Curly Style: Braid
TEXTURED & LOOSE. Start at the right side of the head. Part hair along parietal ridge ending at the crown, clip for control.
Below parting, at hairline, take a vertical 2 inch section and divide into two equal horizontal sub-sections.
Twist both sub-sections to the right four times, then cross over the left.
Begin to incorporate hair into the braid by adding approximately ½ inch of hair behind each of the sub-sections.
Repeat twisting and rope braiding technique. Continue in this manner, following the contour of the head, along the nape. Stop when you reach the ear.
For a more intricate look, continue to braid in a “U” pattern along the back of the head up to the crown.
Starting behind the ear on the left side, repeat rope braid technique directing forward.
When recession area is reached, continue braiding to the ends and secure with elastic.
If length permits, wrap braid across front hairline, use bobby pins to secure.
