DIY messy rope braids and low bun hairdo

Thursday, April 21, 2011

I usually wear my hair down or in a messy bun but I'm so happy to see that Maegan did a fantastic video tutorial on how to create a messy rope braids and low bun hairdo. Perfect spring look! Balazs and I have a garden wedding coming up next month and I think this will be perfect. Dears, what do you think? Would you try this look? xoxo

P.S: Also love this pretty side French braid low updo!

Really like it!!! I feel like this look would look the best in wavy/curley hair..not in hair like mine thats so dead straight!

This is GORGEOUS! I wonder if it works better with clean or dirty hair...hmmm. I might try it tomorrow :)

I am always looking for new and exciting ways to tame the crazy mane! LOVE the messy braids!

iloveyouvalentine said...

love how the braids sort of cross over since you've taken it from both sides. such a cute hairstyle! i think it could look nice with both straight and wavy/curly hair depending on the variation you could do with it :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Love this! And so great that there is a video tutorial. I don't think I would be able to achieve this look without it!
