Floating Lace Braid Tutorial and Before and After Hair with Suave

With the summer break, I’ve taken some time to gear up for the new school year by practicing new hairstyles on Miss Bea. She spends a lot of time in the pool, so I take care to help Bea with the hair washing, drying, and styling, so it doesn’t get damaged and/or dried out. Before I get to my Floating Lace Braid tutorial, you’ve got to learn about the awesome Unilever deal going on at Kroger stores right now.

I personally love the Suave Sea Mineral Infusion shampoo and conditioner because it makes our hair so soft, and smells yummy.

Step 1 – Comb hair all over to one side of the head in the direction you want the braid to go.

Step 2 – Grab a small section of hair just above the ear of which ever side you want to begin braid, and opposite of the side you want to finish on.

Step 3 – Divide that hair into 3 even sections and place between left hand fingers, palm side up.

Step 4 – Now begin braiding by twining each section once.

Step 5 –  With your right hand, feed a small section of hair from forehead hairline into the outer section of braid, and twine into the middle position.

Step 7 – Continue alternating feeding in sectons of hair from the forehead, and behind the ear until you are about to the center of the head. This process is a typical french braid.

Step 8. Now stop feeding in hair from behind the ear or what we’ll call the lower side, and your going to switch to a “lace braid” by only feeding in hair from the forehead or “upper side.” Feed in a section of hair into the upper edge and place into the middle position, braid the two remaining section, and repeat feeding in hair from the forehead until you’ve reached the opposite ear from where you started.

Step 9. Once you’ve reached the opposite side of the head, just above the ear, stop feeding in new hair and finish off with a classic braid until you’ve reached the ends.

Step 10. Finish off ends with a small elastic band, and pin at the back of the head (if desired) with a bobby pin.
