This updo braid is specially designed for girls with short hair to show that they, too, can wear braids. The look involves separating the front section of the hair. Then divide the hair on the back of your head into three parts. Braid the lefthand braid using the Dutch lace braid, which is the opposite of a French braid and pulls the hair only from the left.

Braid the center section into a regular Dutch braid. The right section will also be braided into a Dutch lace braid, this time pulling the hair only from the right. The important part is to stretch out each braid, so they look more voluminous.

Either secure the ends of the braids with clear elastics or bobby pins or leave the ends loose. You can style the front section into a rockabilly pouf or another style as you would like.

Pros

  • Good for bridesmaids with short hair
  • A cool look that’s a bit different
