Braid Embellished Half Updo Instructions:
Step 1 – Divide off a section of hair at the crown. Step 2 – Twist the section together, laying it against the head to create a bit of volume. Step 3 – Pin down the twist with bobby pins to hold it in place.
Step 4 – Pick up a 3 wide section of hair directly underneath the pinned section, on the left side of the head.
Step 5 – Braid the section to the bottom in a three-strand braid by crossing the side strands underneath the middle one.
Step 6 – And then gently back comb the end of the braid to keep it from unraveling.
(Repeat the previous steps creating a similar braid not he right side.)
Step 7 – Wrap the braids, one over the other, around the back of the head, placing them underneath the section pinned at the start.
Step 8 – And slide bobby pins into the ends of the braid and along the edges where needed.
Step 9 – Now gently loosen the sides of the braid to make it more full.
Step 10 – Curl the hair with a 1” curling iron from the chin downwards. Spray the hair with a medium-hold hairspray to set the style. And you’re done!
