Braided rose hairstyles are taking over the world this month and we can definitely see why. These intricate creations are delicately woven using your tresses to create a blooming and fresh hairdo.
Conceived by Alison Valsamis, a hairstylist based in Connecticut, USA, braided roses may seem a bit too complex and difficult to achieve at home but luckily for us, Alison has explained how you can manage to create your look in a recent interview with Allure magazine.
“To create these roses, I start with a small 3-strand braid rolled up to serve as the centermost part. Next, I alternate between standard fishtails and Dutch fishtails pulled apart to create depth. I finish with a Dutch 3-strand braid only pulled out on the outermost side to create the large petal feel of a rose in bloom.”
Okay, so it isn’t as simple as we would like. But Alison has been even more generous with her creation, providing an in-depth and visual guide on her Instagram account (@braidedandblonde). Check it out below, and stun at your next outing!
