First off — I’ve had a few comments about hair classes from a few gals – one about possibly coming to Vegas (which actually might be a possibility cuz I might be heading there towards the end of the year!), and a few others w/questions. Only problem is — I can’t e-mail you back, as you have the “no reply” issue through google. So I’ve tried to reply on your blog — but your blogs are private. So I can’t answer you at all! Please e-mail me direct, if you want more info! My e-mail is babesinhairland [at] g-mail [dot] com! I hate not to be able to get back to you if you really are interested! 🙂
Ok, so sorry, I didn’t know what to call this, but for a long name, there really isn’t much to it. I did this on Bug Sunday, and didn’t take step-by-step, but I think it’s pretty self-explanatory.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about when I say “Uneven 3 strand braid” — Go HERE — that’ll show you the technique for this. Once again – nothing really hard about it – it’s just like it says – an uneven 3 strand braid!
Part the hair off to 1 side. I did a random zig zag part on the right side. Then part straight down from that part to the ear. Proceed to make an uneven 3 stranded braid with that section of hair & tie it off w/a rubber band.
Take the rest of the hair that is remaining and smooth it back to start making an uneven braid offset to the left side of the head. Once you’ve got your 3 sections of hair, ready to start braiding, make the first plait (do 1 round of the braid!), and when you go to cross the section from the right over, include your accent braid that you made just a second ago. So you will be incorporating your “accent” braid into the braid that starts at the nape of the neck. You want to have the braid off set to the left of the head, so the accent braid appears to “wrap” across the top of the braid.
I made the braid at the nape of the neck uneven as well, but it’s not as noticeable with the thicker hair, as it is on the accent braid on the right side of her head. You can do a regular braid or whatever type of twist you like for that part.
I left the rubber band in the accent braid, and it just got hidden in the hair as I braided. You can remove it if you want if you have a band that’s color would be noticeable in the hair. Braid down as far as you like. I stopped half way down and secured it with a rubber band. Curled the end with my flat iron & away we went. The darling white bow is from Flowerz in Her Hair.
There you have it – quick & easy ready for church!
