Butterfly Braid

A dutch braid that looks like a chain of butterflies landed.

More Base Braids

Here is the second style from our previous canvas.

A canvas is a braid done up to a point. After the base part of the braid is done…you can create dozens of styles from that base canvas.

canvasThis style has several mini two-strand knot braids. Use the accent strands to create as many as you need to make the style the way you wish.

chained 9When you have created as many mini two-strand knot braids as you need…bobby pin the tails of each in place. Secure the style using as many bobby pins as it takes.

Base Braids

Creating a canvas full of potential.

I like to braid up to a certain point and use that braid to create several different hairstyles. This is something I refer to as a canvas.

canvasThis is a nine-strand single braid with accent strands left out and the tail is sectioned out into accent strands. Once it gets to this point anything can be done with the accent strands. Dozens of possibilities are available only limited by your imagination.

A and B how toToday I will show you the rope and loose style. Use the accent strands to make a few mini rope accents. Loop the ropes in a pleasing manner and loop the loose hair around the ropes.

loops and ropesA nice dress for the client and pretty gems or jewels for the style complete the entire look. What will you do with the accent strands?

Adding Fake Hair

Neon or natural?

That is the question I ask myself when contemplating adding bobby pin hair extensions into a day hairstyle.

heart fakeThe person, special occasion, and availability answer each situation as it arises. Today it is pretty easy to find hair extensions to match any hair color. Both real and fake hair are priced reasonable.

3-strand, french, lace, heart, push-up rope, mini three _(5)Give it a try. Add something extra to your hairstyle and see how easy it is to get the look you are going for. Take a photo. We would love to see!

Fringe Braids

There are four kinds of Fringe Braids

Basic: The simplest is the basic fringe. All the hair is incorporated in the form.

Accent: The accented fringe uses strands of hair to add pretty accents to the style.

Cascade: The cascade fringe leaves half the hair down to soften the look.

Accented Cascade: And finally, the accented cascade fringe both leaves half the hair down and adds accents for beauty.

variation 4As you can see the fringe can be created using any number of strands that you desire. Feel free to use any accent on the fringe form when you are accenting. I have yet to use one that does not look good.

Feather Loose

Super loose braids can be super pretty.

Add a touch of elegance to your french braid today. Braid it as loose as you can to get that feathery feel. Tuck up the tail under the braid to finish off the look.
