Hairstyle inspired by Shay Mitchell: Spine Braid Bun

Spine Braid is my new obsession, definitely the hair goals for 2016.  This hairstyle is inspired by Shay Mitchell. The original hairstyle had these rings on the braid. I don’t know if it could be your everyday hairstyle, it totally varies from person to person. Probably it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. To start with it begins with triangle parting starting from the apex center of the head diagonally and then down to the neck. Now you wanna take the tiny section of head at the nape of neck and begin with 3 strand dutch braid. Continue to braid till you reach the apex of the head. Then you wanna make a high ponytail grabbing all the hair and make fishtail braid out of that ponytail. Wrap the fishtail around that braid, a little bit messy and secure it with bobby pins. You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}. Time Taken: 12-15 mins Skill Level:  Hard Hair Length: Medium to long hair
