4 Strand ribbon braid updo

Hi Guys! Have you ever thought about the updo with ribbon!? It would be interesting for you to know that I tried to put so many things in one hairstyle. Ribbon,flower, updo, what could be much better!

My client wanted an updo, something very unique yet something on it which would match her saree color as well! So 4 strand ribbon braided updo would be the best possible option! It was the summer time so it’s most comfortable to carry updo with sarees and lehengas! She wore this at her brother’s wedding function! It’s perfect for the reception, wedding, sangeet, anniversaries & birthday parties, festivals.

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by side parting your hair,now tie a knot at one end of the ribbon(so that it stuck in a place while braiding) and secure it with bobby pins.
  2. Now pick a section of hair & divide it into 3 equal strands, then take the 1st strand (just next to forehead) and cross it under 2nd strand over 3rd strand (i.e ribbon), 4th strand over 1st strand and under 3rd strand. (First stitch of 4 Strand braid is complete now).

  5. Now braid the remaining hair into 4 strand till you reach the end and secure the braid with an elastic.
  6. Begin to roll the braid taking the ends to give it a rosette/flower shape and place it below the diagonal braided section, then pin it to keep it secure.
  7. You can add flower or any accessory at the center of the bun.
