We have combined elements of a waterfall twist braid variation and a braided rose or flower to create this elegant and fancy half updo ponytail. I'm thinking this hairstyle has a slightly vintage, medieval or renaissance feel to it.
Although this style looks quite intricate, it is actually not extremely difficult to complete. If you can do a waterfall twist, a standard 3 strand braid, a bun, and a ponytail, you can do this.
My favorite part of this hairstyle is how the individual strands from the waterfall twist surround and showcase the braided flower bun in the center, which reminded us of a flower corsage. So beautiful!

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 3 medium/small clear elastics
- 4-6 temporary hair ties or clips to keep things from unraveling while you work.
- Several bobby pins. We used miniature pins from Sally Beauty Supply.
- Pomade, wax, or gel to help with flyaways.
