Elegant dutch braids with a lovely braided rosette accent!
Today's braided hairstyle tutorial is quite fancy and glamorous.... very princess like. I love hairstyles which incorporate flowers made from hair, especially for summer. I can see this as a perfect flower girl hairstyle for a summer wedding!
If you have spent any amount of time online looking at hairstyles, you have probably come across an image of a cute little girl wearing this hairstyle (which we have tried to recreate in today's tutorial) it has been floating around on Pinterest, Instagram, Wehearit and Tumblr for several years now. Unfortunately we are unsure of who the original creator is, as it has been shared so many times with no traceable link that we could find. Over the years, this style has been requested on our Facebook page and in email (time and time again) so we are bringing our recreation to you today!
I think this would be an adorable hairstyle not just for flower girls, but for weddings in general (bridesmaids, wedding guests, maybe even for a bride!) Or a hairstyle for the Prom / Homecoming. This hair design is dressy and classy, almost vintage looking. I just love it.
And although the braiding seems fairly intricate at first glance, this design is really not much more than 2 inverse braids. If you can dutch braid, this should be fairly easy for you to recreate! In the original hairstyle, the rose was placed a little higher up on the head (& further to the left.) The Princess wanted the rose placed more towards the back, rather than on top of her head... so we extended the braid on the left side a little bit further than what was shown in the original photo. Of course, you can place the rose wherever you like it best. ;)
- 2 small clear elastics
- Several bobby pins
- Pomade, hair wax, or gel to help control flyaways (optional)
