Half Up Swoop Braid (Video Tutorial)


Your New Go-To Braid

You may remember a few weeks ago when I teamed up with my good friend Kate for a fun “how-to” tutorial on The Volumized Ponytail.  Well today’s your lucky day because we are back with a second video on the prettiest Half-Up Side Swoop Braid you’ve ever seen! We originally filmed this video just for Instagram, but it turned out so good that I thought I’d put it here for you as well, that way you can bookmark it and come back to it if needed!

I for one love braiding my hair and so when Kate and sat down to talk about what we should produce during our time in Palmetto Bluff together I couldn’t say “braid!!” fast enough. I’m always looking for new, fun and easy ways to wear my hair and this will be one of my go-to styles this Summer.

What I love most about it is the unexpected swoop! Normally if I was to do my hair like this I would braid both sides, but I love how Kate made the style more interesting with a pretty swoop which elevated the look 100%.

This hairstyle is easy enough for every day but is most definitely special enough for a wedding or black tie event. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and please let me know if you end up trying it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
