Holiday Hair DIY: Braid Up

 When my sister was in town last week, I knew I had to create the next Holiday Hair DIY on her hair. I had fun experimenting, and ending up with this new favorite up-do of mine! I call it Braid Up.

1. Part your hair how you normally would, and pull out two front sections of hair.  Do an inverse french braid by making your braid pattern under-over. (A regular braid is over-under)
2. Once braided, pull your braid outwards to make it looser. Take your braid and twist it around the starting point of your french braid. Secure it with bobby pins to create a bun. 
3. Next, braid the two loose strands that you previously pulled out in step 1. Braid to the end of your hair, and pull it to the back of your head.
4. Bobby pin your plaited braid on the opposite side of your bun. So, if your braid is from the left side of your face, bobby pin it on the right side, next to your bun. Do that for both sides. 

 This creates a beautiful up-do for any holiday party, and doesn't take long! Make sure you tag me on instagram @theshineproject so I can see your holiday hair. If you missed last weeks hair DIY, click here.
