Week Five- Ballerina Inspired Updo

\
Week five is here! For those of you who are new to the blog, welcome! Click here for more information about the series. Today, I will show you a hairstyle you could use for class or a fun night out! 


    Start with tangle-free hair. My lovely model has very straight hair, but this hairstyle works for all different types. Part your hair in a flattering place for you.


    Take about 2in. by 1in. of hair {this doesn't need to be exact)} and begin to braid. Once you have reached the end of the hair, do not use a rubber hairband {unless you are doing it on yourself}. You can have your client work those arm muscles :-) 


 Repeat the same process on the other side. 


Your head should now look like this-


While keeping the braids in front, gather the rest of the hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hairband.

Now take the braids, and cris-cross them above the ponytail. Take a second hairband and rap it around. 

Pull the hair slightly away from the head, and make a hole in the hair. Twist the hair upwards, and through the hole. 



Repeate this 2-3 times depending on the length of your hair. On the last twist, tuck the ends in and put in bobby pins {or hair pins} to keep in in place. 
And villa!

Ballerinas- to wear for class, just follow until the braids are secured with a ponytail holder. Then make your bun as usual :-)

Questions? Comment below! Also, I want to see pictures of your results! :-)
