I've been seeing this style become more and more popular. I have to say, though, that I think it may work better in some hair types than in others. Belle's hair is slick and straight, and whenever I put this style in her hair, it barely lasts a half hour. She is young, though, and likes to play rough. A teen or adult or someone whose hair isn't so slippery may not have the same trouble. I've seen this style on someone with very curly hair. I thought it was striking. I really liked it. So here's how:
The first step is a temporary pony at the bottom of the head. This makes the braiding easier. Part out the section at the top to use for braiding, and pull the rest out of the way.
Add hair from the top like in a regular french braid
