From the article : Easy half-up braid hairstyle tutorial
Romantic braided hairstyles are seriously on-trend this spring and, as such, anyone with hair that's long enough might want to consider trying one! This simple half-up braid style is perfect because it's really easy to recreate and only takes a few minutes. Not only that, it also looks great with an unkempt, wavy hair texture.
If you're looking for a cute hairstyle to wear to a wedding (your own or someone else's) or a party, you're in the right place!
If your hair is naturally quite straight, you'll need to create some tousled waves before you start braiding. The good news is that Advanced Hairstyle by L'Oréal Paris have made this very easy, thanks to TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray.
How to tousle: Start by misting hair generously with Tousle Waves Spray and then raking a wide-tooth comb down the lengths to ensure even coverage from roots to ends. Take a half-inch section of hair and twist it. While holding on to the ends of the twisted hair, blow-dry on a low-heat setting. Finger comb once dry to reveal a few loose, tousled waves. Repeat on the rest of your hair and you're good to go.
Step one: Leaving your bangs loose at the front, take a half-inch section of hair from just above each ear and braid them separately. Don't braid too tightly as this hairstyle is all about delicate romance!
Step two: Bring them together at the back of your head and secure them both with the same hair elastic.
Step three: Twist the ends into a loose mini-bun that kind of resembles a rose and pin with a couple of bobby pins.
Step four: Take a slightly larger section of hair, about two inches, from just beneath the "rose" and loosely braid it straight down to create a kind of stem, and secure with another hair elastic.
Step five: Fix your new romantic braid style with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long lasting hold and you're done!
