Hi babes! Welcome to hairstyle #2 in the Urban Foraging for Winter Hairstyles feature series.
This one is a charming little half-up hair do featuring scrunched braids, with foraged Beauty Berries and greenery from a Douglas Fir.
This hairstyle is best done on medium to long hair. You can use whatever greenery and berries you can find around your neighborhood for it.
“This Masterbraider is the product I’ve been waiting for my whole life. My hair feels so thick and looks amazing!”
Glad you love it, lady. It really is magic for fine and slippery hair.
Prepare your greenery by cutting it into small pieces that can easily be pinned into the hair.
Begin the hairstyle by criss-crossing 4 bobby pins in the very back of your head. This will give you something to pin the berries and fir and braids into;)
Use bobby pins to pin in your plants securely to your criss-cross pins. Keep adding plants until your arrangement looks balanced and pretty without being to big or heavy.
Now, on one side of your head, take a large section of hair, including all the hair from your hairline, and make a braid. Once you reach the ends, pinch 2 of the strands from your 3 strand braid between the fingers on your dominant hand, while pinching the 3rd strand between the fingers of your other hand.
Holding the one strand in place, pull your 2 strands upward towards the base of the braid, scrunching it towards the head. It will create a cool looking braid that you may never knew existed. Well now, on your head, it officially does;)
Now, gather your 2 short strands in with your one long strands, and adjust the braid so that it is long enough to reach across to the back of the head, with an inch or so to spare. Pin the braid into your criss-crossed pins, covering the pins that secure the berries and fir.
Repeat this on the other side. Pin your second braid over the first one, covering any bobbies, and pinning into the criss-cross pins, not across the top of the braid. The key is to hide those pins as well as you can.
Voila! Perfect hair for your upcoming Solstice Party.
