Elsa Inspired Braid

So, I love the movie Frozen {we own the movie and sound track and and I know basically all the songs by heart}. This braid came into being kind of by accident. I started a french braid, but it ended up way over on the right side of my head, but it looked like a spin on Elsa's braid. I tweaked a little bit, and here is my result!

Start with your hair brushed out.
1. Begin to french braid it {if you don't know how, I have steps here}, but do it off towards the right {or left} side of your head. You can make it as close to that side of your head as you want, though I have found it works better the closer it is to the right {or left}.
2. Continue to do this and when you reach the nape of your neck, guide the braid over your neck as you braid it normally so that the braid will naturally fall over your shoulder.
When you reach the nape of your neck, you can also fishtail or dutch braid it instead of the regular braid. A dutch braid is just like a normal braid, except in reverse. The first strand goes under instead of over the middle one. I will have a fishtail braid tutorial coming up soon.
