Hi, my name is Krystal, and I'm going to explain to you a couple different ways to do weighted styles to get curly or wavy hair. Again there is a number of different ways that you can do it and a number of different braids. I have two examples right here. The most important part is prepping the hair. You want to do it on slightly damp hair or towel dried hair and you want to put a little bit of mousse or hair gel in your hair before you braid them. If you have a friend helping you, it's best to do two French braids like the one on the right hand side. You would just do it on the second side of your head or if you are doing it yourself, you can split your hair into four different sections and just do braid each section, just take right from the end and braid it all the way down into ponytails and then you just sit and wait until it dries. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes, other times it could take hours. When my hair was long, I used to like doing it overnight. When you are done, you just take each braid out, comb it out with your fingers, throw a little hairspray on, pin it back if you want to get it out of your face but that is the easiest way to get your hair to wave or curl with braided styles. Thank you.
