    Default Rapunzel (Disney's Tangled) Braid for shorter hair - instructions included

    So, as the now Rapunzel-obsessed girl that I am, I spent most of the second viewing of Disney's Tangled working out the crazy braid she has in the city.
    Now, I know that it's impossible, both because her hair is impossibly long and because the braid itself defies the laws of physics, but I wanted to try anyway.
    Here's the original (the best picture I could find, they didn't have any details of the braid, and the flowers sort of obscure the braid, but trust me, it looks like mine...sort of):


    Here's mine:


    And these are the instructions:
    Step 1
    part hair in an extreme side part (to recreate that almost-bangs swoosh she has), then divide hair into 3 parts, as if you were making a braid. Tie off the two side parts with hair ties, and then braid two accent braids from the bottom of the middle section.


    Step 2
    Braid the middle section.


    Step 3
    Now, section off the bottom of the side sections so you have a large top section and a small bottom section, and tie off the bottom part of the left side (it doesn't really matter, just choose one) and the top part on the right side.

    Step 4
    Start a dutch braid with the top section of the left side and continue across the head to the bottom section of the right side.


    Step 5
    Repeat with the right side.


    Step 6
    Begin braiding the three big braids together, adding the two accent braids in a little later. Finish the braid and tie it off.


    Step 7
    Sing and see if it glows!

    Sorry natatatt, the pictures are from my album, and you can't see album pictures until you post 25 times. Wait a while, then come back.

    That is wonderful - thank you for the instructions.

    My hair is too thin to do this now, though! (I really ought to update my profile picture...)
