Hi, everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely week so far.
Today, I've got another hair tutorial.
It's using a lace braid which is really, really pretty.
It kind of twists around your hair,
so it's a hybrid between a up-do and a down-do.
So all you're gonna need for this hair tutorial is
a comb or back-combing brush with a rat tail comb on the end.
You'll need a few bobby pins on hand in case you have layers in your hair.
I've got some long layers in my hair,
and it can sometimes mean that when you're doing braided hairstyles,
you get little tufts sticking up,
so these help to just pin them into place and pin them down.
And you're gonna want to use a small hair elastic.
I'd say preferably a clear one or one that matches your hair color.
And then I'm also gonna be using some hairspray.
I'm using my Bed Head Tigi Masterpiece hairspray,
which gives my hair really good shine and hold.
So to start off with,
I'm gonna create a deep side parting on my hair.
So using my rat tail comb, I'm gonna go from the arch of my eyebrow
and then just pull it back and pull that hair over to one side.
You want to bring the parting to the side.
if you have a side fringe or shorter layers on one side,
you kind of want to go towards that side.
And next, you just want to bring all your hair round to that one side,
so sweeping it round, you could use a hairbrush to do this.
I'm just gonna use my fingers
and just make sure it's all kind of smoothed round nicely.
So to start off the braid,
I'm gonna pick up this top section of hair,
and then I'm gonna start by doing a Dutch braid,
so I'm gonna split this into three.
And to start the Dutch braid, all you want to do
is take this middle section and bring it over the front,
and then take the new middle section and take it over the back.
And then at the back,
I'm just gonna pick up some hair off the head.
And then at the front, I'm gonna pick up some hair off the head.
I'm just gonna carry on doing the Dutch braid
for a few kind of rotations
just until you meet the edge of your face...
like so, and now I'm gonna start doing the lace braid.
So to do the lace braid, it's exactly the same as the Dutch braid,
but you're only gonna be picking up hair using this top back section.
So with the top back section,
I'm just gonna pick up some hair off my head,
but then I'm not gonna pick up any of the front section
that's just gonna go under...
and bring it around and then using the new back section,
I'm gonna pick some hair off the head...
and then I'm just gonna keep going until I reach the back of my head.
Once you've reached the back of your head,
you want to just carry it down for a few rotations
just doing a normal braid...
and then making sure you keep hold of these three sections,
I'm just gonna take all this hair from underneath
and flip it over the braid,
so the braid is now coming under that bit of hair.
And then you want to take the three strands and bring them round.
This can be a bit fiddly, but you just want to make sure
you've got the three sections and you flip them over.
Like so, and you just keep hold of them.
That's the main key to this.
So then I'm just gonna carry it on for another kind of rotation
just to make it a bit longer so I've got a bit more room.
And now I'm gonna carry on doing the lace braid.
So... with three sections...
now I'm gonna pick up a little bit of hair from the top...
and add it to that top section...
and then add a little bit more to the new top section,
and I'm gonna take it round.
And you just want to keep going like this, again,
until you reach the back of your head.
And then again, once I've reached kind of the back,
I'm gonna do a few rotations of the normal braid.
And then flip that hair over again...
bringing the three sections round.
And then picking up some more hair,
I'm just gonna continue it around again, so just adding hair to that top section.
Once you've reached the bottom of your hair,
you just want to take that hair elastic,
and we're just gonna tie it off like you would a normal braid.
So now you've finished braiding,
I'm just gonna go round and kind of pull on the braid,
just thickening it up to create some added volume.
If you have any bits sticking out like me, you can just take a bobby pin
and just pin them into the braid.
And then I'm just gonna take some hairspray
and just give it a quick spritz just to hold it in place.
So thanks for watching, guys.
I hope you've enjoyed this lace braid tutorial.
I think it's such a pretty feminine kind of style.
Um, yeah, it's really pretty and a bit different,
so I hope you try it out and you've enjoyed watching.
And I will see you in the next tutorial. Bye, guys.
