Fall is in full swing, with pumpkins on doorsteps and crunchy leaves underfoot. We’ve been craving cozy plaids and romantic braids. Our stylist pal Reagan (a hair genius) stopped by to point out us this straightforward braided updo. Right here’s the way it’s achieved…
1. Half your hair straight down the center to divide hair evenly for braids. You should utilize a rat-tail comb to get an additional straight half. Collect the hair from the ear ahead on one aspect, leaving out just a few items within the entrance for softness round your face, and divide it into three equal sections.
2-3. Begin braiding by tucking the underside part beneath the opposite two, and proceed the braid (as near the scalp as attainable) by solely including hair to this beneath part, till all hair is used. Safe with a clear elastic.
4. Now repeat on the opposite aspect.
5. For a extra grown-up look, pull aside the outer edges of the braids to loosen and widen them. You can even gently push hair on the roots for further quantity.
6-7. Cross the primary braid behind your head in order that the braid swoops all the way down to the nape of your neck. Fold tail in half and tuck it behind the braid and safe with bobby pins or U-shaped hair pins, that are simpler to cover and maintain your hair higher. (Keep in mind, braids and pinning doesn’t should be excellent. You possibly can all the time alter your pins afterward for a greater placement.)
8. Repeat on the opposite aspect. When you’re completed, a lightweight mist of hair spray will protect your fashion.
