Hi, my beautiful friends. How are you doing? It's Mimi here today, and today I'm going to show you how to create this beautiful romantic and summer perfect braid, so let's begin.
All right, for this tutorial we're getting need a few simple tools. One of them is going to be a teasing comb, so got to make sure you have one. We're going to need a regular hairbrush, a few Bobby pins, a hair elastic, just a teeny tiny one that you can't see in your hair, and one more thing you're going to need for this hairstyle is some wild flowers. I think wild daisies will look absolutely beautiful in the hair, so you can just find them on the street, on the sidewalk, or somebody's backyard, just make sure you don't get caught. Yes, so we're going to add this as well to this hairstyle.
First things first, I'm going to brush my hair to make sure there are no tangles in my hair. I'm wearing my Luxy hair extensions and I'm wearing the Ombre Chestnut set. I'm wearing this to add the length and the thickness for the spray, because naturally, my hair is not that thick or long. So, I'm just going to quickly brush through my,
Once I brush through the hair, I'm going to take my teasing comb, and I'm going to go to the crown, so this section of my head, and I'm going to tease the hair at the crown of my head. And the weird thing about this top is when I'm going to pick up my hands and lift my hands, you'll see that the top, I don't know. It does that, whatever.
So let's go to this hair and just brush it backwards, and then I'm just going to pick up random sections of the crown. Take the brush, put it in the hair, and just go up and down, and I'm not even using hairspray because I just want just the tiny bit of volume here, just a little something to make it more dramatic.
I'm going to grab another section from the other side, also the crown and do the same thing. I'm just moving the brush up and down, and same thing on the left side, and then a little more. So when I'm happy with my tease, I'm going to go back with this brush, and I'm going to just carefully smooth out the T's. So I'm just carefully brushing over what I just teased. And now I'm going to turn it around and show you what I'll be doing in the back.
The first thing I'm going to do is grab a big section from the left, so nice thick section from my left side, and then I'm going to start twisting it to the middle of my head. So I'm just going to grab this section and twist it until I get to the middle. And then when I get to the middle, I'm just going to grab a Bob with him or two and I'm going to pin it in place.
I'm going to go ahead and add just one more to make sure the twist is safe, and then I'm going to go to my right section and do the exact same thing. So I'm going to grab a nice thick section of hair from the right and start twisting it to the left, and as I get to the of my head, where the left twist myths, the right twist, I'm going to just find the middle ground, and I'm going to pin that section in place.
Now that I'm done twisting, I'm going to grab the rest of the hair, and I'm just going to start doing a regular braid. Let's split all of this hair in three sections and start braiding them as a regular braid.
It gets a bit tricky as you go down. I find that if you lift the braid a little bit, it kind of helps. So, as you lift the braid, you can get to the bottom of the hair.
As I reached the bottom of the braid, I'm going to grab my hair elastic, bring, the hair on the side so I can grab the ends, and just secure the ends with the hair elastic.
Now, onto the styling of the spray, I'm going to mess it up. I'm going to plug some sections. I'm going to make it look effortless and big, so I'm just going to start with a top, I guess, and I'm just going to grab a section and just pull it. I would also suggest using a mirror if you can, just to see how much you're pulling or bring the hair on the side and pull it on the side, and then you can check it in the mirror as well.
And then I'm going to go to the twist, and I'm going to do the same thing. I'm going to fan it out a little bit here. You just have to be careful to make sure the bobby pin doesn't slide out as you do that. Even if it does, you just go back in and pin it. Going to do the same thing on the right side, pulling on the twist to make sure it unravels and just looks a little more natural and effortless.
Now I'm going to go back into the hair at the crown of my head, and I'm going to go back with this comb, and I'm going to go with the section that's sort of like a fork, and I'm just going to start lifting the hair at the roots just for extra volume.
And the last step for the summer break is I'm going to add these wild flowers. So, I'm going to cut the stems that they're not too long, otherwise they're going to stick out of you hair, and then I'm just going to start sticking them onto the hair.
I'm first going to go here where the twists are and just add some of them here. And again, this is a bit difficult when you don't see what you're doing, but I kind of have an idea where I want to put them. I'm going to add a few there, a few here in the middle, and then we're going to add a couple here. And again, when you're inserting the flowers, make sure you're inserting it in your hair, otherwise they will fall out of your hair.
And then you can bring the braid to the front and continue adding flowers all the way to the bottom of your braid, and you're done.
I'm absolutely in love with this braid. I saw a picture of this on Pinterest and I just knew I had to recreate this. I think this braid is absolutely perfect for a music festival, for a date out for a wedding. It's just, whatever you have to do in the summer, this is your hairstyle to do it with. I think it's beautiful and romantic and it's just absolutely summer perfect.
