I would absolutely love to know how to do this following hairstyle: it’s the third picture, on the right.
Could you possibly tell me how to do it? thank you!! 🙂
Here at Hair Romance we love a braid or two.
I haven’t seen this style before so I was happy to try and figure out how it was achieved.
It’s a backwards braid (or inside out braid) that’s only adding in sections from the top. It’s done by braiding the top half of your hair around each side to meet at the back to make this super cute half-up-half-down hairstyle.
Don’t worry, I’ve broken it down even further with some how to step by step pics below.
What is a backwards (or inside out) braid?
Normally with French braids you have three sections that weave together over the top. Backwards is simply weaving together from underneath. You still add in sections just braid underneath and this leaves a plait on top.
Step 1 – Part your hair – I did mine on the side but this style is also cute with a centre part.
Step 2 – Take a section at the front and split into three.
Step 3 – Plait together in a French braid, bringing the sections in from underneath.
Step 4 – Braid in section from the top only, leaving the rest of your hair to hang down under the braid.
Step 5 – Finish the first side in a plait and secure with an elastic.
Step 6 – repeat steps 2-5 on the other side.
Step 7 – Tie the two sides together with an elastic. Hide the elastic by wrapping a section of hair around it and pinning it underneath with a bobby pin.
Step 8 – Loosen up the braid to give it a messier finish and you’re ready to go.
I think my braid is a little too neat compared to the original picture but both styles work.
