This week we have combined a pompadour, some regular braids, and a unique knotting technique to create this cute half-up hairstyle and design, which we think resembles a fancy lacy umbrella! This fun hairstyle would be great for school, church, recitals, communions, weddings, special occasions, etc.
The overall shape and concept of this hairstyle is similar to a few of our past favorites, which we have shown on our blog previously.... the "arrowhead braid" and the "fairy wings braid."
Umbrella Lace Hairstyle, Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
This hairstyle is actually quite easy to create, but as shown in our tutorial (and depending on the texture of your hair) you will probably need to add some water, gel, pomade, or other product before making the knots (to help control flyaways and keep things looking neat and smooth.) We noticed as this style dries, the design really "pops" and looks so beautiful! She received tons of compliments the day she wore this hairstyle. I'm sure you will too!
Supplies needed to recreate this look:
- 3 small, clear elastics.
- Water, gel, or pomade, to help control frizz and flyaways.
- Finishing hairspray.
