Type 3c curls, light skinned, can I get braids??

I've got 3c hair, some of in there are 4 curls for sure, my hairs all over the place most the time, anyway. I'm growing my hair out after shopping it off really short, and it's in that middle stage and when my hair gets to that place, it's doesn't want to be parted, or styled down, and not even my diffuser can tame it. I was thinking of getting long box braids to control it and such. Buuuuuuut do you think I'd look good in them? I used to get my hair braided when I was a kid and it's been a long time. What do you guys think? I'm a little darker than I look in this picture. :P

They'd look great, but I think your hair just as it is looks great! Why do you want to change it?! You may struggle with the length, but I think it really looks fab.
I agree with Curled One. It looks beautiful! Don't try to tame it, just let it curl the way it wants to!
i am also light-skinned & have 3C curls. I don't think that makes a difference at all in the style. you'd look great with braids, in my opinion. and if you want a little added length, try using natural hair extensions that are close to your real hair's texture and have someone braid them in. here's some curly hair inspiration- http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/seniors/...
