We’ve never featured anything quite like this on 4dancers, but when I saw the Facebook picture of this hairstyle, I had to get in touch with the dancer(s) that were responsible for bringing it to my attention and see if they would be willing to share…
Emilie came up with the idea for this particular look and Lissa was kind enough to serve as the model…
I thought this would be a fun style to wear for performance, class–or even for a night out on the town…hopefully you’ll enjoy it too! Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below. And now…the details…
Part hair far to chosen side, and at the base of your crown switch back to a center part. This will help create more even braids.
Under-braid (essentially like French braiding, but rather than folding each section over each other, fold them underneath), making sure to keep each braid as far from the center of your head as possible, this will help the final effect of the “do.”
Repeat on other side…
(Side note: Starting each braid as close to forehead as possible will also enhance the final look.)
Create a bun with the smaller of the two braids (this will be the one closest to the side upon which you parted your hair), making sure to twist hair in toward the center of your head rather that out. Pin securely into place.
Take remaining braid and twist across head and around the bun. This braid should ultimately end up twisting in the opposite direction.
Thanks again to Lissa and Emilie for taking the time to really break this down for us–much appreciated!
