Melbourne, Australia resident Shelley Gifford has been a huge fan of braiding hair for as long as she can remember. When her daughter, Grace, expressed interest in the practice, Shelley was more than happy to adorn her hair with lovely French and Dutch braid designs.

It wasn’t until Shelley and Grace discovered a social media post about many different intricate braids that they decided they needed to take things to the next level.

Throughout her life, Shelley Gifford of Melbourne, Australia has had a passion for braiding hair.

Naturally, her daughter, Grace, became her model.

       
 
Every day, Shelley would try different designs in Grace’s hair before school, as long as it could be done in about 15 to 20 minutes.
As her styles became more and more intricate, however, she often had to wait until the weekend.

But Grace doesn’t mind. She’s had her hair braided for so long that she’s always patient with her mom.
