#31: Elsa Snow Queen Style – Big French Braid

Contrary to some of the other styles we’ve showcased up to this point, the Snow Queen French braid, inspired by the Disney character, is more difficult to complete then you can initially imagine. You may opt to add hair extensions, to get all the volume and length you want for this. To achieve this style you need to braid at the back of your head, but not too low: braids tend to weigh down on their own, as you are wearing them. Elsa’s braid consists of big, loose chunks of hair. Once you’ve reached the nape of your neck, make sure to affix your extensions closely, then continue braiding to the ends, including extensions. Braid the rest of your hair all the way down, loosen it up at the end, and add some snowflake hair pins, too, if you’re so inclined.
