This must be a love at first sight! If you are looking for a hairstyle that is ideal for special occasions, consider your search over! This tutorial is about the amazing braided half-up look that you have probably seen everywhere you go. You will need only a couple of supplies to achieve this gorgeous look, make sure they are around you before you begin: a brush, hair clippers, some bobby pins, clear hair elastics and a hairspray.
Step 1: As shown on the picture, divide your hair into four parts – two side sections, one at the crown and one at the back of your head. Use clippers to help you divide your hair.
Step 2: Release the crown section and create a small ponytail. Now, it’s time to create an inverted pony effect. Using a couple of fingers, create a space in the hair just above the rubber band. For best results, try to make the hole as close to the elastic band as possible. Start pulling the ponytail down the hole. Here is a little trick: twist the ponytail to make it easier to thread through the hole. Slide up the hair band to tighten for a strong hold.
Step 3: Create an inverted ponytail from the section on your left-hand side.
Step 4: Create an inverted ponytail from the section on your right-hand side.
Step 5: Now, braid the two side inverted ponytails into a traditional French braid. Secure the end of the braids with clear elastics.
Step 6: Lay the first braid at the back of your head, wrapping it around the inverted ponytail that you created in step 2.
Step 7: Lay the second braid at the back of your head, just beneath the other braid.
Step 8: Secure the braided half-up effect with some bobby pins to ensure stability.
Step 9: Add a ribbon or a flower accessory on your hair will make it look softer and more feminine!
