3 Chic Hairstyles With Braids

I came across these a couple of days ago. I have linked them to the main sources where you can go and read the instructions in detail and explore their blogs. The hairstyles might be a bit tricky to pick up at first but the end results would be worthy.

Braid up the side- Section out all of the hair from your ear forward on one side of your part, and clip everything else aside for later.
-Proceed to braid up the side by your ear.  You can do one braid, two braid, or even three if your hair is thick enough.  You can also do any type of braid - fishtail, regular, twist braid, whatever you want.

-Once your braids are complete, combine them with the remaining hair and put it in a ponytail as you normally would. Read about the rest of the hairstyles on her blog.

Crown of Braids- Pay attention to steps 3 & 4. This should be easy enough with a few bobby pins and a bit of hairspray.

Half Braid- Just see the pictures for a guide to do the hairstyle on your own. Check her blog out for more amazing hairstyles with her easy to do picture guides.

    1. amen to that..i need to grow out my layers a bit to get the 1st and 2nd one done correctly..

  4. I can't wait to see you try this Debi! You have such gorgeous and thick hair perfect for braids! I haven't tried braiding in quite some time :)

  5. So, did you try out these braids too? It reminds me of Katniss' braided looks for Hunger Games! By the way, I finally saw the film last night, since I didn't want to see it until I had finished the books. They were better than I expected, after hearing the director panned for his interpretation. The actors may not have physically looked like I imagined them but they, and the film crew, did a good job of getting the underlying tensions, alternating between slow, fixed scenes and frenetic camera movement. -- J xxxx
