Blooming Heck! Is This The Prettiest Braid Ever?

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? 

(Also, if you want some braidspiration check out the Braided and Blonde Insta page - seriously amazing.)

So are you here for braided rose hair? Has it got you blooming excited? Is your heart blooming with the prettiness of it all? Or is this one braid trend you won't be picking up on anytime soon? Chat away!

Wow, LOVE the top picture! Not so keen on the colours in the second picture. Very pretty the braided roses though and, yep, I reckon this braid would be so cool to try!

I wish that colouring/ bleaching hair didn't damage it, i would have a different colour every week!!! For now though i will stick to my dark hair haha xx

Very pretty. I just don’t have time these days.

They look fabulous. I don't have any hair left for braids now.

So pretty! Unfortunately although I have the hair length. I lack the skill to do it. The braids on that instragram are so pretty. I don't know if all that detail will show up as well on my dark hair though.

I'm not sure how I feel actually. I don't love or hate it.

12th June, 2018

The top one is incredible! How do people have talent like this!!

I love the braided looks you can do, sadly im terrible at anything other than the single braid, and thats not the fancy French kind either.

Braided and Blondes IG video's are quite addictive to watch... Sadly I've never had really long hair to be able to even attempt these, but they are beautiful!

I love the top braid it's so pretty. I could see this on my girls however I don't think I could replicate this look, a good job for the hairdresser lol.
