Double French braids are a cute and practical hairstyle.Double French braids are the style for you, whether you want an elegant style, need to keep your hair back during a workout, or just want to mix things up.The French braid style works best on hair that is at least shoulder length.There are two ways to try out this hairstyle.You can combine the braids at the bottom to make a big braid, or you can create two separate braids.
Step 1: Place your hair in the center of your head.
A smooth middle part can be created using a comb.The tail of the comb can be used if it has teeth.Make sure that your part is straight.When it is smooth, comb each side.The long end of a rat tail comb can be used to make a clean part.If it is slightly damp, you can still braid dry hair.
Step 2: There is a hair tie on one side of the part.
Wrap a ponytail holder around the hair.If you accidentally pull hair from that side while you work on the other braid, this will keep the hair separated into a part.If you want, you can use a hair clip.
Step 3: A piece of hair should be separated into 3 sections.
Start your braid close to your head.You don't have to have all of your hair in your hand when you start.Pull small sections from your head.As you braid, pull in the remaining hair.To make the braid look uniform, try to keep the 3 sections the same size.You may need to add more hair to your 3 sections if you have thicker hair.It may take some practice to braid your own hair.Your arms may become tired as you braid.If this happens, you can hold your hair in place with one hand and allow the other arm to rest.If you want to rest the other arm, switch hands.Your style will be worth it if you keep going.
Step 4: You can create a left, middle, and right section.
You will be able to keep track of which section of hair you should be weaving.The sections will change as you braid.
Step 5: It is possible to weave.
The middle section should be adjusted to the left.Pull your hair tight to prevent flyaways.
Step 6: Continue the braid by weaving the right section over the middle one.
The first section should be adjusted to make it the new right section.Pull your hair tightly.
Step 7: Cross it over the middle section if you add more hair to the left section.
Pull your hair tightly.How thick your hair is will affect the amount of hair you add.If you have thick hair, you'll want to pull in bigger chunks of hair so that you incorporate all of the hair into the braid before you reach the nape of your neck.You will need to pull in less if you have thin hair.The braid will be neat if you make sure that the amounts for each section are equal.Pull your hair tightly throughout the braiding process.
Step 8: If you want to go over the middle section, add more hair to the right section.
You will use this pattern to finish your braid.As you go, gather hair on the left side and the right side.It is hard work.While you braid, you may need to rest your arms.Make sure you don't let go of the braid.
Step 9: Continue the process until you reach the bottom of your hair.
You should end up with 3 sections like you would in a regular braid.As you would a basic braid, continue weaving your hair.
Step 10: Attach the braid with an elastic band.
Wrap your tie around your hair at the bottom of the braid, about 2.5 to 5.1 cm from the ends.During your braid, you can tie off your hair at any time.If you have long hair, you may want to tie off your braid just below the nape of your neck.It's optional if you have curly, textured hair that isn't prone to unraveling.Allow your arms to rest for a few minutes before starting your second braid.
Step 11: It's a good idea to braid the other side of your hair.
You can do the same thing on the other side of your head.You should have 2 French braids when you're done.You can tuck the ends of the braid under the other braid to create a crown.The braids need to be secured with a few pins.
Step 12: If you want to start 2 separate braids, clip or tie them just below your nape.
If you were to create 2 separate braids, you would start the double braids the same way.You should stop the braids below the nape of your neck so that you can combine them there.While you braid the other side, secure the first side with a hair tie or clip.To hold the braid, choose a tight clip or tie.The braid will start to loosen if the clip is loose.The base of your head is your neck's nape.
Step 13: Under the right section of your braid, place your index finger.
The furthest section to the side of your head will be this one.You should weave around the area where you want to combine the 2 braids.
Step 14: Under the right section of the braid, loop the same finger.
You should put your braids on your finger.On the left braid, make your loop near the same area as you did on the right braid.The rest of the braid will be your new right section.
Step 15: Under the left sections of the braid, loop your thumb.
Start on the left side of the braid.As you looped the right side, make your loop in the same area.This will be the new left section for the rest of the braid.
Step 16: Hold your new sections in place by removing your hair ties or clips.
Your 2 right sections will become 1 and your 2 left sections are going to become 1.To keep your braid from coming loose, be sure to hold your hair tightly.Pull out any weaves below the part where you are joining the 2 braids.To create your new sections, you could join the left and middle sections of your left braid, the right and left sections from your right braid and the middle and right sections.The method might not look as smooth where the braids join, but some people find it easier.
Step 17: If you want to finish your braid, weave your 3 remaining strands.
Start by crossing the right side over the middle section and then repeat with the left side.Continue weaving until you reach the bottom of your hair, and then secure your braid with a tie.
