An Elegant Updo Featuring An Upside Down French Braid, Curls, and Twists
The Princess wanted a "Fancy Schmancy" updo hairstyle for a wedding we attended recently. And, we have been receiving quite a few requests for Prom Hairstyles, so I thought this was a perfect opportunity for a formal updo tutorial!
We have also been wanting to do a hairstyle featuring an upside down french braid for awhile now. And, we finally got around to it! If I were to do a backwards braid like this again, I would make the french braid continue up a little higher on her head, or make a smaller bun though. As you can see, the french braid is barely visible here and kind of disappointing.
This would be a cute updo hairstyle for many formal occasions: Prom, Homecoming, a flower girl, communion, dance, wedding, church, Easter, etc. I think leaving a few curls (or ringlets) left cascading down gives it an "Elizabethan" or old fashioned, romantic, Renaissance Princess look. Of course, if you don't like the hair hanging down, you could definitely pull everything up into the bun.
