If you’ve noticed, the braids being posted on Pinterest or on your favorite blogger’s website are not like the braids your mom used to do when you were little. The braid we are in love with, and want to share with you is called the “Brunch Braid” or the upside-down French braid with a bun. You can wear this braid anywhere you go, and it’s much more interesting than your go-to hairstyle – the ponytail. This amazing hairstyle keeps your hair tidy and makes you look polished! Here are the step-by-step instructions and what styling tools you will need! Enjoy!
1 strong pony holder
1 thin pony holder
We are pretty sure you have all of these materials at home. Let’s get started!
Step 1: If you are on 2nd or 3rd day hair, great, if not, it’s ok. But it will be great because your hair has had time to spring back if you have styled it in anyway.
Step 2:Flip your head upside down and brush your hair.
Step 3:While upside down, grab a small chunk of hair from the nape of your neck and begin to French braid.
Step 4:Continue the French braid untill you’ve gone two-thirds of the way up your head. Fasten the braid with a thin pony holder.
Step 5:Flip right side up and brush through the top of your hair. Take a strong pony holder and and create a high pony.
Step 6:Take your sock and cut off the toe. Then roll the sock into itself until you have a donut. Then slide the donut over your pony.
Step 7:Pull your hair around the pony so you have the shape of a bun. Begin to fold the excess hair under the bottom of the bun and fasten with a pony holder.
Step 8:Pin bun into place.
Step 9:Spray flyaways with a hairspray like TIGI Rockaholic Fun Times Hairpsray. The hairspray gives awesome hold, yet your hair stays soft and not crunchy!
Step 10:….and there you have it!
