#DIYhair Friday! Sci-fi empress long-hair spiral braid.

DSC05341spiralHere is a doozy of a cool hairstyle that takes a long time, is hard on your fingers, and looks super cool! I am here today to show you how I did it, the error of my ways, and how to make it easier next time.

My model was going on a road trip and intended on wearing her hair this way for 2 weeks. I think it was the perfect road trip hair solution!

I did this hairstyle as an experiment, only to learn that I could have done it much easier by doing a lace braid instead of a french braid. A lace braid means you just add hair in on one side of the french braid. After I did this hairstyle on 4 foot long hair, I thought to myself……There has to be a better way. Here it is. This video shows the easier solution…..Lace braid, and starting at the top and working down and around.

To get this look the hard way, I basically started at the nape of the neck and made a continuous spiral parting around the outer perimeter of the head and worked my way in. I would part about 6 inches of the spiral, french braid (cornrow), clip it off, part 6 more inches, and continue braiding. Eventually, the spiral ended at the top of the head. I braided the free end, then wrapped the braid into a big bun and pinned it with large bobby pins. spiral braid

Grab your longest haired friend and try this bad-ass sci-fi empress hairstyle this weekend!

XOXO, HTHG
