Whether you decide to put it on your left or right side, a side braid can make every girl look youthful and chic. To start, make sure you have frizz-free strands. Invest in a Mayraki Silky Smooth Proactive Hair Repairing Treatment to reducetangles and pesky flyaways. When your hair’s fully dry, section your hair into three and get the middle section and cross it under the left section. Secure your braid with an elastic

2. Dutch Braid


You’ve probably seen this fancy braid most of the time when someone is working out or doing chores – but that’s because this one’s easy to do! Just like a side braid, you need to divide the hair into three sections near the hairline. Make sure to detangle with a wooden hair brush for smooth hair. From the top, braid your hair back towards the nape, and adding hair as you go along. Secure your braid with an elastic.

3. Headband Braid

From the left side, take a handful of hair and separate it into three pieces. With as easy as “left under, right under” steps – you’ll be done in no time. Continue braiding around the hairline and pin it in place.

Another simple braid to try out at home is the rope twist braid, and you can do this in just 2-3 minutes. Just like the mentioned braid styles above, all you need is a brush and elastic. Detangle well and make sure they’re no frizz so you can do this cute rope twist braid. First, create 2 sections of hair together, and tie it into a high ponytail. Twist the 2 sections individually in a clockwise direction until the very end. Make sure to intertwine these twisted sections with each other in an anticlockwise direction, and secure the ends with a hair elastic.

Making sure your hair is detangled well, and that they’re moisturized enough so they look good when you take them off. Others may not know this but braids are a perfect way to style the hair without using any heat at all. How cool is that? Ready for some amazing braid hairstyles? Because we are!
