Braids are a huge trend for the Summer months so this tutorial is for such a great braid. The Lace Braid is such an easy braid to do and once you have mastered the technique you can create all sorts of designs! This tutorial is just for the simple braided bang or hanging braid look!
Start by sectioning the hair at the front of your face or your bang if you have one. You can start this braid as far over as you like, but we think it looks best from your parting! Split the front section into 3 small bits ready to start your braid.
Now you need to start your braid...start with the section closes to your head. Now you need to add a section into this so section your hair from along your parting and add this to the next section you will be moving. This is where the Lace Braid differs to the normal french braid....you don’t want to pull this tightly as you want the braid to hang!
Instead of adding in more hair from the other side just braid the next two sections as normal. Again when you get to the next section of hair moving away from your head...add in another section from the line of your parting. Continue down as much of your hair as you like and secure with an elastic!
It really is as easy as that! Why not add another braid by the side for a super cute Summer style!?
What’s really great about the method for this braid is only adding hair from one section allows you to shape the braid! This method is used for completing S Braids, Wrapped Pony Braids and the heart Braid! Learning this easy method does open up loads more styles for you to try!
Do you think this is a style you will be trying out? Is this already a favourite style of yours? We’d love to see your pics of the style...be sure to tag us on Tumblr so we can take a peek!
