Hey everyone! Therese here,
I’ve got a nice DIY friendly post that I’m showing you all today, one that I did on myself and quite liked. There could be many variations to it, so feel free to play around with it as you like 🙂 I used a four-strand braid for the top part because I wanted something a bit more full than a French braid, but either could work 😉
Also thank you to my sister for taking the photos for me! 🙂
~Items needed: hair brush, 3 hair ties.
~Time: 5-10 minutes
1). Brush hair well. Then, gather the top layer of your hair and tie it up at the back of your head with a hair tie.
2). Next, divide hair into four section. You are about to do a four-strand braid, if your hair gets as frizzy as my hair gets sometimes, you may want to wet it down a bit (or add some styling product) to make it easier to braid.
3). Do a four strand braid until you reach your neck. Continue a little further and tie off. (Optionally you could do it all the way down if you wanted a four strand braid the whole way, but for this hairstyle I’m changing the bottom half to a French braid.)
4). Gather hair into a low ponytail, and pancake the top braided section a little bit.
5). Untie the tie from the four strand braid. Using that same section of hair, divide into three strands, ready for the plait. You could also leave this hairstyle as is, at this point.
6). Plait the section of hair you just divided into three pieces all the way to the bottom, then tie off with an elastic.
Aaaand you’re done!
Adding flowers or hair accessories also look nice with this style!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, let me know if you’ll try it and what you think of it in the comments!
You can enter the giveaway here to win one of Clare’s scrunchies, I reckon using one for the ponytail part of this hairstyle would look really cool!
