Celebrity Look-A-Like Style: Circle Braid

If you watched the billboard awards, you may remember seeing Alicia Keys hairstyle. She rocked an elegant updo style. I wanted to recreate the style, with naturally curly hair. 

Since N's hair is so thick, I had to work in sections. 

1.) I started by putting her hair into 6 sections. 3 on the top of her hair, 1 in the middle, and 2 at the bottom.

Note: Being that we are in the final week of  BBB's Protective Style Challenge. I had to follow the rules, and could not use rubberbands to secure the section, so I used all black hair ties.

2.) Starting with the top section I created a braid. Make sure to braid rather loosely.

3.) As I got closer to the next section, I connected and grabbed another section of the hair (like you would when cornrowing) and added it to the braid.

4.) I continued step #3 which is (braiding one section, then connecting it to the next section) throughout her hair, forming a circle.

5.) Once I reached the final section, I tucked the left over hair/ends, around the braid to hide it. 

Note: If your circle is not flat, try using bobbypins to secure the hair. Also use rubberbands to hold each section, it may look a tad neater.
