Most of the time, I love having long hair, but sometimes it can get overwhelming and I just want it off my face in something other than a messy top-knot. This super-simple braid tutorial looks more interesting than a plain ponytail while still keeping your hair out of the way. Read my other hair tricks and beauty recipes HERE
Divide your hair in half and bring both parts to the front.
Starting from the outside edges of each side, dutch braid your hair all the way down until you run out of hair.
Secure with a hair tie. You will look like you have a bizarre beard in this step. My kids always want me to leave it like this. Haha!
Now slowly flip your hair up and over your head. This should be simple and your loose looking braid will not fall out.
Ta da! See how easy that was? I love how elegant this braid looks. Secure it was hairspray and your ready to go!
Since my hair has lots of layers, I can’t braid it all the way until the end and always run out of hair about 6 inches before my baseline ends. If you are like me, that’s OK.
This braid has become my go-to when my hair is falling flat, I didn’t have time to let it dry all the way, etc. I’m always surprised how well this loose braid stays in tact throughout a busy day. Try this out the next time you are short on time and let me know if you have any questions!
