1. Simple and Classy — I love this hairstyle because it adds flair to ordinary curls
Step 1: For curling my hair I use the Next Gen iron by Hot Tools, 1 1/4 extra long barrel. When I curl, I keep the clamp open while wrapping the hair around the iron. I leave about 1 inch at the bottom out to keep length and add to the messy look.
Step 2: After curling your hair, grab a section and do a three strand braid.
Step 3: Once braided, leave about 3 inches of the bottom unbraided and use a hair elastic to secure the ends. Pull the braid to create a fuller look.
2. A Braid Within a Braid — I chose this next style because when I wear it on myself I can’t go anywhere without someone stopping me and commenting on it, I always tell them it’s simpler than it really looks, which is true!
Step 1: Pull your hair to the side, grab a section of hair underneath and make a three strand braid. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.
Step 2: Take the unbraided hair and create a fishtail braid. So now you have one three strand braid and one fishtail braid.
Step 3: Place the three strand braid in the center of the fishtail and use bobby pins to pin the two braids together.
Step 1: After creating your wavy curls, grab the section of hair above your ear and french braid about 4 inches of it, then finish braiding the remainder in a three strand braid.
Step 2:Braid the hair and leave a good 3 inches at the end unbraided, securing with a hair elastic. Start pulling out the braid to give it a fuller look.
Step 3:Grab the rest of your hair and pull it into a ponytail. I like positioning the ponytail just below the crown of my head. Then grab the braid and add it into the pony tail.
4.The Crown Fishtail Braid is my absolute favorite! It really stands out, mainly because of the color depth created by the slightly darker extensions!
Step 1: Grab a section of hair at the top of your part, including the front extension.
Step 2: I made a Dutch fishtail… similar to a normal fishtail but, instead of braiding the strands over each other, they weave under one another.
Step3: PULL APART! This will help to create texture. And because the hair (both yours and the extension) is all one length, it will not fall out no matter how much you pull!
Step 4: This is what the first braid looks like. Repeat steps 1-3 on the other side of your head.
Step 5: Pull the fishtails to the back of your head, and place one underneath the other. For my sister’s hair, I used several bobby pins to secure the braids. I also used bobby pins to to mask the elastics.
