I have just tried this look and love it! It has been so windy out so there was no way I was going to risk a loose style or a half up style and I didn’t fancy a boring updo. When I came across this style I was so excited to try it and it looks amazing. If you are going from yoga to brunch this is a practical out of your sporting and fashion needs. I was happily surprised at how easy it was and despite the windy weather it still looked great at the end of the day. Keep reading to learn how to create this look yourself.
The preparation for this style is actually super easy. The best thing is that the style is heat-free which is great when the windy weather is already drying out your hair. This style is also great on unwashed hair so if you are in a rush or having a lazy day this style is great for you. The only preparation you really have to do is to make sure that your hair is smooth and thoroughly brushed. If you want that extra special touch to backcomb your hair at the front to create a pompadour like style.
Create your base
The key to creating a great base for this style is the pump free smoothness of your locks. Gather you hair into a high ponytail at the top of your crown. To add the extra wow factor I added my Cliphair ponytail extension and wrapped a few strands around the hair tie to hide the join. Brush your ponytail after you have added the extensions so it blends together nicely. Secure at the back with a hairpin.
Your lace braid
Take a two-inch section of hair at the top lefthand side of the ponytail and divide the strands into three parts ready to braid. Cross one of the outside parts over the middle part to create one stitch of a simple french braid. To create this lace braid add a few strands from the ponytail to the top of your braid stitch. Continue your braid and adding extra strands. It is important that you are focusing on creating it so that it will wrap around your ponytail.
Twirl it around
Once the braid has reached the other side of the ponytail it is time to wrap the braid around your ponytail so stop adding extra strands for now. Once you have continued to wrap your braid around the front again you can add more strands again. Repeat the steps you did before remembering to slant your braid in a downward angle so you get a beautiful falling lace look. Once you have braided your hair all the way to the end secure it a hair band then secure your braid and ponytail together. To finish don’t forget to spritz your hair with alcohol-free hairspray. I wouldn’t wouldn’t be cheap with your hairspray if you want any hairstyle to stay in place at the moment.
