Halo Braid Tutorial | Oncewed

Steps for braided Frou Frou:

1. Prep hair to give texture and hold. We used Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray- it gives an undone messy look. Start from either side above the ear (or over) and begin braiding with your choice of braid technique.

2. Continue braiding loosely around the shape of the head- bobby pin as you go to keep in place.

3. Complet the braid at either the temples or continue the braid around like a crown. Tuck the end in between the hair and pin.

4. We then took a 1/2 inch frou frou chic ribbon and folded it in half, hooked a bobby pin on it and anchored the ribbon in the hair by weaving in the bobby pin in the hair (hidden).

5. Then we weaved the ribbon through the braid. We used our hands for this step and weaved it in a random pattern. Step back and look at it every once in a while to make sure the ribbon is weaved through symmetrically. Also- make sure the ribbon is loose through the hair to make it look fuller.

6. As you get to your end, tuck the ribbon and pin- then spray to lock in your look!
