flower braid

A braided rosette makes wearing blooms in your hair an everyday possibility. The slightly undone twine mixed with tousled waves is pretty, effortless, and eye-catching.The style has a romantic feeling, perfect for pairing with flowing summer dresses and brightly printed tops. For added flower-child appeal, embellish with a few fresh blossoms. Create this boho style in your bathroom by following a few simple steps. – Laura Martin

Step: Spray locks with hydro mist and scrunch gently to encourage waves. Add a few pumps of set and style and dry with a diffuser until all moisture is gone. If more movement is desired, curl random strands around a styling wand for 10 seconds, to create loose, natural curls. 

Step: Beginning in the right temple, pick up three strands of hair and twine together in a classic plait. Work to the ends and secure with a hair band, then repeat on the left. Pull the two braids around the parietal ridge, forming a circlet. Pin one atop the other at the back of the head.

Step: Take the tail of the top braid and wrap in a circle, tucking ends underneath. Pin in place, then pull apart to make the petals of the flower. If desired, create a third braid, directly below the rose from three new strands of hair.
