Rosette Trio: A Hair Tutorial

Hello Beautiful!

I posted a picture on Instagram and Facebook a while ago of this hairstyle and got a lot of requests for a hair tutorial. So here it is!




This hairstyle works on all hair lengths and it's super easy. If you have a fringe (bangs) you can opt to leave the hair out to frame your face. Mine are getting pretty long so I just incorporated them in the hairstyle.


Let's get started!

1. Grab three separate sections from your crown and tie them into small ponytails. I chose to make the middle section slightly thicker than the surrounding two sections.

2. Begin braiding each section in a regular three strand braid.

3. You should end up with three small braids. Tie them off using small elastic bands.

4. Grab one braid and begin pulling a loop at a time all the way up the braid to fan it out. Do this on one side of the braid. These loops form the petals of the flower.

5. You should end up with three fanned braids which look significantly thicker than your original three braids. Note how I have only fanned ONE side of each braid. It doesn't matter which side you fan out.

6. Hold the base of the braid and begin twisting the braid around on itself. Twist it in such a way that the fanned side of the braid remains on the OUTSIDE of the twist.

7. Pin the twist in place to give it the flower shape. If you feel you need to pull on the loops to give them more of a petal-like shape then now would be the time to play around with the Rosette.

8. Repeat the same with the other two braids.

9. I added hair spinners to the middle of my Rosettes for some eye-catching detail. This also hides any pins that may be showing through. You can use real flowers if you like!

I left my hair natural for the rest of the look but you can choose to curl the loose hair to give it some oomph!

That's all folks! I hope you found this tutorial helpful. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Peace and Love,
