Actually this is perhaps my favourite hairstyle but the double Dutch braids takes a long time and I’m lazy!
Start with your hair in two Dutch braids. Dutch braids have that nice “bump” that is great for holding back braids.
Wrap one braid around your head. I wrap it in front of the braid bases, but depending on your scalp shape it may work better to wrap behind.
Now “nail” the tassel to the other braid using a hair stick.
Tuck the tassel under and wrap the second braid around the stick in an infinity shape. Pull the braid in under the infinity shape.
Keep wrapping the braid around in an infinity shape, each time pulling the tassel in under itself until you run out of length.
The first braid may feel like its close to slipping here, but it will be fixed soon.
Take the second hair stick and push it through the infinity-shape.
I like putting the sticks in like this for this updo:
(Slightly exaggerated for understanding)
It looks like this from the front: Nice, flat bun with decorative hair sticks and a braided headband.
