Ornate Braided Updo was the best choice of 20 braids try-outs, # 4, and has earned its own tutorial post.
It was originally planned to be included in the 20 Braids for Spring series, but was cut because I did not think you would like the hairstyle that much. Boy, I was wrong, haha!
This hairstyle came about by chance during one night while I was playing with my hair. At the end of the night, when all the make-up is washed away, I finally stand in my bathroom and try out random hairstyles that my mind has devised all day long.
It’s always fun to train and I was excited to share this with you, so I’m glad it was so high!
Let me tell you, I recently dyed my hair a little bit darker. Did you notice? I added a few dark blond strands because I’m still trying to grow my hair out a bit, and I’m giving up the highlights to keep them healthier.
I love to be blonde, but in the end I decided that it was better to have long hair than blond hair. So, tell me, what do you think?
Here are the steps! ( You knew that was right? ) (:
Step 1 / Start by separating hair from ear to ear in reverse U-shape.
Step 2 / Fix the upper part to work with it later.
Step 3 / With the bottom section facing down, place a few pins over the hair, near the top, to give the rolled part a handle.
Step 4 / Take a 1 “hair piece on the right side and roll your hair up, loop it and slide a needle to secure it.
Step 5 / Repeat step 4 with the rest of the hair until everything is rolled up to create a looped bun.
Step 6 / Next, let the upper part of the hair.
Step 7 / Take a piece of hair near the left ear and divide it into three sections.
Step 8 / Start a braid that cuts every outer strand across the middle.
Step 9 / Bring a strand of hair from the top of the head to create a lace border.
Step 10 / Continue braiding until the braid reaches the right ear and all hair is pulled in.
Step 11 / Braid the hair to a normal braid.
Step 12 / Bind the end with a clear, elastic band.
Step 13 / Now place the braid directly under the braid so that it lies directly over the rolled knot.
Step 14 / Place the pins between the braids to fix them.
Step 15 / Snare the tail back and put it under the braid.
Step 16 / Attach loose parts of the braid.
Step 17 / Next, grab a fun flower clip and slide it onto the right side of the braid, above the knot.
Step 18 / Finish with hairspray and you’re done!
I hope you love the look! I know for sure (:
