Braids have been a staple in the hair world for centuries now- and it's no wonder! With so many ways to style this cute hair-do, you can really do anything. One trend that has been sticking around for a while is the lace braid- very similar to a French braid except instead of pulling hair from both sides, you only add hair to one side of the braid. It's so cute and a great way to mix up your every day do.
Here's how:
Step 1: Separate the section of your hair to be braided — from the rest of your hair.
Step 2: This braid can go from ear to ear, or start at your part, so start braiding either at the beginning of your part or just behind one ear as you would a French braid. (Warning: tired arms ahead!)
Step 3: When you’re ready to start adding pieces of hair, only add hair to the top side of the braid. For the other side just keep braiding but don’t pick up anymore hair to add in. Continue braiding across to your ear or around to the back of your head.
Step 4: After you finish braiding the entire section, end the braid with a small elastic. If you wear your hair down, you can use bobby pins to secure the braid from moving around. Or you can work the braid into a low chignon. However you choose to wear it, you’ll have a built-in headband that keeps the hair off your face and looks great!
