imageLast Saturday, we shared an Instagram of Rachel’s ‘Brunch Braid’ (a.k.a. an upside-down French braid with a bun) and we were overwhelmed by the interest in how to create this style! Your wish is our command. Rachel re-created the look with step by step photos and tips so you can do it yourself.

You will need:

  • 1 strong pony holder
  • 1 thin pony holder
  • 1 sock that matches your hair color
  • Scissors
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair spray
  • Hair Brush

Step 1:

As with most styles and updos, second or third day hair is best.

Step 2:

Flip your head upside down and brush your hair out.

Step 3:

imageWhile upside down, grab a small chunk of hair from the nape of your neck and begin to French braid.

Step 4:

Continue the French braid untill you’ve gone two-thirds of the way up your head. Fasten the braid with a thin pony holder.

Step 5:

Flip right side up and brush through the top of your hair. Take a strong pony holder and and create a high pony.

Step 6:

Take your sock and cut off the toe. Then roll the sock into itself until you have a donut. Then slide the donut over your pony.

Step 7:

Pull your hair around the pony so you have the shape of a bun. Begin to fold the excess hair under the bottom of the bun and fasten with a pony holder.
