But for beginners it will demand much time and efforts. Nevertheless, do not be afraid and take the challenge. A little practice will help you soon. If you do not know how to braid, then better ask your friend or sister to help you, rather than suffer alone.
As all of us know that we need the hair not to be very clean for braiding, since it will be difficult to keep the hair together, especially if you have cashmere like soft hair. For this either start braiding when the hair has been washed for a day or two, or simply apply hairspray to make it stay. Make sure to have a full bottle of a hairspray not to economize, since you will hardly like when after your hard efforts the hair gets undone soon. Also prepare a set of bobby pins and ties or bands to secure your hair once you finish.

Unlike an ordinary braid, when you start either from the two sides of the head or from the middle, for this respect you will have to start braiding from the bottom of your head. Pull your hair forward and start braiding from the hair above your neck zone. As usual, gather a section of hair, divide it into three sections and start braiding and gradually add hair from the sides. Do not worry, this is not that difficult, it only needs some time to learn the techniques to be a real pro. Once your fingers get adapted to the procedure you will be a success.
Go braiding upwards, and once you reach the height you want, stop braiding and secure the braid with pins. Once you have the braid it is time to think about the knot. Gather the rest of your hair and either with a brush or with the help of your fingers straighten your hair and make a ponytail. Then wrap the hair round the ponytail to get a top knot. You can have a tight top knot, or a messy one, you can let it a little loose and let some strands fall down.
With the job accomplished you get a very glamorous, dramatic look with the inverted French braid top knot. Never consider it a difficult task and hurry up to try on your hair. Once you create this whimsical look, you will not stop admiring its effect. Make your hair carry a trendy style on and amaze everybody with your creative and sophisticated look.
