Hi my name is Lauren and I am here to discuss step-by-step braided hairstyles. As we all know there is numerous styles that you can actually get with braids and there is numerous things that we can achieve with them. There are also numerous types of braids. In order to start you off with the basics I figured that the English braid which is your typical three strand braid would be the easiest to start. It will provide you with a foundation for almost all hair styles, braided hair styles. You are going to gather your hair back towards the nape of your neck almost as if you were putting your hair in a low ponytail. You want to make sure that it is nice and smooth in the front area and then you are going to actually put your two fingers down through that and split your hair into three sections. After you split your hair into the three sections you are then going to criss cross over them. You are going to go over the top of it so you put your thumb in there in order to give a little resistance and you are going to go back and forth making each strand come to center. You are going to continue all the way down to the end and then you can tie it off however you would like. You can use a rubber band if you'd like, a small rubber band will usually do best because it winds up holding a little bit better. Now there are also braids where you can do five strands, nine strands. They are a little bit more intricate but even if you just want to do a simple style with your regular three braided strand you can actually bring this up and you can tuck this and you can pin which will give you a nice style almost like a bun on the back. You can also bring it up and pull it through, especially with longer hair this works a little bit better. So that way you get almost like a twist or a bun with the actual braid coming off of it and that is just a little starting foundation for step by step braided hairstyles.
