This one has been floating around Pinterest and I really like the look of it.
This is our attempt at recreating the Carousel Braid and hopefully the video will help you as well.
One of these days I will master the whole filming hair thing. I still really struggle with creating a hairstyle from an angle. :)
Here is what the finished product looks like. Pretty huh!
Here is a side view and this braid looks good no matter how you look at it.
This is a close-up of what we did on top of her head to start it all off.
We pulled the braid back to her ponytail, wrapped it around the elastic and then secured it in place with a Topsy Tail.
For a fun little variation tey this "Squished Carousel Braid". You basically just squish all of your twists up and secure the bottom elastic higher onto the ponytail. Kind of neat how the add-ins all fan out!
