My Favorite Braid

my favorite braid-14It's been awhile since I did a hair tutorial, but as my hair is getting longer and we're heading towards warmer months (fingers crossed anyway!) I'm getting excited to play with my hair more and try out some new styles. Today's style isn't new for me, but rather a favorite and I'm not really sure what to call this braid other than one of my favorite styles--it's soft and romantic and like so many of my styles--super easy!my favorite braid (click-through for the full tutorial( Step one: keep a small section of hair free on either side of your head and tie the rest of your hair back into a simple low ponytail.
Step two: braid your ponytail and tie off with an elastic.
Step three: pancake and pull apart your braid until it is very full and loose.
Step four: take the section of hair on your left side and loop it loosely around the top of your ponytail and pin in place.
Step five: repeat on the right side.
my favorite braid-15 That's it! Add a silky bow and your braid is soft, sophisticated perfection! The extra bits of hair at the top just add a very loose and soft look to the braid and make it a bit more chic than when the elastic is visible. I love this braid because it's so simple, but feels and looks so romantic and pretty.

  3. So pretty! I have a pixie cut and miss being able to do braids like this.

    1. I remember those days! I had a pixie cut for years (you can see it in the archives); I still like the idea of short hair and keep cutting my hair, but then I get excited when it finally gets long enough for braids again! I'm trying really hard not to cut it this time! :p

  4. Your braid is so pretty

  5. Beautiful! Your tutorials are such a delight to read through. My hair is finally getting long enough that I can start having fun with styling my mine. I'm wondering what hair dye you're currently using and if you touch up the regroath yourself? Happy Easter Rebecca! xx

  6. I love this hair color a lot! The hairstyle that you choose looks very easy ! xoxo
