Hair braids are sported as one of the most traditional and fashionable trend in hairstyles. There is specific hair braiding styles associated with a specific country or region. You can find special English, French and Dutch hair braiding styles. It is also a common practice to incorporate braiding with a number of formal and casual hairstyles. Many women sport braid with formal hairstyle during weddings and proms. At the same time, the braids are also incorporated along with a number of casual hairstyles applied to longer hair.
When you are creating the braids on you own, you need to clean the hair by applying a gentle mousse, pomade or styling gel and blow-dry and damp the hair to make it as much smoother as possible. If you have braided the hair earlier and have not washed on the day of braiding, you need not do the washing again as it will already contain the hair product used earlier.
Now you can start creating the hair braids by dividing the hair evenly into three sections. Place the left section between the thumb and left index finger and the right section between your thumb and right index finger. Leave the middle section free to hang. These will give shape to the braids. Pull the middle section behind the left section and continue with the process till you make the braid with the desired length.
