Of course, some of us are more gifted in the hair department than others, and while your best friend can create an upside-down French-braid bun in the time it takes you to google “how to braid,” you may need a little bit of extra help. And that’s where we come in.
From a waterfall braid to a chain braid to a good old French braid we have collated all the famous, stylish and chic braids for you to re-create. Read on to get yourself the braid you love!
- French Braids
After reading this we are sure you’ll be creating French braids on your own at every occasion and with the utmost ease. Start by brushing your hair with a boar-bristle paddle brush until it’s smooth or if you have curly hair, try gently finger-detangling to avoid destroying your curl pattern. Apply a coin size amount of BBLUNT Intense Moisture Hair Serum on the mid-lengths of your hair. Then, using a rat-tail comb or your fingers, section off the triangle of hair from your forehead to the crown of your head. Split the section into three pieces and three-strand braid them, making sure to incorporate more hair from each side of your head each time you cross the hair over. Continue braiding and feeding in sections until you reach the ends, then tie off with an elastic. Easy peasy? You will master French braids in no time.
- Rope Braids
Have you ever wanted one of these? We mean, rope braids are actually very easy to create but they look like a lot of effort has been put into them. To get yourself a rope braid, brush your hair back into a ponytail, tying off with an elastic. Rub a dab of BBLUNT Repair Remedy Leave-In Cream between your fingertips it’ll help keep stray hairs in place while you style your hair. Then split the ponytail into two sections, then twist each section inward in the same direction. Then, cross and twist the two sections together, securing the ends with an elastic band.
- French Fishtail Braids
A holy union of fishtail and French braids is on your way! Unless you are blessed with curly hair, curl your hair first to give your hair some added texture and grip. Apply some of the BBLUNT Pr Mist on some of the BBLUNT Hot Shot Heat Protection Hair Mist before you curl your hair for even more hold and protection. Next, create a deep part over the arch of one eyebrow, then divide your hair in half down the middle. French-braid each side of your hair, clipping the braids in place when you reach the nape of your neck. Undo the clips and three-strand braid the two sections together twice—just two passes to join them together, before switching to a fishtail braid. Fishtail braid the rest of your hair together, tying the ends with an elastic.
- Waterfall Braids
The most unique and one of the toughest braids to achieve are waterfall braids. Start by center-parting your hair or you can do a little off to the side if you’re not a middle-part person, begin French-braiding your hair from your hairline to your temple. Next, while still holding your three sections, continue French-braiding, but instead of crossing the outer piece the one nearest your face, rather than the ceiling), drop it. Yup, literally just drop it down with the rest of your hair, so you’re only holding two sections now.
Then continue the French-braid part: Grab another section of hair from your hairline, add it to your braid like normal, and braid it. But when it comes time to cross that outer section over, just drop it. Basically, you’re only French-braiding one half of the section. Continue braiding until you reach the back of your head, then repeat on the other side. Join the two sections in back, pinning in place. Once, done spray some of the BBLUNT Spotlight Hair Polish For High Shine to make sure your hair shines like a disco ball.
