Braid 4-Half Up Bohemian Braids


Braid 4-Half Up Bohemian Braids is the newest version of the Bohemian Side Braids. A traditional feel with a modern twist.

Say hello to your new, jazzed up, half-do.

I love this style because it feels edgy yet chic and so simple you can’t help but think, “Why haven’t I worn this before?!”

If you love the style and try it out I would love to see it, so please tag @missysueblog or #20Braids on Instagram and Twitter!

Here are the steps to creating this awesome ‘do!

1 / Start by taking a section of hair on the lighter side of the part.

2 / Separate this section into three equal pieces for the french braid.

3 / Begin a french braid but pull in skinny strands to create a pieced look.

4 / Only pull in strands until you reach the ear then continue braiding in a single braid until it reaches the center of the back of the head.

5 / Take a skinny section of hair from the heavy side of the part and add it into the braid.

6 / Repeat step five with two or three more strands.

7 / Tie off the braid with a clear elastic band.

8 / Done, dearest!

    I am loving this series on braids. I think I’ll only be able to do a few but they look awesome on you. If only I had my own stylist every day! My stylist did the Elsa (Frozen) braid on my hair the other day when I had it cut (mine is similar in length and color as yours) and it turned out awesome…only wish I could duplicate it at home : ( I absolutely love your blog! Keep up the good work!

    If it took you three time to get it I can’t imagine how many times I’ll have to be disappointed to get it :D but it looks so nice, it really suits you!

    p.s. I tried the french braid from last time I commented, and it’s still way too messy, but at least it has *kind of* the shape I want, so, yeah, your guide was useful! :D
