Wearing your hair in a braid is a fairly common choice of hairstyle.
The French braid is arguably the most common.
However, every now and then, we like to switch up on our appearance.
One way to do that is to flip the braid on its head.
That means getting an upside-down braid.
And as with most braids, the best way to get an upside-down braid is with a second or third day hair.
Do not worry, it is not hard at all.
So, with that in mind, if you want to try a hairstyle that is different and takes only a matter of minutes to get it done, then the upside down braid is the perfect option.
For your convenience, I have round up a number of tutorials and ideas for an upside down braid.
Take a look at them. Maybe you’ll find your next hairstyle.
1. Upside Down Top Knot
We start off with something that is fairly popular lately. Especially if you are a fan of the Big Bang Theory. Penny has been known to wear this hairstyle few times. An elegant, yet casual hairstyle that is suitable for both office days, and a quiet day in the park.
2. Chunky Upside Down French Braid Bun
Some women want to add a little more volume to their hair. To do that, you need a little more braiding. The chunky part at the top might look sloppy, but that is exactly the trick. Do not mind the orange color. This hairstyle looks great in any hair color.
3. Upside Down French Braid And Top Inverted Braid Into Ponytail
The classic French braid is usually the best way to utilize the upside-down braid. The French braiding technique is simple, and perfect for an upside down twist. But if you like to tweak things further, a ponytail is a great idea as well. This way, you allow your long hair to fall down and show off.
4. Upside Down Braided Ballerina Bun
One thing about braids that we all know, they are elegant. And is there anything more elegant and sophisticated than a ballerina? Known for their grace and elegance on the stage, ballerinas have to be careful with their hair. You do not want it floating around. With that in mind, this ballerina braid is great for all black-tie and black-dress events. And you can get it done within minutes.
5. Zig Zag Upside Down French Braids Into Dutch Buns
When you look at braiding techniques, the best part about them is you can combine several different techniques into one hairstyle. Now, at first glance, this hairstyle might look a little teenage-like. But do not be fooled by it. It is just an extravagant way of telling the world to “f**k off”. Think Vivienne Westwood type of show.
