Double Braid Hair Tutorial

Wednesday

After sporting this hair style in a previous post, I received so many kind comments and emails asking how to create this hairstyle. It really took me back, because I was honestly just trying to avoid the terrible wind at all costs that day. ha! But, by your request, here are all of the steps to create a double braid hairstyle..

 
You'll need: a small rubber band hair tie, a handful of bobby pins. 

Begin with your hair down. Take a section of your hair from the thicker side of your part, and braid it all the way down. It will lie flat on your head best if you angle it back as you're braiding it. Next, using a technique Elsie and Sarah taught me here, slightly tug all along the braid, making it appear thicker. Once the braid is complete, pin it on the back/far side of your head underneath the top layer of your hair, covering the bobby pins. Next, braid the rest of your hair into a side braid. Continue with the same process as the first braid, slightly tugging along the whole thing. If it's really windy that day, add a spritz of hairspray to keep it place. 

I'm off to experiment with natural dyeing. If I have any luck, I'll be sure to share it with you. Have a lovely Wednesday.
