Upside Down Braid

The Upside Down Braid 

This look is a braid up the back of your head into a messy bun. SO different and super cute.

Begin with your head upside down so your hair is hanging toward the braider:

Grab a small section as shown and begin to french braid down the middle of the head

Once you get halfway up the head, put a small elastic at the end of the braid to secure it.

Flip your head up and style the front as desired.  We pulled Angela's hair into a halfway pulled through ponytail. Make sure you include the elastic rubber band so it doesn't poke out the bottom of the bun.

We used bobby pins to pin the bun different ways to give it more texture. You could also do a top-knot here. 

We added a red bow at the base of the bun in honor of Valentine's Day ;) 
It also draws more attention to the braid! 

We love this look and hope you do too!
