What’s fabulous about this hairstyle is that you don’t need to be able to braid to complete this look!  Ta-da!  It’s hands down THE easiest hairstyle to date.  AND IT’S GORGEOUS!!  Oh I was so excited when I learned how to do it!!  It might look a little confusing at first but just try it.  Also it’s great if you have layers.

  • Wow that sees really easy to do. The video is working now. It really looks pretty.!

  • Why did I chop all my hair off before learning this?!?! Grow hair, grow!!! Thanks for sharing this awesome hair style!

  • This is so pretty! I love it!!

  • Thanks for sharing, I’m trying this tomorrow. Great job on the video!

  • I have tried this the last two days and L-O-V-E it… so easy and holds layers mostly in place(I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I did use 4-ONLY 4!- bobby pins. But I did make the braid messy and that is a step in the right direction for me!! lol

    Thanks for this post, I will be doing this more and more!

  • Seriously it’s awesome huh?!! When I learned how to do it I was almost freaking out. I was so excited!!! And if it gets all messy with kids tugging and pulling at it- who cares! It’s supposed to be messy and to re do it it takes like five seconds!!! LOVE it!
