If you haven’t noticed, these braided flowers are my new favorite things. My previous hair tutorial (check it out here) features one and I have a feeling they will be in some upcoming tutorials too. They are so simple yet so feminine and pretty at the same time. I’m super happy with how this floral ponytail tutorial turned out so I hope you enjoy it. Also, be sure to let me know if you give this easy hair-do a try; I love seeing your recreations!
P.S. You can check out a tutorial for the waves in my hair here.
Step 1: Start by creating two sections, one of each side of your head. Make sure to take these sections from the front bottom portion of your hair like shown above.
Step 2: Then tightly gather the two sections in a ponytail at the back of your head. Although not all of the hair is gathered into a ponytail, tying these two sections back will create the illusion of a ponytail.
Step 3: Tightly braid the ponytail and tie it off with a small hair elastic. It is important that the braid is tight for the following step.
Step 4: Then pull apart only one side of the braid. It does not matter which side you pull apart.
Step 5: Lastly, wrap the braid around itself with the pulled apart side facing out. This will create the “petals” of the flower. Then finish by pinning your flower in place. Make sure the end of the braid is hidden and you are done!
