The perfect way to accessorize a trendy flower crown.
Braided Updo and Flower Crown features a lace braids on each side of the part that connect into french braids and finish in a braided bun. The flower crown was added to give the look a more feminine touch and I really love how it turned out. The perfect kind of loosely braided updo.

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    How to get the look:

    Begin with a center part.

  • Step 2

    Continue the part down the back of the head and tie off the right side.

  • Step 3

    Grab a flower crown and place it on top of the head, about 3 inches back from the hairline, tie it in the back.

  • Step 4

    Take a section of hair on the left side right next to the part and divide it into three pieces.

  • Step 5

    Begin a regular braid crossing the side strands over the middle strand.

  • Step 6

    Continue braiding a lace braid by bringing in hair from the front and adding it into the braid.

  • Step 7

    Once the braid reaches past the ear, continue braiding a french braid by pulling in hair from both sides.

  • Step 8

    Continue braiding until it reaches the back of the head.

  • Step 9

    Braid the hair a little farther down, in a regular braid, and tie off the end.

  • Step 10

    Repeat steps 4 through 9 with the right side of the head.

  • Step 11

    When both braids meet, pull all the hair up into a ponytail.

  • Step 12

    Divide the ponytail into two halves.

  • Step 13

    Braid each half into a regular style braid.

  • Step 14

    Take one braid, wrap it upwards and clock-wise creating a bun. Pin off the braid so it stays in place.

  • Step 15

    Repeat step 14 with the other braid to create an intricately braided bun.
