Upside-Down Braided Headband Updo

Step-By-Step Tutorial


I was watching Frozen a couple months ago with my daughter, and loved Anna’s hairstyle that she wore when she first met Hans.  So, I decided to recreate that hairstyle, but on the bottom instead of the top!  It’s as if there sat a headband going around the bottom of your hair instead of the top.


First, take a section of hair in the middle and clip it out of the way.  Then on either side of that section, take a small chunk of hair and braid all the way to the ends, securing with a clear elastic.  Pull on the braid to add some extra volume.



Then you will take the rest of your hair (leaving the braids out), and throw it in a high ponytail.


Next, take the braid from the left and pin it against the bottom of your head and tucking the ends into the ponytail.  Then take the braid from the right and place it over the other braid, pinning the ends under the last braid.



Lastly, take the ponytail and make a bun, securing with a clear elastic and some bobby pins.  To get a full bun like mine, you’ll want to do a little bit of teasing with a comb or brush.
