If you’re new around here, you may not know how much I love braids. I even wrote a book about braids!
Normally I do most of my braid tutorials in straight hair as it’s easier to see the steps. It’s also easier to recreate the styles exactly when I’m shooting tutorials.
In real life, I wear my natural curls a lot and you’ll often find me wearing braids too. I like to wear a half-up braid style on day 2 or 3 while my curls look good out. After that, I will braid all my hair up into a Dutch braid or crown braid. This high crown braid is my favourite.
I can almost braid with my eyes closed now but it wasn’t always that way. I taught myself how to braid and started with simple styles like this. Keep practising until you feel comfortable with a style before trying a new one. Before you know it, you’ll have a whole hair-drobe of hairstyles you can do in minutes.
In today’s video, I share 5 quick tips for braiding curly hair and an easy tutorial for this half-up braid. And yes, that hairbrush is my microphone!
