Braid 15-Skinny Strand Braid


Braid 15-Skinny Strand Braid is the easiest braid on the block blog.

It’s actually a regular ole braid. I know, crazy!

Make one strand skinnier than the others and wha-la! skinny strand braid.

I learned this from my friend Amanda and was astounded when I first saw it. Then she relinquished the secret to me. Amazing I tell you! Even the most basic braider could master this hairstyle.

Here’s the steps to get these awesome ‘do:

Step 1 / Brush all your hair over the left shoulder and separate it into three strands making one super skinny.

Step 2 / Cross the left strand over the middle and then the left over the middle.

Step 3 / Continue braiding the three strands together down to the bottom.

Step 4 / Tie off the ends with a clear elastic band.

And you’re done! That’s it. Yep, I’m serious. It’s a regular braid except now it’s fancy.
