InStyle Your Way Challenge: The Braided Up-Do

My first InStyle Your Way challenge was to re-create this braided up-do look with a Pout Out Proud twist...

The Easy Way to Get the Braid Trend: Everyday braid with loose bun
I decided to showcase an easy-to-create up do, a classic and stylish style. Here's my friend Rachel, modelling the look...

This braided style was so easy to create, it literally takes minutes. Create a chunky french plait across your hair line, pinning in place at the ear. Scoop the body of your hair into a high pony, and backcomb slightly. Pin into a loose bun for a stylish but easy up-do. 

Braid like a Professional: Dishevelled fishtail braid

For those with a real knack for braids, try the hairdresser's interpretation of the hottest trend right now. My friend Heidi at Impulse Hair Salon helped me to create the desired effect, but if you're a hair fiend then give this ethereal trend a try.

Create a fishtail braid across the forehead, pinning in place under the hair on the opposite side. Then do a normal plait on top for extra depth and texture, again pinning in place. The look is meant to be dishevelled, so use a pin comb to unpick the fishtail slightly. Create a few loose curls in the body of the hair, working with the natural movement, and pin up the back to create a loose bob. 

Gorgeous! And here's how to get the InStyle halo braid (pictured at the top of this blog)
