Yay another 4 strand braid!
This one is round. I think it's less fancy than the other 4 strand braids but still nice.
Quick Tutorial: This one is a bit different. To make explaining easier: if you were to number your 4 strands the outer strand (1) has a neighbor (2) and a second neighbor (3). Seperate into four strands.
Loop the right most strand under it's neighbor and it's second neighbor. (Strand 1 will lay between 3 and 4)
Then loop the strand over it's second neighbor. (Strand 1 will lay between 2 and 3).
Same thing on the other side: loop the right most strand under it's first and second neighbor and then over it's second neighbor.
In my mind the path a strand takes is a spiral shape.
It's really easier to learn thought video thought.
Ala Bo Derek & Stevie Wonder ... While in Jamaica, thought I’d have my hair braided. It was wonderful as far as not having to deal with my strands. Until it came time to taking them out, after being worn for a week. Once I was back home and in the city it became a nightmare ! Thought, I was going to have to chop my hair off. Had my scissors handy. Talk about intense tangles. OUCH !!! NEVER again. Though, I still love and admire the style. Has anyone else had a similar experience ?
Everyday style / event or party hair.
Wanna know how to create this look?
Keep on reading below 👇🏼
1. Curl all hair using desired barrel size. I used @hottoolspro 1.25 inch iron.
2. Comb through curls with your hands
3. Clip away a 2 inch wide section along the front hair line.
4. Take all your hair behind the section you clipped away/ in the crown and brush it back.
5. Using @designmehair #puffme puff some powder in the crown from texture.
6. Secure hair into a pony tail using a small elastic.
7. Lightly pull up on the hair in the crown to create desired volume
8. Using the hair you clipped away earlier twist those pieces going back ( you’ll have to do this on both sides)
9. Taking both sides, tie them into a knot and than into another knot.
10. Secure the ends of that hair behind the pony you created in step 6.
11. Spray with @aghair texture spray and more puff me and pull apart to make it more loose and piecey.
12. Finish with @aveda #aircontrol spray for a buildable finish.
TIP: leave a few wispies out in the front for a softer look.
