Maiden of Unicorn land half-up braid bun.

DSC00476I would like to feel like the queen of unicorn land all the time. But I can’t. It is just not practical. But any time I see a fair maiden in a fairy tale book or a painting, the little 6 year old in my heart sings a song. Screen Shot 2013-03-26 at 9.15.40 PMI am inspired by the soft beauty of woodland fairies and fair maidens.Screen Shot 2013-03-26 at 9.14.40 PM I also love Lisa Frank, still to this day.

Maybe your 6 year old heart will sing a song too.

By the way, this unicorn is rocking the unicorn horn of braids.

This queen of the ren-fair hairstyle works best on hair that is medium-long, and any texture will do. And the braiding technique is a new one. It is simple, and I don’t know why I didn’t discover it sooner. It is basically just making a free braid, and braiding the end of it into a new free braid, and then braiding that tail into another free braid, back and forth across the back of the head.

Here is how to do it.

1. Begin by making a side section on the left side of the head, from the top of the head to the back of the ear. Braid the section. When you get to the end of the braid, bring it across the back of the head to the other side.

2. Make a section on that side and start another braid, adding the tail of your first braid into one of your three braid pieces. Braid to the end, and take that braid back across to the other side.

3. Repeat with another small braid section, below your first one. Bring that braid back across to the other side.

4. Make one more braid from a small section below your second braid, braiding in the tail of the 3rd braid,

5. Bring the 4th braid across to the other side, and secure the end. Tuck the tail discreetly under the 3rd braid, and pin it to secure it.

Now saddle up your unicorn (Mine’s name is Molly) and go.
