How to 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.
- 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.
