How to:

  1. Curl hair with this wand (see this video) – brush the curls & spray with this dry shampoo for a more relaxed/romantic look.
  2. Part hair to the right or left side, then begin a normal braid using the front section.
  3. Braid the hair in the direction you want it to lay – for this style, angle the braid towards the back of your head.
  4. Use a little bit of Kenra Styling wax on on the hair your braiding to prevent them from getting frizzy.
  5. Pull on each ‘loop’ in the braid to create a fuller look – do this as your braiding and at the end.
  6. Create two more simple braids using strands from the front of your head.
  7. Secure the braids in back by teasing a little bit of hair and then criss crossing bobby pins.
  8. Cover the pins by teasing & layering a few pieces from the back of your head over top of the pins.
