The idea for this fun (and slightly silly) video tutorial came after we originally posted Elsa's coronation hairstyle a few months ago and received many comments on that video wondering if there was a way to magically change the updo style into a messy French braid (the same way Elsa's hair changed in the animated Disney movie "Frozen.") The Princess and I thought about it for awhile and decided that maybe it is possible (even without Disney magic) and we wanted to give it a try!
So... watch our video (at the bottom of this post) to see how to go from an updo into a messy French braid in a matter of seconds (both styles shown in the pictures below.)
As mentioned in our video tutorial, please keep in mind... this is not the most practical hairstyle in the world. If you are wanting to wear just the updo or the French braid separately, there are easier and more simplified ways to go about that. IE our first Elsa's coronation bun tutorial. But, we thought this was a fun challenge and if you really want to surprise your friends by removing a few bobby pins and turning your hair into a completely different hairstyle, this one is for you!
- 1 small elastic
- Several bobby pins
- Hairspray, pomade, or gel
- Just a little bit of magic ;)
