Hi my cuties,
Welcome to the second holiday special and today I’ll be doing another hair tutorial. I picked two unique hairstyles, both can be worn to dressier events and the one you can turn into a more casual updo. May I add both are very easy. So lets get started:
Knoted Braid Updo
(Excuse some of my pictures, I’m a little bit awkward infront of a camera, but I’m hoping that it will eventually go away.)
5.) Take the bottom piece cross it over the top one and then through the loop, as if you’re making a knot. Then pull. The bottom piece now becomes the top one and the top one becomes the bottom one. This is really important. Without this the braid won’t work.
8.) Now it gets hard. Part your remaining hair into three same sized sections. Start with the middle on. Grab it with your one hand and twist it upward, so that your hair is looped around your hand. Then pin it, but leave a tiny bit of hair hanging out at the bottom. Repeat this with all three sections.
Voilà, thats your updo. Now if you want a more casual hair style, instead of pinning the braid to the back of your head, you grab all your hair with the braid to a messy ponytail. This is personnaly my favorite way to wear it.
4.) Now pin the braid into place.
And thats the post for today guys, I hope you enjoyed my little extra post. I am a christmas person and even though Advent kinda just started I’ve been having so much fun.
Now I have a challenge for you. If you decide to do one of the hair styles I showed today, please send me the pic via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be choosing the 3 best pictures to be featured on my blog on the 25th of December. So don’t be shy!
Now on a more serious note. A lot of you probabley know that Nelson Mandela past away and this makes me really sad, since I’ve always loved him because I love South Africa. It has always been my home. So here I just want to pay my respects to him, we lost a great man and an amazing leader. So thank you Mandela for everything that you did for South Africa and for the world. You’ll be sorely missed.
