Hair Braid

Braids have been a massive crazy in my school lately, but most people just take their own hair and braid it. However, I’m not one to follow the usual craze so I decided to add a bit of colour to mine!
This is a really easy way to spice up your hair in a unique way and you can personalise it with whatever colour you want! I like to look up the meaning of colours and relate it to my life.

For this tutorial you will need a large clip to section off your hair, some bobby pins to catch the fly aways, embroidery thread (or any kind of thread/yarn that won’t lose colour) , a small toothed comb to backcomb the section of hair, scissors to cut the excess thread and hairspray to keep it in place.

Firstly, find section of hair that you want the braid to be in, from this section select about an half inch section of hair (I would recommend behind the ear)

Take the embroidery thread and measure a length roughly 1 and a half of your hair length, root to tip.  Set this aside and split the half inch section into two.

Take one of the sections and knot the thread onto it (NOTE: this can be tricky and fiddly). Repeat this a few times until it’s tight. Backcomb lightly just underneath the knot and spray with hairspray to secure it. Cut off the excess shorter string.

This should leave you with three strands, two hair strands and one thread strand.

Taking these three strands, create a normal braid down to about an inch from the tip.

To finish the braid and keep it in place, create the knot that is demonstrated in the picture below. Repeat this knot as many times as you feel necessary. Finish the braid by creating a small regular knot and spraying with hairspray to seal it, and cut off the excess thread.

And you’re done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful. This look is perfect for spring and summer to brighten up your average hair!

One thought on “Hair Braid

  1. A braid (also called plait) is a complex structure or pattern formed by intertwining three or more strands of flexible material such as textile fibres, wire, or human hair. Compared to the process of weaving a wide sheet of cloth from two separate, perpendicular groups of strands (warp and weft), a braid is usually long and narrow, with each component strand functionally equivalent in zigzagging forward through the overlapping mass of the others.
