1. Start of with straight, curly or wavy hair. I prefer doing my braids when my hair is curly. I just think it looks super cute and messier than the regular straight braids that girls sport.
Method 1: For a Tighter Braid You can take the piece closest to your face and bring it in front of your middle section of hair and place it there. Then bring the section of hair farthest from your hair over the middle section. Then just proceed doing the same thing over and over until you reach the tip of your hair and secure it with a hair tie.
Method 1: For a Messy Look. Now use your fingers to loosen up your braid. Just pull slightly on each row of the braid to give it a fuller look. This gives the braid a messier appearance. You can also add a cute headband to complete the messy braid look.
Method 2: For a Sleek Look. If you want a sleeker looking braid, just leave the braid tight and pull the hair tie tight to secure the look. Also you can use hairspray to tame any fly a ways.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I love braids and this is my go to hair style when my hair is in the way. It's also a way to get cute loose curls if you sleep on it over night. You can do so many other cute looks through just a braid, so I'll be showing you some more cute looks with braids over the next couple weeks.
