Braided Lady

16 Aug

Here is a quick tutorial of how to add something new to a simple side braid.

Start with your hair out of the way, in a loose ponytail. You will need a ribbon, or thin scarf.  I found this piece of chiffon fabric at Michael’s Craft Store. (2.5 feet, $3.50)

Place the middle of the ribbon about one inch above the hairline. Tie in a loose double knot at the base of your hairline in the back, leading the ends fall.

Set your ponytail free!!!!

Start braiding to the side, making sure that two out of the three sections has part of the ribbon tail.

Tie the end with a small clear elastic.  You can make the scarf show subtly (above) or you can make it show dramatically. Play with different ribbons and fabric, to see what works best for you and your hair.
