DIY By Request: Braid Tutorial

We posted a photo of this beautiful braided hair style on our instagram page and we got so many requests for a tutorial! One of our fp girls recreated the look for you in this video – enjoy :)

  1. Someone on instagram asked about it being possible to achieve this look with short hair, shoulder length. In case they read this..
    My hair is right above my shoulders and the original photo is of my hair. It’s possible :o) The trick is to use a few more bobby pins. The bun will be smaller, but will have the same over all effect.

  2. that is adorable! I always have trouble braiding my own hair (its blonde, fine and medium length) so it always needs to be just right. I do love the look and am going to try. (if not my stylist will have a new trick to learn and practice) love it!

  3. i must try this! i’m always nervous about starting braids in my hair because i haven’t had a lot of practice… but it looks like now is the perfect time to start practicing !! :) thanks for the tutorial <3

  4. Just tried this this morning with dry hair (my hair is about 2/3 of the way down my back) and this worked great! I put an elastic around the bun too, since my hair is really heavy and long bobby pins wouldn’t keep it together alone. It only took me about 5 min to do on myself! :) Lovely!
