Lace Braided Half-Up | Short Hairstyles

Hey everyone! Today I have this pretty, lace braided half-up to show you.

As you can see it works great on short hair, (my younger sister is modelling for me today) but it’ll work fine for any length! Don’t you love those type of hairstyles?

Items needed: 2 hair ties, {optional: topsy tail tool} || Time: 5-10 minutes || Difficulty: easy-medium

Step-by-step instructions:

1.) Begin by parting your hair down the middle (you can do a side part but the braids won’t look as even. )

2.) Next, take a section of hair from the front of your head:

3.) You’ll want to divide it into 3 even section and begin a lace braid. Basically its like a normal french braid, only in this case you won’t be adding in hair from the bottom side of the braid.

Be sure to anchor the braid away from your head a bit so it doesn’t end up following your part in a straight line, (you’ll see how it should look in the pictures.) When you reach about the middle of the back of your head stop adding in hair from the top and continue with a normal plait, secure the ends with an elastic.

4.) Now go back and pancake the bottom edges of the braid by tugging on the outside bumps..Your braid should look something like this when you’re done:5.)  Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side of your head…6.) Now secure the two braids together at the back or your head like this:

7.) Grab your spare hairtie and secure on top of the last one, only on the last loop don’t pull the hair through all the way (just have a small bump) and leave it like that. Then, pick up a section of hair from behind the tied-off section and wrap it around the hairtie to hide it. Use the topsy tail tool to pull the ends of the hair wrap  through or bobby pin them in place.

Annd you’re done! Here’s the finished look:
