The Flower Braid; So, pretty so easy

The Flower Braid

The Flower Braid; Find Out How

I have such a sweet love affair with braids! There is an endless amount of different types of braids not to mention a variety of styles to wear them. I can’t seem to get enough of them! I want to introduce to you the fabulous new trend . . . the flower braid! You can rock this look from day to night, casual to fancy, and fun to flirty! Did I mention how super easy this braid is to create?! Let me show you.


1. Create a deep part following your natural part

2. Take 3 strands of hair about a quarter to a half of an inch

3. Begin to French braid starting with the 3 strands of hair

4. After completing the braid secure the end with an elastic hair tie

 5. Delicately loosen the strands of the braid

6. Wrap the braid around in a circular motion

7. Pin the tail of the braid to the interior part of the flower

8. Secure tightly with bobby pins

If your hair is a little dirty it is easier to create this look. We first started by using Paul Mitchell’s new Dry Wash (which smells amazing) in the roots of the hair to give it a bit of a boost. Using hairspray is a must when completing the style, used on the model was Paul Mitchell’s Super Clean Finishing Spray. This spray is good to use because it will give the hair a flexible hold without making the hair look stiff and hard.

Added to the ends of the hair was Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil. This product is absolutely perfect; it will smooth the hair and tame the frizz. This oil is awesome because it is ultra lightweight and you will not have to worry about the oil making your hair super greasy by the end of the day!

The Flower braid is perfect for thin to thick hair but will show up better if you have some highlights and dimension in your hair. No matter your age the flower braid is such a fun hairstyle that anyone is able to rock.
