments .. I'm soooooo tired of my plain side-plait or pony .. which until today I found easiest because my hair is so long it's too hard to hold my hair up in the middle at the back, so all my styles need to be on the side … and now I have a new one!! Thanks so much .. I've subscribed so I can't wait to see more of your vidz. Too cool!!
