Half Up Side French Braid is a French braid that runs to the left side of the head to a lace braid and then to a regular braid.
I recently wore a similar style to this Instagram image, but when I sat down to film the tutorial, I ended up changing it a bit. For this version, I pulled the hair on the back all the way over the head and keep the pieces slightly hidden under the hair up. It gives him a softer, more romantic feeling.
I really love this style, but I can definitely see that I wear both versions the whole time.
Now I have to mention these roots! Holy … talk about Ombre! I did not make my roots in advance!
If you look at my new hair care video, you know I’m waiting 3 months to highlight my hair, but I seriously consider growing it into a full ombre … or is it somber now?
The half side French braid:
- Start with one side piece and take a piece of hair on the heavy side of the piece.
- Divide this section into three smaller sections.
- Cross the back over the middle and cross the front over the middle.
- Cross the back over the middle and bring a small section of hair under the braid.
- Cross the front piece over the middle and bring another small section, just under the beginning of the braid.
- Repeat steps four and five until the braid reaches the top of the left ear.
- Once the braid reaches the ear, bring only hair on the back of the head, this track directly over the back of the head.
- When all hair is in place and the braid is on the neck, braid the hair back to a regular braid.
- Tight the end with a transparent rubber band.
- Carefully loosen the braid by pulling on the hairline. This gives the mesh a softer look.
- Finish with a 1 “curling iron hair and sprizzing all overland trips with hair spray.
