I first shared this on Instagram last week and then later on our Facebook page and I had many asking for a video tutorial. It was something I did on a whim as we were heading out the door for our weekly summer movie fun. But we had a bit of time the other day and so we put together a video showing how we did it.
It’s sort of a combination of the following 3 hairstyles or techniques we’ve done in the past.
This cute style comes mainly from our Double 1 Sided French Braids
And lastly the Ladder Braid
Watch our video to see how we combined all three to get this pretty style:
Step 1 – Make side part
Step 2 – Section out small triangle of hair
Step 3 – Plait one section and start adding hair only to the top
Step 4 – Start “feathering” the braid
Once you’ve added hair on top and have reached the end of your part, start feathering the bottom part of the braid. Watch our video HERE to see how to feather the braid.
Step 5 – Secure end of braid with rubber band
Step 6 – Make a 2nd braid
Right under the first braid, start the process over again, adding hair only to the top of the braid.
Step 7 – Add feathered pieces
Once you’ve braided down and are about even with where the feathering from the first braid starts, add the “feathers” into your 2nd braid instead of grabbing hair as you’d previously done. This will give it the “ladder” look.
Step 8 – Secure the 2nd braid with a rubber band
