Hi everyone! Just wanted to post up my braided fringe hair tutorial, which is the look I had for my Rock & Republic Eyeshadow review in my last post. I've worn this look and similar hairstyles a lot (like in my Smokey Eyes for Monolids tutorial) and get requests for a how-to pretty much every time it comes up so here it is!
The only products I used for this look are:
1 latex hair tie (comes in clear and black to match your own hair color)
2 bobby pins (I also recommend matching this with your hair color)
After a bit of investigation, I found that this exact style of backwards braid is called a "Dutch Braid". For the braided fringe, I really think the dutch braid looks cuter than the traditional hidden braid, don't you think? It looks more like a headband which I really like.
Here are some variations that I've done in the past:
headband-style strip braid
loose, large dutch braid with side pony
fringe strip braid with feather headband
Hope this tutorial wasn't too complicated! It's a bit tricky to explain but it's super quick and easy once you get the hang of it. If you guys end up trying it out, please share a pic to my Facebook page gallery. I love seeing the gorgeousness and creativity of you girls (and guys). Hehe.
Have a good weekend!
