Putting a braid in your hair is tricky to start with but with a little practice it can become second nature. If you get bored of the same old braid every time, why not try something a little different.

This is called the “Easy Sliding Braid” and it only takes 5 seconds to do. After braiding the hair, don’t tie it up just yet. Hold onto the middle section of hair and slide the other 2 sections back on themselves. As they slide up the middle section, you will see a beautiful pattern starting to develop. Once the Sliding Braid has been created, pin it to your head and let the middle section blend into the rest of your hair. Success.
