Hello, everyone! It’s Katie here again! Ever since Emma cut her hair several months back, I’ve been wanting to find more hairstyles for her new length.
It’s such a great cut, and I have quite a few friends who have this same general style, so I knew I needed to find more things that work for this length! Today, I have an updo for you to try out!
-hair elastics (3 or 4, depending on the thickness of your hair)
-hair spray (optional)
Step One: Use your comb to gather the top section of hair from your head and tie off with an elastic. The goal here is to have three equal sections, so keep that in mind when gathering your first section.
Steps Five & Six: After you have reached the bottom and tied the braid off with an elastic, pull the braid outward to create a fuller-looking braid. Be careful not to pull it too much, or it will be extremely loopy when it’s finished. I learned this the hard way.
Step Eight: Roll the bottom of the braid under and pin into place. Finish off the style by pinning the sides down until all the elastics are covered. Your final product should look something like this:
Emma’s hair is such a great length for this style, and it looks beautiful on her! Don’t be scared off if your hair is a little shorter or a little longer than Emma’s. I think this style could work for a lot of lengths!
I’ll be sharing some more styles in the coming weeks for all you gals with medium-length hair! Until then, happy braiding! xo. Katie
