Brigitte Bardot Mermaid Braid

Brigitte Bardot Mermaid Braid is a combination of the Brigitte Bardot Half Updo and the Half Up Mermaid Braid.

I love both those hairstyles so much and thought it would be such a neat idea to combine them together. Mermaid braids are so huge right now and totally blew me away the first time I saw one. I have definitely gone a little crazy throwing them into as many hairstyles as I possibly can.

If you love them as much as I do then you should try out this one because it is just as fun to wear, especially with a pretty red bow tied at the bottom!

    I might actually be able to pull off a shorter version of this style. You had me at the ribbon though. Too adorable.

    Missy Sue, I just stumbled across your blog and am in love! I have long, dirty, blonde hair was considering cutting it until tonight – now I have your fun styles to help me fall in love with my hair again.

    Can I ask if you wax or tweeze your brows? They look great!
