A couple of nights ago I was scouring through Youtube hair tutorials in hopes of designating a hair style to wear to a wedding I am attending this weekend. I am subscribed to a woman named Missy Sue on Youtube, and she offers absolutely beautiful hair styles that can be completed at home with minimal tools and supplies. Feel free to check out her channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDF8TA3VX6yO794hBmBwQow
Missy had posted a tutorial regarding how to recreate the look of a flower undo in your hair as part of a half-up, half-down style. I attempted to conduct her tutorial, however it was extremely tricky to do for me personally and so I decided to adapt the tutorial to better suit my own skills.
Here is my version of Missy’s tutorial, which I refer to as a braided spiral half-up, half-down look:
Begin by sectioning off the top quarter of your hair to create a half-up ponytail. You can choose to have a part in your head, or you can go without one – whichever style you personally prefer. Tie back the ponytail with a clear elastic, and simply braid the hair until you reach the ends. Once the braid is complete, use a bobby pin to secure the ends in place.
Wrap the braid around the clear elastic in a clockwise motion, pinning the braid to your head as you go. Once you have reached the end of the braid, remove the bobby pin and secure the ends of the hair underneath the twisted braid, out of site. Feel free to add extra bobby pins once you’re finished for maximum hold, and voila! You now have a beautiful braided spiral hair-do.
I curled the hair that was not incorporated into the braid (as you can see in the above image), however you can style this hair however you please.
Let me know if you try this look out, and if you’re looking for more inspiration please consider subscribing to Missy Sue’s channel. She is incredibly talented and offers unique hairstyles regularly.
