How To Upside-Down Braid Your Hair In 6 Easy Steps (VIDEO)

By now, you've probably managed a typical French braid... but have you tried turning it upside down?

An upside-down braid is a fun way to mix it up by reversing the direction of the classic style. We've broken it down into six easy steps that will leave you with a pretty braid that goes up the back of your head, instead of down it. The result is a braided updo that you can pretty much wear everywhere. Watch the tutorial in the video above and try it yourself. Oh, and don't forget to check out the rest of our braid tutorials on YouTube.
