Today I’m going to show you how to do an infinity braid! As you can see, this braid works as a really cute accent for a half-up. (Thanks again to my sister for modelling this style 😉 )
Items needed: 2 small rubber hair ties
Time: 5 minutes
1.) Start by gathering the top layer of your hair back and tying it up at the back of your head with a small rubber elastic. To hide the hair tie wrap a small section around the hair tie and then pin the strands under the hair tie. Alternatively, you could use the topsy-tail trick for added security. (Refer to this post for a quick tutorial.)
2.) Next, divide the hair into two even sections.. (Optional: for a smoother and more sleek braid, you may want to add some water or styling product to the strands you want to braid to make it easier to braid.)
3.) Now pick up a sliver of hair from the right hand section and wrap over that section, and then under the left section.. (a bit like a basket weave)
4.) Still holding your original sliver or hair, now wrap back the opposite way: back over the left section and under the right, making sure to hold the sections tightly..
5.) Continue wrapping the single section back over and under, under and over.. once you have done this step a few times and the strand is beginning to thin, gather a small section of hair from beside the sliver and add to it and continue wrapping back and forth until you reach your desired length…
6.) Once you have reached your desired length, tie off the ends of the infinity braid with another rubber elastic..
7.) Optional: wrap the hair around the elastic to cover it, then tweak and adjust any part of the hairstyle, add some hairspray and you’re done!
And you’re done!
