A Pretty "Braided Flower" Hairstyle
I'm thinking this elegant updo would be a perfect hairstyle for Easter Sunday, Prom, Flower Girls, Brides, and other special occasions. We're just in love with this look created by using braids to form a "hair flower!" So.... Spring like!
Flowers and roses made from hair seem to be a very popular trend right now, as I have seen many variations of cute flower buns and updos all over Pinterest, Instagram, and Youtube lately. I'm guessing you have too?
I've been experimenting with several different ways of making flowers out of hair for awhile now. Some have turned out awesome, while others have been a fail for us. I wanted to make sure this tutorial was "doable," practical, and quick. As you'll see in our video below, this actually just starts out as 2 standard french braid pigtails! This classic braided hairstyle is quite easy to create as long as you know how to french braid.

I wanted to show a close up of the way we parted her hair for this updo in case you are curious. I'm not a huge fan of center parts in some hair styles and thought a side part would be more flattering in the front. But I also wanted the braids to somewhat the same thickness (with a center part in the back.) As you can see, the part begins on the side of her face in the front, then goes back at a diagonal to the center of her head and finishes straight down the middle in the back. We actually use this type of parting a lot for pigtails and other styles. Of course, you are welcome to part your hair however you please though!
And... we just had to take a picture to share her new Spring / Easter dress! Isn't it cute? Surprisingly enough, we found this dress a few weeks ago at Costco for a great price. ;)
