I have been seeing this style all over Pinterest. I didn't want to attempt it because I thought it was waayyy too difficult.
I loved the style though.
I decided to break it down and try the easiest way to make this style. That where the Dutch Braid comes in.
I mention in the video that a dutch braid is the same as a french braid but instead of bringing the sections over each other, you are bringing the sections under each section. (Hope that makes sense :/)
Once you pull on the sides it turns into an elegant looking style - great for weddings and other formal events.
I like to use the Goody Sprial pins for this style because they hold so much of the hair.
Regular bobby pins will also work just fine, you may need a few more in order to secure the hair.
I show 2 ways to wear this updo - a casual down-do and an updo.
