Mother of Dragons braids

7U6A3134Therese wanted a braided pile on top of her head to go with her awesome t-shirt. She quite literally is the mother of 2 dragons, Coleman age 6 and Hunter age 3.

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.7U6A3139 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…..

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;)
