One of my favorite things about dolls is fixing their hair!
Today I have a loose braid that will add texture and style to any up-do! This braid looks a whole lot fancier to make than it actually is.
My sis showed me this braid during the summer and the first time I saw it I thought for sure it was some kind of french braid but no, it’s just a simple braid. Yes, a simple braid with a few tricks up my sleeve!
Grace already wears a braid well but the loose braid dresses it up her do!
To make the loose side braid, take a small section of hair at the part.
Split the hair into three sections and reverse braid a couple inches. See how thin and small the braid is?
Now this is where the magic begins! Hold the braid end with one hand and pull out the sections of the braid one at a time with the other hand.
Work down the braid pulling each section, making it evenly loose all the way down. If you need to, braid down a few more inches and continue pulling each of those sections loose. Add a hairband at the end when finished.
Now you can pin up the side braid or add it to you favorite style. I am adding the side braid to a french braid.
In keeping with the loose style, pull out the sections of the french braid. Add a hairband to the french braid.
Pull the side braid back to the french braid and band them together.
I love the luscious, thick, braid, made in a snap and draped to the side. Thanks sis! Awesome hairstyle!
I can’t wait to try the loose bread technique to different hairstyles!
