Hey guys! If you’re new here, my name is Abby and I own the site Twist Me Pretty, where I have over a hundred hairstyle tutorials, and a fabulous how-to book called The Ultimate Hairstyle Handbook: Everyday Hairstyles for the Everyday Girl! I am excited to announce I’m working with Ulysses Press for a second hairstyle book that’s going back to the basics and offering over 50 new twists on the modern braid!
This style will be in the new book and is one of the more challenging styles. Don’t let that scare you away though, because I’ve spelled out every step and made it super simple to follow along!
You are going to need a chignon or sock bun for this tutorial. You will also need to know how to do a one-sided Dutch French braid. Quick refresher course — with a Dutch French braid, you are braiding the outer sections under the middle section instead of over like in a regular French braid. And with it being one-sided … well, that just means you’re only adding in a new section of hair to one side instead of both. Let’s get to it, shall we?!
Go ahead and finish this style off by spraying down any flyaways. If you have a bunch of those annoying little hairs at the nape of your neck, comb them into the hair and pin them down. You can pull out any fringe, and if you have straight across bangs, please please leave them down! Oh so pretty!
