Day 21 – Flower Braid

 Flower braid tutorials - I love these gorgeous braids, so pretty for any ages!

We are on to day 21 of the 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids.

Today’s challenge is the flower braid – or braided flower.  I LOVE flower braids.  They are just so beautiful and feminine.  I think they are even better in person than in photographs.  I always want to just stare and smile at them.  Love, love, love them!!

There are some different variations and ways that you can make a flower braid – but the general premise is the same in most cases.  You do the braid, pull the outer edges to make your petals, and pin them in into place.  Today I am sharing my favorite ways to do a flower braid.  I hope that you will be inspired by these gorgeous braids!


Dutch Flower Braid tutorial by Cute Girls Hairstyles.  I fell in love with this style the first time I saw it and I am still in love with this one!  You would think it takes forever, but it really is less than 10 minutes!  And she shows this braid with a regular Dutch braid, but you can mix it up and do a different braid with it once you learn the technique.  My favorite way to do it is with a 5 strand Dutch braid.  (Though that way does take a bit longer than 10 min!)


Rosette Flower Braid tutorial by Bebexo.  This is the best tutorial I have seen on a rosette, it’s what helped me to master it.  I think it’s so gorgeous and lovely and you can add this as an accent to any style!


Flower Braided Bun Tutorial by Abellas Braids.  This flower is different than all of the other flowers in today’s post.  It’s unique and beautiful, and a bit more difficult.  If you have done rosettes and other braided flowers before, I challenge you to give this one a try today!
Flower Braid tutorial by Annies Forget Me Knots.  I think that a couple of braids back to a flower at the back of your head is such a great way to wear a flower braid!  You could do lace braids like she does her, or mix it up and choose different braids going back. 


Dutch Braid Rose Hairstyle tutorial by Princess Hairstyles.  This is a stunning style and it’s easier than may you think!


Braided Pull Back & Flower Bun tutorial by Babes in Hairland.  This is a quick and easy style.  Simple and elegant, I love it!


3D Waterfall Braid & Braided Flower tutorial by me.  This style is a bit more challenging, but I do love how this one looks!  My flower braid is done with a 3D round braid and I just love how it turns out with that braid versus a regular three strand braid.

I hope this post gives you some great ideas on how you can style a flower braid.  I’d love to see how you do today’s challenge if you want to share.  You can share a photo on my Facebook page, tag me in a photo on Instagram – @hair_by_lori or just use the hashtags #30DaysNewBraids #30DNBDay21.
