We're calling it... Braids are back! They've beaten off the brows as the Instragram trend du jour, and new swoon-worthy styles are popping up on the regular! The latest? It's bloomin' beautiful!
Hot on the heels of the pipe braid comes a softer, sweeter, super gorgeous braid style. Prepare to breathe in with delight...
Welcome to the braided rose.
The work of art above was created by Alison Valsamis of Braided and Blonde, and is titled 'Garden Trellis'.
Isn't it gorgeous? Intricate. Divine. Absolutely stunning.
I can imagine it on a summer's bride, wearing a vintage or vintage-style dress, wafting up a meadow, clasping a handful of freshly cut daisies.
Best of all... if you want to attempt this look, you can! Alison put together an Instagram tutuorial showing how she created the braided rose (link above!).
She notes that she uses a mix of standard and dutch techniques to create the 3D feel of a real flower. What we love is that when you first see the braided rose image you think 'I could never do that', but Alison's tutorial makes it seem very doable.
Anyone else feel like colouring their hair to create this look?
