A warrior braid is typically made with long hair but can also be done on short hair. It is most often braided, starting at the nape of the neck and ending at the crown of the head. There are different ways to create a warrior braid; we have provided a video tutorial to help you see how it’s done.
With a bit of patience, effort, and creativity, you can turn your basic ponytail into a fierce updo for any occasion! The braided version entails gathering up your locks at the nape of your neck, twisting them into a pony, then pulling them through from underneath before creating two braids that wind round in opposite directions till they meet again on top of your head. Wrap with a band to hold everything in place.
Creativity can take this style to a new level too. If you want to give some flair to your warrior braid, use pins, ribbons, or lovely hair combs to convert it into a warrior crown! The warrior crown is overwhelmingly the most popular choice for bridesmaid hairstyles at the moment because it is practical and easy to create, depending on the length of your hair.
