Ok, enough business! On to our beautiful hairstyle for today. Years ago we’d posted a tutorial on how to create a feather braid and done the braid in a ponytail. We’d feathered both sides of the braid & then wrapped it up into a gorgeous feather braided bun. We’ve also done some other awesome styles using feather braids. But today we’re simply using the feathers to create a beautiful intricate looking hairstyle. It looks amazing, but is fairly simple. Watch our video to see how it’s done.
Step 1 – Divide hair down the center of the head back to the crown
Step 2 – On the right side, part hair from center part to the ear. You only want a small amount of hair
Step 3 – Start a regular 3 strand braid and do one full rotation of the braid
Step 4 – When crossing the bottom section over the middle, remove a small amount of hair before crossing it over
Step 5 – Allow that small amount of hair to just hang below the braid
Step 6 – Finish another full rotation of the braid
Step 7 – Again, when crossing the bottom section over the middle, remove a small amount of hair before crossing it over
Step 8 – Continue this process only removing hair from the bottom section
Step 9 – Braid until it reaches around the back of the head & temporarily secure
Step 10 – Repeat steps 2-8 on the left side
Step 11 – Join the braids in the center with an elastic
Step 12 – Using some pomade or other waxy product, apply it to all the “feathers” hanging down below the braid
Step 13 – Carefully gather all the feathers from the left and right sides bringing them to the center
Step 14 – With another elastic, join the feathers to the hair that hangs down from the braids in step 11
See? It’s gorgeous right? This would be great for a school day or a special occasion. We just love this one!
