Snake braid

Finished braid

This is honestly one of the simplest braids to do, ever.  It gives a nice little touch to any looks, I love to do a few small braids like this and include them in a large french braid!!

Step 1: Pull a small section of hair to do the braid.

Step 2: Braid your hair, just a simple 3 strand like you’re making a friendship bracelet braid.

Step 3: At the bottom of the braid you’ll have the ends of the three strands you used to form the braid.  You’ll want to hold down the middle strand (grab on to the red strand)


Step 4: Holding onto the middle (red) strand of the braid, slide the other sides up the braid.  I filmed a short (and silently creepy) clip so you can see what I mean!

Step 5: Adjust the strands to straighten them out and achieve whatever look you like the best!
