This amazing braided rose style works for any hair type, face shape, and occasion. Plus, you can learn how to do it easily.

Of course, who says you can’t have your cake and eat it, too? Not Instagram. While natural hair color braided roses look amazing, you can combine coloring and styling trends for a more dramatic look.

You won’t believe how easy this look is to achieve.

Step-By-Step Guide To Getting A Braided Rose Look

This look has three roses, but you can do a thicker initial section and skip the other two braids for a single rose. You get all three roses in just seven steps. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Step 1: Create three hair sections in the area you want the braided rose.
  • Step 2: Use the three strains to plait a basic braid and secure the end with a clear thin elastic.
  • Step 3: Repeat steps one and two for two additional sections, which will yield three braids in total.
  • Step 4: Your braid will be tight. Use your fingers to gently loosen each section to create what will be the rose petals.
  • Step 5: Generously set the braid with your hairspray of choice. Allow a moment for it to dry before moving on to the next step.
  • Step 6: It’s time to create the rosette by wrapping each braid inward like you’re creating a loose bun. Secure with pins.
  • Step 7: Repeat step six for the other two braids. You’ll have to judge your spacing based on the thickness of your hair, but each rose should touch at the edges.

Once you’re all done with your braided roses, you can leave the down-do straight or hit it with some flat iron waves. Of course, you can dress up your rose braids with some colored beads or even washout coloring beforehand if you’re doing it on natural hair. This look is so easy to make your own.
