Braided Updo and Flower Crown features a lace braids on each side of the part that connect into french braids and finish in a braided bun. The flower crown was added to give the look a more feminine touch and I really love how it turned out. The perfect kind of loosely braided updo.
How to get the look:
Step 1 / Begin with a center part.
Step 2 / Continue the part down the back of the head and tie off the right side.
Step 3 / Grab a flower crown and place it on top of the head, about 3 inches back from the hairline, tie it in the back.
Step 4 / Take a section of hair on the left side right next to the part and divide it into three pieces.
Step 5 / Begin a regular braid crossing the side strands over the middle strand.
Step 6 / Continue braiding a lace braid by bringing in hair from the front and adding it into the braid.
Step 7 / Once the braid reaches past the ear, continue braiding a french braid by pulling in hair from both sides.
Step 8 / Continue braiding until it reaches the back of the head.
Step 9 / Braid the hair a little farther down, in a regular braid, and tie off the end.
Step 10 / Repeat steps 4 through 9 with the right side of the head.
Step 11 / When both braids meet, pull all the hair up into a ponytail.
Step 12 / Divide the ponytail into two halves.
Step 13 / Braid each half into a regular style braid.
Step 14 / Take one braid, wrap it upwards and clock-wise creating a bun. Pin off the braid so it stays in place.
Step 15 / Repeat step 14 with the other braid to create an intricately braided bun.
