Whether you are preparing to go to a wedding, to a garden party or you just want to celebrate spring and summer, a half up French braid messy bun is a beautiful way to make the most of the season’s fresh blossoms. In fact, half-up half-down hairstyle is a great way to adopt the flower wearing trend the spring months. It looks best on rough, undone hair, but a pretty braid can look perfect with them too. Are you excited already? Let’s start this step-by-step tutorial!
Step 1: Brush through the hair to remove any tangles then part the hair so you can have the crown section secured into a low ponytail at the back.
Step 2: Separate the section into three small pieces. Now, braid this ponytail into the traditional three-strand braid. Try sprinkling some volume powder on your braid to really widen it.
Step 3: Grab your braid and roll it up to form a beautiful bun. For best results, start with a small circle and keep wrapping the braid around it. Next, use bobby pins to secure the braid in place. If you have heavier hair, you may need to use more pins to keep the braid from falling down.
Step 4: Now braid two similar braids on each side of your head.
Step 5: Falling the same technique, coil the braid into the same bun. Slide bobby pins into the bun to secure it in place.
Step 6: Take the final braid and secure it into a bun as well. Slide bobby pins into the bun to secure it in place. Mist the finished look with a medium-hold hairspray to set it. As you can see, this half-up half-down look can take you on a romantic getaway or get you through that important business meeting!
