A Braid Of A Time


A while a go I did a 7 days of hair styles check it out here but recently I saw a post on Pinterest from Latest Hairstyles on how to do a head band braid and I couldn't believe how easy it was, here's the link but I decided to change it a little bit and add a curl.

So here's the before picture, Freshly washed hair blow dried up side down to add a little lift.

This is all you need, you could always use your straighteners to curl but I wanted to have a loose curl.  

The first step is to section the hair behind your ears and clip the back section behind.

Next clip the middle section back leaving you with two section on each side

Now braid both section of hair moving them upwards as you do it fastened with a clear band untill your left with something like this.

Next its time to add the curl making sure the bottom is curlier then the top moving the top sections backwards as you do so.

Now clip the front section back moving one braid across and over your head pinning where the other braid starts.

Then repeat across the other side using the braids to hide any tell tell signs

Now remove the clip and style the hair bringing it forward to cover the sides. Spray with hair spray and your done.
