It was a fun hairstyle to do on her shoulder-length hair…Lot’s of little deconstructed braids, piled and pinned with flowers on top. She looked so lovely and regal and also with a hint of ‘don’t fuck with my dragon babies’
I think that this is a lovely fall look, for dragon mothers and non-dragon mothers alike. I encourage you to try it. It is a great one for 2nd or 3rd day hair, because it looks very intricate but is actually quite simple…..
Mother of Dragons Braids
I braided both sides in loose braids, and secured the ends with clear elastics. Then, I deconstructed both braids.
I overlapped one braid across the top of her head and pinned it to secure it. Then I over lapped the other one over the first. I tucked and pinned the ends of both braids out of sight.
Then, I split the back section in to three equal parts, , vertically.
In the middle section, I did another loose braid, secured the end, deconstructed it, and pulled it up and over, pinning it into the first 2 braids, with the ends discreetly tucked underneath.
Then I braided the last 2 sections, secured the ends, and deconstructed them. I pulled one of them up over and pinned it on the top, ends tucked in. I did the same with the last braid.
The key with this hairstyle is to manipulate the braids and build the hairstyle in a way that makes it looks like a mess of braids with no end, so get creative with the winding and piling, tucking and pinning.
Add flowers at the end to finish the look;)
