I know I usually post new tutorials on Tuesday, but things have been more than crazy around here between getting ready for the Pinners Conference & Expo this Friday (more on that in a minute) and getting Halloween costumes finished. I have less time than normal to get costumes done, as our neighborhood has a “Trunk or Treat” on Saturday which means costumes have to be done even earlier than I really have time for! So on with our tutorial today. I love, love, love this one!
Did I mention I’m seriously loving this one!? This will work on long or shorter hair. Check out our video to see how we did it. Hopefully it makes sense & you love this one as much as I do.
Step 1 – Part hair down the middle & to the ears
Step 2 – Make a feather braid on each side
You’ll only want to pull hair out from the bottom side of the braid for this “feather” braid. You can watch our video on how to make a feather braid HERE — but only pull hair out on the one side for this style.
Step 3 – Secure braids in the middle of the back of the head with elastic
Step 4 – Behind the braid on the right start a waterfall twist
Add the “feathers” from the braid into your waterfall twist until you reach the center of the back of the head.
Step 5 – Repeat Step 4 on the left side of the head
Step 6 – Join the waterfall twists from both sides in the middle
Step 7 – Make a micro braid with the strands from your waterfall twist
Step 8 – Tuck the micro braid up and over the elastic
If you want, tie off the end of your micro braid with an elastic before passing it over the top of the elastic. It will come down behind the “pony” that was formed by the braids. It adds a fun look having that little braid to finish things off.
So what do you think? Share, Pin, Like, etc. if you do!
