I have decided wear this hairstyle in Puja of my cousin’s wedding function.  I didn’t had enough time to do the french loop style so I found a way out to braid it the same way but with the half up style. You can do this hairstyle with either dry or wet hair, depending upon the how “neat” you want. I did this with dry hair. But I would recommend you to do it with wet hair if you are doing it for the first time. I have listed “hard” in skill level because it is really difficult to keep the track of the strands. Once you have patterned down it won’t take much time. You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle,hair elastics, bobby pins, u-pins, hair clips, hairspray {if desired}.
