I tried this last night when the kids were in bed, just to see if it's that easy and it is. I did 8 sections instead of 4 and I got a ton of volume with my short hair. Also, I did a side part because I don't like a middle part on me. I did not realize the trick to curling was doing it all in the same direction and a flattering direction at that.
It seems pretty easy, but it’s not. Not everyone has long hair that reaches all the way around the head to make a perfect crown of braids. Girls with short hair need braids TOO! Using this technique, you make small, overlapping intersections of braids to create a full crown. Here’s how: go to page for instructions
Testimonial... From someone else: I pinned this with the thought of "Wow, another great pinterest hairstyle that I'll never be able to do." But let me just tell you IT WORKS! If you know how to fishtail braid, this is the easiest and most impressive updo I've ever done!! Got compliments on it all night long and it only took me about 10 minutes to do. HIGHLY recommend it!!!
