Wrap Around French Braid Tutorial
I would have to say that this wrap around french braid is my favorite and my most go-to hair-do. It’s quick and easy and looks super adorable!
If any of you out there don’t know how to do a french braid, they are very easy to do. At first they may seem complicated, but with practice they are so easy to whip out. The basic idea of it is just like a three stranded braid. To do a braid you just cross the right strand over the middle strand and then you cross the left strand over the middle strand. Then repeat. For the french braid, before you cross the right strand over pick up a little section of hair that is lying down on the right hand side and include it in your right strand braid. Then you cross it over into the middle just like a braid. Then you do the same thing on the left. I hope that makes sense.
So to begin the Wrap Around French Braid just part your daughter’s hair on either side of her face.
Then you will take a section from the part and take it on down to her ear.
From here you will divide this into the 3 strands for your braid.
Now just cross the right strand of hair over into the middle and then the left strand over into the middle
From here you will start the French Braid. When you take your strands make sure you are taking them in an up and down section. This will turn the braid on its side as you go around her head.
Then you can turn and go around the backside.
Once you get almost to her other ear you will have a large chunk of hair left over. Just pick it up and include it in a pony tail.
Then secure with an elastic.
Spray with hairspray and add a flower or bow and your done!
If you want you can continue the braid all the way to the ends if you prefer. Also this looks great on any age. I have done this braid on my friend for her family pictures and also for one of the teenagers in our neighborhood for a school dance. So cute, fast and fun!
