How to Get an Elegant French Braid Updo
Suitability: this style works best on long hair, with fine- to-medium texture.
To achieve the look, you will need: pomade, hairspray, comb, brush, bobby pins, and small elastics (either clear or match to hair)
Step 1: Brush hair. Start with a side part, and add pomade to control flyaways.
Step 2: Starting at the top corner of the forehead, on the side with the most hair, create a regular French braid, loosely curving around the head as you braid. Stop right by the ear on the opposite side you started on and continue braiding the tail.
Step 3: Loosen the braid slightly, and then secure the end with an elastic.
Step 4: Swirl braid up and around to form a flower illusion.
Step 5: Pull pieces loose as needed to create more of a flower look. Pin hair in place and hairspray.
