Just as an update, I don’t know if I will be able to get the last post up on Wednesday, but we’ll see. 🙂 If you don’t see it then, keep an eye on my blog — it’ll come eventually! Promise!! 😉
Here’s a peak at what we are creating in today’s tutorial. Let’s dive right in. 🙂
Step 1: Curl Your Hair
This hairstyle can be started either with your natural wave or curled hair. Because my sister has such thick, straight hair, I wanted to start with some texture in the hair, so I curled everything with the medium-sized barrel from the Titan3 set, knowing and expecting to redo the curls with a smaller barrel once I finished. But if you have natural curly hair or hair that has a good wave to it, than feel free to just start with that. 🙂
Step 2: Section the Hair Off
Once you have the top section of your hair separated and pinned up, take a 1 inch section of hair near the front hairline. This is where your french braid is going to begin. 🙂
Step 3: Begin French Braiding
Now that you’ve sectioned off the top section from the bottom, you’re going to french braid all the way around the back of the head, with the bottom section.
Step 4: Secure the Braid
Once you reach the other side of the head with your braid, secure it with an elastic tie and pins, if needed.
Step 5: Section off Bangs
Now that the braid is secure, take down the top section and clip away the front hair line (or if you have bangs, clip those away).
Step 6: Smooth and Twist Top Section
Smooth out any bumps across the crown of your head and begin twisting it slightly right above where you tied the braid. Situate it so that you are hiding the elastic band. Secure with as many pins as you want or need. (I recommend these pins from Sally’s Beauty Supply. They’re really strong and work well. 🙂
Step 7: Twist Bangs Back and Pin
Now take whatever hair that was clipped out of the way (your bangs, or if you don’t have bangs, drape the hair back so that it gives you the look of bangs) and pin it back. I twisted the hair slightly as I drew it back and pinned, but however you’d like to do this, that’s up to you. Make this hairstyle your own!
Step 8: Decorate!
I always use my Lilla Rose hair accessories when I do a hairstyle, and for this one I used the hair pins. But decorate and accessorize any way you wish. 🙂
And this is how the hairstyle looks!!! 😀 Hope y’all give it a try!!
