Hair Braiding Styles

First and foremost…this is NOT something I did whatsoever and want to make sure you all are aware of it. I promise I will get some of my own how to’s up…because embarrassingly, I only have one so far….yikes!

I am so glad I came across this on the interwebs. I have so many people in my chair who want to do something with their beautiful long locks and are bored just having it hang so I love giving my recommendations of other techniques to have fun and try something new! I have honestly tried myself these all and it’s fun for especially summer to get your hair off your back. You don’t need super long hair to do these styles either ( it makes it just a little bit easier though). Anyways, love this website, Refinery29. (Once you click that, it will take you directly to their tutorials). Hope these ideas help!!

(I don’t know where I found this, but whosever blog I snatched this from, thank you!!)

Holy cats is there so many braids out these days…I just can’t believe all the types you can do and incorporate into an updo. I just wanted to clarify these. It made me think of a guest in my chair figuring out which braid to do and she couldn’t remember the name! So hope this helps you all out- there are probably more than the ones I’ll be naming but hey, it’s a start! I believe I have already talked about this, but we probably added more.

You can also combine- like this. Reverse braid dutch style.

Happy braiding!

Beautiful Braids:

I love all these styles of braids out there. If you feel like your hair or your bangs doesn’t want to cooperate with you, I swear, thebraids work to fix it.

And how could we all forget about the beautiful fishtail braid?

Found a great how-to for you guys too!

Braided Updo How To

So I did this updo on myself today and I loved it. It’s so easy to do yourself it will blowwww your mind! ( I am trying this post from my phone so I hope this works).
Here’s the how to:
1. Take bigger sections of hair and braid them. ( roughly 5 sections). With each braid, wrap with a small hair band.
2. Take each braid and start linking and bobby pinning. ( pull one horizontally across, pin. Take one diagonally and pin.
3. Tuck any remaining hairs and bobby pin. Spray with a hairspray.

Wahla! Your beautiful updo is now complete. Hope this helps make a change in your style.
