Alicia Keys wore an elegant upside-down French braid at the Grammy’s and looked absolutely stunning. To copy her look, flip your head over and allow your hair to fall forward. Start your French braid at the nape of your neck and add hair as you go up, like you would for a normal French braid. When you get the top of your head, finish the braid and work the ends of your hair into a voluminous inverted loop. This style is easiest with short or shoulder length hair, but can also be done with medium to long hair with some pins.
