How To: French Braid Your Hair

French Braid Your Hair

If you are having a bad hair day or just don't feel like putting in the time to do your hair, a French braid is the perfect remedy. It is chic and easy to do. Follow these easy steps and you are all set.

Step 1 Brush out your hair

If you have long hair, use a water to detangle and tame. 

Step 2 Section your hair

Take a section of hair and divide it into three equal sections. Begin a regular braid above your ear lobes.

Step 3 French braid

After you start a regular braid, take 1/2 to 1-inch sections of loose hair from each side, joining them one a time into the main braid. Keep your braid tight and centered as you work your way down your hairline.

Step 4   Complete

When you have braided all of your hair, secure with a band. You can pull some wisps out on the side or from your bangs for a sexy look. Use hairspray to tame any flyaways. 

Tip

  • Before you start, you can use a smoothing creme or leave-in conditioner to tame you hair. If you have loose pieces when you are finished, tuck them in with bobby pins that match your hair shade or leave them for a loose, sexy look.
