This week’s video tutorial was a reader request. I wore this style in a couple of outfit posts and the hair was a lot more eye catching than I thought it would be. It’s so easy that I usually wear it on my lazy days XD
Hope you enjoy!
Welcome to another hair tutorial!
This one is a viewer request from an outfit post I did a while ago while I was wearing it!
Start with some clean, brushed hair and divide it into two sections.
Take the first section, divide it into three sections, then plait it down to the very bottom.
Make sure you start the plait fairly high up, just behind the top of your ear.
You want the plaits to be quite tight otherwise the end result won’t stick up correctly.
Now secure it in place with a hair tie at the end!
Now repeat on the other side!
Plait! Plait like a swiss mountain girl in a fairy tale!
Secure it in place and you’re halfway there! Or you know, leave it like this and call it a day! Lazy win!
Now take the first plait and twist it backwards as tightly as you feel comfortable.
Then roll it around it’s self into a little bun and then pull the hair tie off at the end.
Once it’s off, continue wrapping the hair tightly around the base.
As you go, pull the plait out a little bit and it will form a twist, like this!
Once you’re finished put a hair tie back on it to keep that sucker in place!
The end result should look like this.
Now (obviously) repeat on the other side!
Twist it backwards…
…roll it up on itself…
…pull it out a little bit…
…and hair tie it in place!
Adjust it as necessary so they are the same length.
Accessory time! You can go big with a hair flower but I like to wear this with a simple pearl headband.
Tadaa! Cute, adorable and a little bit different to plain old buns or plain old plaits.
This looks a bit different because of my gradient, but it looks GREAT with dark hair colours.
Let me know if you give this one a go and thanks so much for watching, bye!
