The tools you'll need to style up these Kim Kardashian-inspired Ibiza braids are:
- Three see-through hair elastics
- Sectioning clips/hair ties
- HK Hair Extensions (optional)
- Backcombing brush
The first step in our Kim Kardashian-inspired Ibiza braids tutorial is to begin by dividing your hair into three sections: two smaller sections on either side of your face, and one larger section at the back. We find it's easiest to tie the back section up in a ponytail to keep it out of the way, especially if you choose to volumize your locks with some gorgeously thick HK Hair Extensions!
To create the first of your Kim Kardashian-esque braids, take up a piece of hair at the back of the section of hair on the right-hand side of your face. To copy Kim's pulled-back effect, you'll need to weave a kind of half-French braid, so begin by splitting the piece of hair into three sections. Continue to braid your hair, adding in extra horizontal sections of hair from the front only. The key to this look is to keep your French plait nice and tight - and to position it as far back as you can.
When you run out of extra hair, finish with a normal three-strand braid all the way to the tips of your hair. Tie your braid off with a see-through hair elastic to secure it in place, and then repeat steps two and three to create an identical braid on the left-hand side of your face.
When you've completed both Kim Kardashian Ibiza braids, tie them both together with another see-through hair elastic underneath the ponytail at the back of your head. Now you can undo the ponytail and replace the rest of your tresses over the top of the braids to disguise the join! If you want to give your hairstyle an extra touch of Kardashian-inspired glamour, use a backcombing brush to tease the hair at the crown of your head before smoothing it down for a voluptuous look.
And there you have it - Ibiza braids that Kim Kardashian herself would be proud of! For a boho look, try curling your tresses and wearing them forwards over your shoulders - or for a more sleek, Kardashian-approved take on the look, keep your locks poker straight and sweep them to the back.
