Hello everyone. I'm Jaime from Studio 24 at Salon Republic, and today we're going to show you how to do a French braids variations. What I'm going to do, I'm going to do one French braids on this side and I'm going to do one French braids on another side. Then, I'm going to close the French braids in the back to have a hairstyle going on. But, you can choose to just do one side or both side; it's really up to you. But, I'm going to show you how I'm going to section the hair and start the French braids. First of all, I'm going to take in my comb and just comb through the hair, make sure it's smooth. On this side, I'm going to create the French braids this wide. So, I'm going to separate the hair. Those are not the hair we're going to braids, so, I'm going to separate them and I'm going to use a few clip just to clip in to the sides. And really, how big you want the section or how small, it's really up to you, depends however you want the French braids to look like. So, here we are, we section the hair out and I'm clipping the extra hair to the sides, so it doesn't, it makes you easier to braid the hair. I'm going to take one section at the front of the hairline and comb through it and hold it like straight out. Put down the comb, I'm going to use two of my finger to separate this hair piece into three even sections and then, I'm going to go across the left side to the middle one and the right side to the other side. Then, you're going to start grabbing hair while you're braiding the hair. Since it's on the side, it might, it might take some practice to do it yourself. But, you know, practice makes perfect; so, you just have to keep trying and keep watching the video. The point is, you know, just have fun with it because, you know. Yes, so, I'm going to continue this braids all the way down to the back of the head. I mean, of course, you can stop anywhere you like, just depends how you want the style to be. So here, it's one side of the French braid that we did. Basically, we section out this part; then, you can go create it after you did this part. You can either put the hair up or you can braid the other side to create a different style. But, this is how you will do the French braid on the side of the head. So now, we're going to do exact the same thing on the other side of the head so you can get a better close look at it. So now, I'm going to put the hair up in a ponytail, but, to a way that you can still see the French braid because I think sometimes when you put the hair as in a ponytail, it's kind of boring; so, in this way you actually add style to it. So, first of all, I'm taking my pedal brush to comb the hair on top of the hair to the back like how I was going to do a ponytail. But, I, I want to make sure people can see that I, I did the French braids on the side. So, I'm going to make sure they are very clean; separate it from the hair that's braided. So, I'm going to hold the, the hair that's not braided to where you want the ponytail is and just pull the rest of the hair from the French braids, connect it into this ponytail. Then, of course, I'm going to take a rubber band to secure the pony, ponytail. So, here we go, you can definitely see the variation of the French braid. I connect them to the back with a ponytail. You can see on this side and this side. Now, she's ready to go at the gym.
