HAIR: Triple French Plait

Today my hair needed to be up, because I simply felt like it! :) I usually just pull it all back, but today I did something different to it.


I sectioned the front section of my hair into 3 parts, and french plaited them....


I then tied it all up in a ponytail with a hairband, and plaited a section of it and wrapped it all the way round to hide the hairband.


It looked really cool, so I thought I would share that information with you! :)

This is what it looks like from the front, quite subtle... but interesting!



Do you do random casual updos like this?

PS: I have been really rocking the Sleek Storm palette, in these pictures I have on the lighter blue, with the midnight blue on the outer V with the brown matt colours in the crease. I cant get over how pigmented the colours are! Will do a full post on that soon! X

Looks amazing, but I find a french braid really hard as my hair is so long now it gets all tangled up :(. Need to practise!! xx

that looks beautiful. I wish I could wear a similar hairstyle but I can't make a proper simple ponytail, let alone triple french plait :D

btw,it's amazing how good it looks good on you. ponytail (and combed-back hairstyles in general) don't look this good on many woman. I think it's something about the ratio between forehead and the whole face.

your lashes look amazing!

Macalicious said...

I wish I had enough gorgeous hair like yours to do the styles you do (sad face) I am insanely hair-jealous!

How the hell do you do french braids on yourself? I always have to have my mom do it on me lol. The eye makeup ROCKS by the way. please do a tut!

Gem said...

That hairstyle is so cute! I wish I could manage stuff like that but I am so useless at french plaits, I can't even do it on someone else's hair!
