Braided Bangs Half Up

I’m super excited about this week’s hair tutorial because, well, it’s pretty and also because I colored my hair last week and I love freshly colored hair. So that’s fun…

A while back, heck over a year now? I did a tutorial on 13 ways to wear your bangs. Who knew but that post has been crazy popular on here and the one picture that blew it all up was me with my head down and my bangs are braided. Amazingly simple. I would have never guessed so many people would find that hairstyle so interesting, but alas, simple is probably better!

So with that in mind, I created today’s tutorial. I love the braided bangs out of my face look and with some volume & a half-up hairstyle, you’re so classy and chic. It’s perfect. It would also be lovely for wedding hair. If you’re attending or in the wedding, it would be very pretty!

What you’ll need. I created a video tutorial below that you can check out if you’re more of a visual learner, but I’ll explain here a bit too.

Start at the very front of your head with a very small section. French braid just that section about halfway back the top of your head. Continue with a regular braid just to make sure it holds. Secure with bobby pins straight across. Just make sure the bobby pins match the color of your hair and don’t worry about hiding them.

Tease from the French braid back to where you want to secure the half up. Be sure to tease the sides as well. Smooth the tease out a bit without brushing it out entirely. Take the sections you want and loosely and lightly twist and pin at the back of your head. Once you’ve secured it, you can pull out the sides so that it’s not too tight. You can also use the tongs side of the teaser comb to pull on the braid a little bit for some volume there.

That’s it! Easy peezy, right? I really love this look, it seems so feminine and pretty. I also really like my hair out of my face, so this works perfectly!

    Love the braid at the crown! That is such a fun idea & a creative twist to usual braids with the rest of the hair down. I love that it also works as a sophisticated and casual look 🙂 Great job with the tutorial!

    Hi, I really like you hair color XD (sorry for being irrelevant) , I have been trying to get this shade but have not found it yet. May I know what hair dye you used please?

    • Natalia April 15, 2014 at 6:47 am #

      No problem! I mix the darkest brown I can find that isn’t black and the deepest red that isn’t bright. I use drug store brands or something i pick up at Sally’s. I don’t have exact colors because it changes each time as I buy a new color or am in a different store! Hope this helps!

    Ahh, this is brill – I’m currently debating on whether to get my bangs cut in again after letting them grow out for a year. I have no clue! But at least if I do I can come look on here for inspiration! x

      Yes, I’ve got a lot on what to do with bangs because they really bug me so much! At least you’ll have some resources!
