The best part of this breezy updo is that, it can also be worn dressy, for bridal parties and weddings by simply weaving in a few sunny and cheerful flowers into the hair.
My photo: No products were used, and I have lots of layers. :)
Before we start, some helpful tips:
- Doing this on damp hair will make the look more neat.
- Applying some soft hair gel or wax to the ends of the hair before braiding, will help it stand up better in the hottest humidity.
- Best scenario is to blow dry the hair completely on the roots so that you don't look like a 7 year old girl, and dampening and waxing/geling the ends right before braiding it. :)
- Make sure your hair spray is the soft - matte kind like this, and it is especially important to minimize any flyaways around the face for any fancy occasions like a wedding. Yes, I meant for brides and bride's maids updos. :)
You can watch this on YouTube - which will be posted at the bottom of this page. :)
Step 1:Prep (gel for damp hair braiding) or Curl your hair (1/2 inc rod works best) if you're doing this on dry hair. If you're doing this on completely dry hair and want to look neat, apply some hair wax to the ends of your hair.
Step 2:Split your hair into 2 sections, making sure to leave out some hair around your bangs.
Step 3:Clip one side away so that it doesn't interfere with the side you're Dutch or French braiding.
Step 4:Braid both sides (pigtail braid), making sure that you're fluffing the braids so that they don't look too tight. Tie the ends.
Step 5:Swing one of the braids to the back of your head and pin it to the lower back, following the shape of your head.
Step 6:Secure the other braid to the lower back.
Step 7:Tuck in the ends of both French Braids so that it doesn't show.
All done! Just smooth down fly-aways if you want, or look relaxed and carefree with some pieces sticking out. :)
