I received a lot of requests for a tutorial on how I did my hair for the Britney Spears concert. It looks complicated but I’d say its difficulty level is about a medium. You have to, at minimum, know how to do a french braid, but I think this looks even cooler if you know how to do a Dutch/Inside out braid. The good news is that I’ve got an old video tutorial for a Dutch braid (with a bonus cameo from Jackie!), so if you need to learn (or need a refresher) you can watch that one first. For this braided fauxhawk tutorial, I used Annabel as my hair model but I can obviously do this style on myself, and if you’re handy with your own hair you can, too!

For the braided fauxhawk, you need:
Hair clips (for sectioning the hair)
Bobby pins
Clear elastic hair ties

A note: this is what I mean by divide the hair into three sections – I didn’t get a good angle on the video. You want a small section on the very top of the head, with the rest of the hair being divided evenly.
