Hello, my beautiful friends. It's Mimi here today and today I'm going to share with you how to create this really cool looking loop feather braid, that's what this one is called. And I saw an inspiration picture of this on Pinterest, and as soon as I saw it, I was like, it looks complicated, but I have to figure out how to do it. So I have, and I've created it. In fact, it's very simple, even though it might look a little complicated. So I'm super excited to show you something new and teach you guys how to create this braid. Are you guys ready?
Let's get started. All right, I don't know if you can tell, but my hair is sort of wet, so I sprayed some water in my hair, but I didn't spray any on my bangs intentionally, I'm going to separate them. So, I'm just going to take a bobby pin and pin them in the back like this, and then I'm going to brush the rest of the hair.
So for this braid to work, I definitely recommend spraying some water in the hair, but also I'm going to be working with hair wax because hair wax will help the hair stay in place as I'm going to be braiding it. So, quickly going to give my hair a brush and I'm wearing my ombre-chestnut Luxy Hair extensions in 160 grams [inaudible 00:01:25]. All right, so once the hair is brushed, I'm going to take a clear little hair elastic and put it right at the base here on the left. So I'm just going to be braiding on the side obviously so that you guys can see what I'm doing. But you can do this braid in the back of your head, you can just do a small section in the back or all of the hair in the back as well. So, just going to put this into a hair elastic, like that.
All right, so next I'm going to do is start braiding. Once I have my hair in a side ponytail, I'm going to brush through it, and then I'm going to separate that section of hair into three equal strands and begin braiding my hair in a regular three-strand braid.
Now I'm going to take this section from the left and release a small chunk of hair from that section, and then I'm going to take a little bit of hair wax and put some hair wax onto that section. Then I will continue braiding the hair, so I'm going to braid that section over the middle section, then take my other section from the other side and release a little bit of hair from there as well, and then add a little bit of hair wax on top. So I'm going to be doing this as I go down my braid. So again, I'm braiding it in. So bringing that section over the middle section, which is essentially doing a regular three-strand braid. Then once I get back on my left side, I do the same thing, I release a small chunk of hair from that main section on the left.
Now here's the tricky part, I'm going to take the first section, so the previous small section that I released previously, add it to the left section and then braid them together over the middle section. Now I'm going to do the same thing here on my right. I'm going to take a small section out, drop it, put some hair wax over it, before I forget it, and then take the previous small section that I released before, braid it into my right section, add it to the right section and braid it over the middle section.
And at this point I can actually go and feather out my loops. As you can see, this will be the method and now I'm going back to my left section, releasing a little small chunk of hair and then adding the previous section into the left section, braiding it over the middle section, and then doing the exact same thing on the right section. So releasing a small chunk of hair, adding some hair wax, and then braiding in my previous section into that three strand braid. And I'm going to go ahead and repeat the exact same steps all the way down my brain.
Now, as I get to the bottom of my hair, I have my braid ready and I'm just going to now go ahead and sort of feather out all of these loops just to show you the effect that I got with this braiding technique. Then I'm going to grab a hair elastic, a clear hair elastic, and then just secure this braid at the ends and then I'm going to go ahead and fix it up a little more and you can do this at any point.
Next I'm going to grab a pair of scissors and carefully, carefully is the keyword, I'm going to cut through that little hair elastic that I had at the base of my ponytail when I started braiding. All right, perfect. So again, I'm going to go back into my braids, see if I need to fix anything. Also, I'm going to release my side bangs and just re-pin them a little more loosely around my face, and then we are finished.
All right, now you guys know how to recreate this beautiful feathered loop braid, make sure to try it out a few times. I know at first you do it, It might seem a little complicated, so you might need a bit of practice, but just a few times and you'll master it, I promise. And when you master it, make sure to post a picture of your recreation on Instagram with #Luxyhair. I love seeing you guys recreate the hairstyles, so make sure to do that. Also, if you've enjoyed this video, make sure to give this video a big thumbs up, it will totally make my day. Thank you guys so much for watching, big kisses and I'll see you in the next video, bye.
