Elegant Braid Hairstyle

When it comes to prom, this sophisticated and coiffed style is sure to turn heads. With the detailing that is evident through the back of the hairstyle, there are many options available when styling hair in this manner. Here are some instructions that can help you to create this braided hairstyle – at home!

1. First gather all the tools that are necessary to create the style. This will include texturizing products, styling pins, finishing spray and embellishments or hair accessories if you prefer.

2. This style is best created on hair that has some texture, rather than hair that has been completely straightened or just washed. Use texturizing products to create waves within the dry hair before starting the style.

3. Pull the hair back to one side, and have a friend or family member create a loose French braid, from the entire section of the hair. Find a friend that knows how to create the loose French braid, or search for instructions on the internet that can help you to create the style.

4. While styling the hair, pull the braid to one side and ensure that the braid is kept loose and stylish. The braid should include the entire back and side portions of the hair. The front portions of the hair can be pulled towards the front and clipped, as this will be styled later.

5. Creating texture and waves within the hair with the use of a curling iron can be helpful and after creating these curls within the hair, they can be pinned into the braid to become a part of the back detailing of this hairstyle.

6. To finish the braid and avoid the loose ends, pin the end of the braid up inside of the style to one side. This can help the individual to create a style that is sophisticated and appears finished.

7. Lastly, the hair in the front should be curled and then pulled back to be tucked into the braid. This sophisticated yet simple style is an effective way to bring attention to your sense of cool collectiveness, a la Jennifer Aniston or Kate Hudson on the red carpet.
To start learning braiding French plait yourself, it is good if you start from hair which is longer.
Work with slightly wet or slightly dirty hair, or use a spray mist on your hair if you have shampooed clean hair. This is because clean strands of hair will be difficult to work with, as they will not stay in place.
So start by taking a small section of hair from the front of your hair. Then pull it backwards and separate this section of hair into three equal parts. Hold one part in right hand and the rest two in left hand.
To cross the layers, take the hair part in your right hand and place it over the section of the center, then take the section in the left hand and cross it over in the middle. Repeat this step again.
To make this braid look like a French braid hairstyle, you need to keep adding sections of your hair in with each left and right hand intake. These intakes should be maintained as even as possible, to make your French braid look good.
For a softer look make a loose braid, for a neat looking braid pull the hair tighter.
