This hair tutorial is the perfect blend of feminine meets chic. This is one of those few styles that are so unique and intricate, but are still easy to style in every day life. My favorite way to style this look is with an edgier outfit, giving my look a lot of contrast.
For this hair tutorial you will need: two hair bands, a brush, and about 10 hair pins.
Begin with your hair down. Consider adding some large, loose curls before you start to give it a more complete look.
Part the top half of hair and secure it with a hair band. If you have naturally thin or flat hair, try teasing the top of of you head. This will not only help give your hair more body, but it will allow the hairstyle to stay in place longer and more securely.
Take the section you just secured with a hair band and create one long braid. Depending on the tightness of your braid will ultimately change the look of the final style. If you want the "rose" to be bigger and more simple, create a loose braid. If you want a smaller, more intricate rose make a tighter braid. Once you reach the end of the braid, secure it with a small, elastic hair band.
Step Four & Five
Once the braid it complete, start wrapping the braid in a coil. Continue wrapping the braid until it begins to turn into a bun.
Once you reach the top of the braid at your scalp, secure it tightly with hairpins. I used seven pins, but this number will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair. If you want the rose to appear large, take a small comb and lightly tug at small sections throughout the rose. This will loosen your hair, while giving it a more messy, textured look.
Easy as that! For other styling options, try this with all of your hair for an easy up-do. Or take the look even further by creating three smaller roses into low buns for an even fancier up-do. Enjoy!
