Braids to the Rescue! {An Up-do Hairstyle}

10:46 AM

You don't have to be an excellent french-braider to accomplish this up-do, you just have to know how to get by when french braiding and that will do! :)
This up-do has rescued me from many of "bad-hair" days, infact, I am wearing it today again for the 4th time this week. Once you get the hang of it, you can do this in about 10min--> so its quick, fun and can be dressed up or down. Hope you like it!
Let's get started:

 4. Braid one side, secure with hair band. 
5. Braid the other side and BOOM, the braiding is done and we are ready to move on.

 I usually add flowers to my hair, but at this point you can either: 
  • choose to leave the up-do as is.
  • play with making a braided bun and secure it with bobby pins.
  • OR add any type of hair accessories you prefer:  a bow, feathers, ribbon, etc. 
**In this up-do I snipped some purple (fake) flowers from a bouquet I picked up at the craft store.

Whichever way YOU choose to complete the look is up to you, but the end result is:

I like this up-do because it takes around 10minutes to finish, (depending on your braiding practice) and can be dressed up or down to be be worn for a casual day, or fancy day :)

Hope you enjoyed this and try it out!

Thanks for stopping by today,
have a great weekend!
