Do you love this updo as much as I do? I recreated this dreamy hairstyle on Rowan. Below you can see the steps to transform your hair into this romantic piece of art.

1. Bump it!

Create a bump at the front part of your hair, but let the sides hang loose. You can create volume by backcombing your hair or by using a bump-it (and spare yourself some tangles). Attach this with a bobby pin. If you don’t have bangs, you can use the front locks in the bump, or let some of them hang loosely across your face.

2. Create braids

Make multiple braids. They do not need to look perfect. The two braids on the side of your head are the most important. Try to braid these to the front/up.

3. Put up your hair

Pin the braids of the side to your face up. Blend them in a messy way, so it’s not really clear where one of the braids ends and the other begins.

After that, put up the rest of the braids and hair with some bobby pins.

    Mooi! Als ik zulke prachtige kapsels zie, wou ik soms weer dat ik lang haar had. Maar na enkele seconden komen alle voordelen van korter (en momenteel asymmetrisch) haar weer in mijn hoofd poppen 😉
