Have you caught the rest of our series on hairstyles? If not, start here and go from the beginning! Enjoy!
4. French: You can do this in pig tails or one braid. You can start in the front or the back of the head. This technique is used in many hairstyles. Section the hair off in three equal sections. Braid one time. As you continue take small sections that are even and parallel to the braid and incorporate them over the section you have on the left and right each time you braid.
5. Inside Out: This braid is the same as a French braid only when you are braiding you bring the extra hair under each time you incorporate the hair.
6. Fish Tail: Divide the hair into 2 parts. Take small pieces from the back of the two larger sections, cross to the other section and incorporate. Repeat on opposite sides until get to end of the hair.
18.French Twist: Gather all of the hair at the nape of the neck. Starting at the base of the gathered hair, twist upward smoothing the top hair as you go. Tuck left over hair down under the twist when you get to the top. Pin by putting bobby pins into the outside of the twist and flipping the opposite direction while pinning into hair by the scalp.
19. Beach Curls:
Taking smaller sections of hair, wrap around the curling iron barrel. I like to hold on the end of the strand the whole time and not readjust it so it twists a little bit as I wrap it around the barrel. This allows the ends to look more tapered and natural versus flat. After curling all your hair, flip your hair over (I like to bend over and do this) and either run your fingers through your hair or mess it up by scratching your scalp but not hurting your scalp. This just loosens up the curls making them more full and more natural looking.
