Hi, I'm Michelle Simone and I'm a Hairstylist. And today, I'm going to show you how to braid your hair, short hair for waves. So, once your hair is wet and you've toweled, towel dried it, you're going to take your hair into two sections and to make French braids. If your hair is longer, you can do a regular braid and that will give you larger waves in your hair. The bigger the braid you use, the bigger the wave. The smaller the wave, the tighter the wave. For this we're going to do a French braid because I thin it's easier with your short hair to get all of your hair into it. It also makes the most even wave all the way through your hair. So, to make the French braid, you're just going to start by taking the top section, split it into three and braid the top section over the middle and then right section over the middle. Take a piece from the top near your part, add it to the left section and fold it over the middle. Same thing on the right, grab a piece, add it to the right section and go over the middle. You're going to go all the way through your hair this way down to the bottom. What's nice when your hair is wet and it's short is that more of the pieces are likely to stay in place. Whereas when your hair is dry, sometimes you get the straight pieces that fall out. So, you can do this hairstyle at night before you go to bed or you can just wear it in the French braids out for the day. By the end of the day, your hair will be nice and way when you pull it out. Once you get to the bottom, just secure it with a hair band. I like to only wrap it twice because the looser the hair band, the less likely you are to get a kink in your hair at the bottom. But, then you're going to go ahead and just do the same thing to the other side. You're going to take the top section, split it into three and start folding over, adding a little piece at a time; exact same thing on the other, as on the other side. So, once you've braided it all the way down, you can let your hair dry, either by sleeping on it or with a blow dryer, whichever you have enough time for and then when you take it out, it will be a really nice, even wave all throughout your hair. So, we just showed you how to braid short wet hair for waves.
