If you want to incorporate a flower in your hair without the whole flower crown, this is a great option. Do a quick loose braid on one side and don't worry about leaving out loose pieces. Wrap a ponytail holder in low and add your choice of flower!
Separate hair into 3 sections, per usual with a braid. Braid 2 of your 3 sections into small braids and leave your third section as is. Braid the 2 braids and the section you left out together loosely and secure with a hair tie.
