Teach Me: French Braid Rolled Updo

I came up with this style in a moment of frustration: I had been trying to make something else work, couldn’t do it, and wound up taking some French braids and rolling it all up into something pretty cute.  Here’s how to get this look!

On either side of your head, take a 2″ section above the ear (leaving some hair in front) and French braid it.  Keep going until you get close to the back of your head.

Tie the two ends together and flip the tail over and through.

Take small sections of the rest of your hair and do the same–roll it over and through the part where your two French braids meet.

When it’s all nicely tucked in, slip a few bobby pins in there to keep it secured.

And that’s it!  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m going to use this style every chance I get this summer.  In fact, don’t be surprised if you see it in an outfit post soon…
