Lace Dutch-Braided Wrap-around/SHORT Hairstyle

Hello Everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am so excited to show you all how to do one of my favorite hairstyles!

Although this hairstyle is specially for all my short-haired people out there, it works great on long hair as well. (: Let’s get started–

*************************************

Items needed: 1 small hair elastic, 4-5 bobby pins (as needed) ~ time needed: 4-5 minutes Difficulty: medium

*************************************

1.) Start by parting your hair in a side part.

2.) Grab a small section of hair a couple inches behind your hairline on the “light” side of your part.

3.) Begin doing a lace dutch-braid. All this means is that you are going to do a regular dutch-braid except ONLY grab hair from the crown of your head.

4.) Once you braid a few inches back you are going to keep braiding across the back of your head. Remember to only add in hair from the crown of your head. So it should look like this.

5.) As you continue to braid, start adding strands from near the front of your hair, but only add strands a couple inches behind your hairline, so it will be even with the other side. Once you reach about where my braid is, don’t add any more strands and just braid down and secure with your small elastic.

6.) Pancake your braid by gently pulling on the outer edges of your braid. Also, if you have layers like me, you might need to add bobby pins to keep the hairstyle in place. If there is some puffiness or strands sticking up near the crown of your head, add bobby pins as well.
