For today's hair tutorial we have utilized lace braids, rope braids (or twist braids,) a feather braid technique, and a basket weave criss cross webbing pattern to create a fun dream catcher design.
This half up hairstyle would be great for many occasions (not just Easter!) You could wear this style to school, church, for weddings, the Prom/Homecoming, recitals, communions, etc. I think this would make an adorable flower girl hairstyle as well.

You'll notice we made a "pompadour" with her bangs area by gently pulling the hair forward after placing the elastic in the front section of her hair. We wanted some volume in the front, but of course this step is optional.
If you prefer, you could use lace dutch braids instead of french braids around the outside of the dream catcher (and switch out any type of braids you want for the weaving in the center as well.)
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 2 small or medium size hair elastics, (clear or similar to the color or hair you are working with.)
- Temporary hair ties or clips to hold the braids while you are working (we used 8.)
- Hair products: pomade, gel, hair spray, etc.
