How To: Tucked Braids

February 26, 2015

Recently I had the opportunity to make a tutorial for Inspired By This, a great blog for all things inspiration!  Here is the tutorial I made for them for a simple tucked braid updo that is great for short and mid-length hair.

1 - Divide the hair into two sections - one small section that goes from about 2" behind your ear and forward on the heavy side, and everything else in one big section.
2 - Take the big section and begin a french braid that starts by the ear and goes across the back of the head.  
3 - Continue braiding across the back until you reach the opposite corner.
4 - Roll the end of the braid up and tuck it underneath.  Secure the ends with a bobby pin.
5 - Let down the small section and do another french braid, this time starting at the part and going down behind the ear.
6- Holding the braid loosely in one hand, use the other hand to gently pull on individual sections of the braid to loosen and soften it.  
7 - Tuck the ends of the braid under and secure them with bobby pins just next to where you secured the other braid.
