As you know, I follow the blog The Beauty Department. They do truly excellent tutorials. I saw this one: http://thebeautydepartment.com/2013/11/rodarte-fall-2013-braid-tutorial/
This tutorial is great. I tried it myself on my friend Mallory’s hair. The tutorial looks long ONLY because its super detailed.
Here’s my take on it.
I started by braiding Mall’s hair in two braids into a half
Then I braided it down the end so that the whole piece was braided.
Then I took a piece from under the cross-section of the braid and wrapped into a little bun and secured it with three bobby pins.
And BAM, five minute hair is DONE! It looks pretty awesome considering it literally took me less than five minutes.
I think I got pretty close to the inspiration look and didn’t tax myself too much in the process
