How to Do a ’Très Chic’ Upside-Down French Braid

It’s about time we shake up our usual braid style, so why not flip the whole thing on its head? Literally. Here’s what you need to know to create a super-cool upside-down French braid.

Step 1: Flip your head over and brush your hair up for a smooth start. Begin French braiding as you normally would starting from the base of your neck.

Step 2: Finish the braid at the crown of your head and tie off with an elastic band.

Step 3: Loop the rest of your hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins.

Step 4: Use additional bobby pins to smooth any bumps; then spritz with a bit of hairspray and you are all set. Just don't be surprised when your friends fall head over heels for your new 'do.
