A clever mum has gained more than 100,000 fans on Instagram by posting pictures of the incredible braids she creates for her daughter.

Shelley Gifford, from Melbourne, Australia, braids her daughter Grace's hair every morning and posts photos of the intricate hairstyles on her Instagram account, Pretty Little Braids.
这位妈妈名叫Shelley Gifford,来自澳大利亚墨尔本,她每天早晨都会为女儿格蕾丝编辫子,并且将这些精美的发型拍摄成图片,发布到一个名叫“小辫子萌萌哒”的Instagram页面上。

'She’s always had her hair braided, since she was a toddler,' Ms Gifford told Daily Mail Australia. 'She’s perfect, she sits so still because she doesn’t know any different. It's her morning quiet time.'

The mum says that generally it only takes her 15 to 20 minutes to do Grace's hair before school. If she's attempting something more difficult or time consuming she leaves it for the weekend.

Ms Gifford said she always loved braiding but really got creative with it when she discovered the online braiding 'community'.

She then started her own Instagram account and Facebook page to post pictures of the styles she did on Grace's hair, but never expected the accounts to be so popular.

She said that whilst the account has generated a lot of attention online, in real life she tries to keep it 'low key' for Grace and make sure the photos focus on the styles and not her young daughter.
