5. Cut remaining excess ribbon.
2. Using your hand, spread your fingers wide, and tease the hair all over to create more texture in the hair. It may look crazy at first, but I promise it look amazing if you go slowly and gently.
3. Start on the left side of head. Take triangle section of hair in front of ear and twist. Place hair toward the back of hair heading towards the center of the head, and secure with bobby pin. Cris-cross with another bobby pin for added security.
4. Continue 1 inch triangle sections of hair, twisting, and pinning until you reach the center area in the back. Make sure you are only twisting the hair from middle of head below the crown, and down.
5. Once you’ve reached the right side of the head you will notice the remaining hair from the crown. You can take section by section twisting the hair toward the center going to your left. Until you achieve your desired look. I left hair loose on the right side to create some softness, and a bit of an assymetrical look.
This is an extremely easy braided updo that looks like you took a long time to do. Sheena has beautiful, longer curly hair which had the perfect texture for this style. I made a French braid on the opposite side of her part. The key to remember is to begin braiding lower and braid not too tightly.
1. Start French braiding the hair on the left side, beginning the braiding lower to create a loose look.
2. Continue French braiding around the head ending a little past the center. Secure the end of the braid with a bobby pin and set to the side.
3. Section off any tendrels you’d like in the front, and begin doing a French braid on the remaining hair on right, and secure braid with a bobby pin.
4. Twist the right braid into the head, securing with bobby pins on the lower right side of the head. This begins the lower side bun look.
5. Take a left braided tail and wrap over the the previous braided bun.
6. Secure any loose hair with bobby pins and spray fly aways with the hairspray. Place gold leaf pendant in hair.
