The way that hair texture and color works with a style can really make it stand out. The ombre in my hair is why this style looks so cool….A gentle fade from dark to light turns an ordinary braid into a flowery snail braid.
The Snail braid is a great summer hairstyle because it looks great loose and deconstructed, but will still hold well for a day of outdoor action. It is simple to do…..Just a dutch braid across the back of the head, end wrapped into a bun and pinned. Here is how to get the look.
The Snail Braid
1. Start a dutch braid on one side.
2. Continue the braid across the back of the head, and all the way down the free end. Secure the ends with a clear elastic.
4. Pull the end across the back of the head in the opposite direction.
5. Curl the ends in towards the center to make a braided spiral, flat against the head. Pin the spiral in place discreetly, tucking in the ends to hide them.
Now enjoy the summer with your hair off your neck, in a beautifully simple updo. Click here for the half-up version of this pretty hairstyle!
