Hair How-to: the Peek-a-boo Braid ...

COMMENT

Braids have always been such a hot trend and now the peek-a-boo braid has started making its rounds.

It's awesome because you can never have too much braid, right?

Even though it may look a bit complicated, it's really not as hard as you think it is.

Here's how to get it done:

What you'll need:

Comb

Clear hair elastic

Hair clips

Hairspray

First, use the comb to create a side part.

Divide your hair into three sections - you know the drill, right?

Separate the three sections.

There should be two sections (the sides ones) where the hair falls in front of your ears, over your shoulders.

Keep those sections separated from the section you're about to braid which is the center one.

Create an inverted French braid in the center section.2

That means you're crossing each piece underneath the other rather than over it.

This braid should be from the crown of your head to the nape of your neck!

Now, take some small sections from the back part of the side sections that's hanging down along your face.

Cross them over the center braid.

This is the beginning of your loose fishtail braid.2

To keep the first pieces tight and in place until you add the next two pieces to the fishtail, use a hair clip.

Continue adding hair to your fishtail braid.

When you're finished, secure it with a clear elastic!

Ta-da!

Finish off the look with hairspray.

It might sound a bit complicated but just read the steps carefully and take your time with it.

You'll perfect it sooner than you think!
