The Braided Up-do

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Hiya! How are you today, aces I hope.

Now ya'll know how much we love the whole braided up-do look. However we found that if you attempt to simply tie up one massive high pony, it would reek havoc on your poor, sensitive front hair line. Considering we both have 4-6 packets of braids on our heads, we have to be very gentle with the braids to prevent breakage and unnecessary manipulation. So we came up with a great idea to do this, follow below;

- Take out a few braids at the front then leave them hanging down your face
- Grab a hairband (metal binder free if you can) and tie a firm but not too tight high pony-tail with the remaining braids. Tie it as high as you want the up-do to be.


- Take another hairband and loosely hold the front braids over the new ponytail. This is the trick to taking care of your sensitive edges!

- Use a third hairband or bobby pins to tie the ponytail into a bun (wrap the ponytail around itself and form a bun).


- Grab some lip gloss and hit the town knowing that your up-do will be kind to your edges and hair.




Enjoy the day party people.
