Tips for braiding your hair

Brush before your braid – You don’t want any knots when you’re braiding so brush your hair before you start. Only exception to this is curly hair, but you should be able to run your fingers through your hair before you start so that you don’t get tangled.

Stretch it out – If you have fine or thin hair, pull at the sides of your braid to make it appear wide. It will make your hair look thicker.

You don’t need long hair – You can braid your fringe/bangs or front layers. Check out these braids for short hair.

Are you game to try this Fox in Flats style dare and braid your hair for seven consecutive days? Remember to tag your pics #braiddare if you’re sharing them on Twitter or Instagram. (You can find me online as @hairromance!)
