Braid Hair Styles

The latest of my braid hair styles!

This braided updo was inspired by, get this, water! I was drinking a glass of water when this style popped into my head, lol.

I really hope you enjoy this hair tutorial and are enjoying this website!

Let me know what other type of diy hairstyles you’d like me to create and post in the comment section below!



For braiding the hair you’ll need:

Products used:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

Great protective hairstyle for hair of any length

Step One:

This is what B’s hair looked like right before we began. Her hair was cleaned and stretched, but had been two strand twisted the day before for big, stretched out curls. I lightly detangled again with my fingers before beginning the actual style.

Step Two:

The next thing I did was go ahead and part out her hair how I wanted it. I parted from the top of her head all the way back to her nape, then again from ear-to-ear so I’d have four different sections. I clipped all but one section out the way and began braiding. I used rubber brands to secure the cornrows then two strand twisted.

Step Three:

This is how the first section of cornrows looked. I braided the two sides towards the middle part and the two front sections all backwards.

Step Four:

After I’d braided both back sections, I started on braiding the top sections as shown. I did a lot of wavy and curly cornrows but feel free to do any style that your little heart desires!

Step Five:

Once I’d finished all four sections, I did one giant Dutch Braid up the back of her head and secure the twists with a ponytail holder.

Doing a ballet bun/sock bun is optional! If you’d like, you can do a messy bun or a Lady GaGa bow or anything else you can think of.

Step Six:

This is what all the braids and twists looked like before I’d finished her bun. I hope the pics helped!

Once you’ve ‘bunned’ the twists, you’re finished! Don’t forget to lavish with an accessory!

I really hope you like this natural hair updo! 

We got A LOT of positive feedback on our Facebook page, so I’m super excited for you all to get to see the finished results.
