The TimeHop App reminded me that I did a fun summer hair series last August. Actually, this exact post was posted 1 year ago today on August 18th. Since braids are still super trendy (I wore my hair in milkmaid braids last week + a friend texted me how to wear her hair in braids for a wedding in a few days) I know this post can still be helpful to all of you. You know the entire reason I do my blog is to help you become more confident in your style. Strive for EVERYDAY GLAM! So let’s do a blast to the past and remember these fun how-to styles.
I can’t believe our four week series has come to an end. I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed showing you 4 easy- to- recreate hairstyles. Today is one of my FAVORITE looks! This one is a great one to pull out of y0ur hat when you feeling bored with your normal look and want to add some pizzazz! The wrap-around-braid I feel is perfect for anything romantic- a picnic, date, a wedding. You name it. Let’s get started!
WRAP AROUND BRAID
Part your hair off-center (I like to part mine right where my eyebrow arches up).
Now start French braiding like you have done a million times.
Try to keep pulling your hair over to your ear. When you braid, use that tension to stay on the perimeter of your head.
Ok you have made it 3/4ths around your head. Great job!
THIS IS THE ONE TRICKY PART!!!!!!
This is where you have to switch your hands. I suggest closing your eyes and really focusing on the three strands of hair in your hand and transferring to your other hand. You must move your hands to the other side of your head to finish this process.
You got this! Don’t over think!
Fab! Keep braiding up and you’re almost home free.
Braid all the way til you reach the end of your hair.
Place the extra “tail” beside the braid. I kind of try to push the “tail” underneath the bigger braid slightly. You are going for a continuous braid.
Place and pin.
You will barely use any pins. The braid is super secure but you will need the pins for the extra hair you are trying to conceal.
MY FAVORITE PART!
Now separate the braid. This is where you can mess up your masterpiece to make it look effortless!
Just pull pieces away from the braid.
I did this entire look in 4 minutes without a mirror. I know that hand switch is a bit tricky but the more you practice the easier it will be.
Here I am rocking the wrap-around braid in Florence, Italy on my honeymoon. See how romantic! Try this out on your next date night. I think you’ll get rave reviews!
