You might remember seeing this floating braid we posted awhile ago. It has other names such as a fairytale braid, waterfall braid, fall-through braid etc. Anyway, the Princess requested it the other day, so I got to try it out with her shorter hair. I was happy to see we could still do it with her new haircut! I was messing around with it and also discovered an easier way (in my opinion) to create the same type of look. If you were having trouble getting the hang if it the first time, maybe this will work for you!
This is how the "old" technique from the first floating braid video ends up.And this is the new technique. See the difference? It almost looks like an inside-out braid, but it's not.
Of course if you wanted to, you could do either of these techniques on both sides of the head like we did the first time. We call that the medieval princess hairdo at our house as it looks like a hair style you might see at a renaissance fair or festival!
