The classic braid can be endlessly varied: fishtail, ring braids, headband braids … We'll show you 5 different styles you can do at home!
- Take a small section of hair from one side. Make sure that it isn’t too close to your ear or to your parting.
- Braid the section and fasten with a hairband.
- Pull on the sides of the braid to loosen a little.
- Do a centre parting then pull the braid across the front of your forehead and attach firmly on the other side of your head.
Spray your hair with Salt Spray before braiding it for additional texture.
- Put up your hair in a low ponytail and tie with a small elastic band. Split the ponytail into two tails. Take a very small section from the outside of the right tail.
- Place the small hair section over the right tail and put it in with the hair in the left tail just where the two sections meet.
- Now take another small section of hair from the left tail and do the same thing as before but put it in the right tail.
- Repeat this procedure until you have braided the whole ponytail. Tie with a rubber band and pull the sides of the braid to loosen. Cut off the upper elastic band.
