I SO LOVE THIS LOOK ~ NOT ONLY FOR THE GORGEOUS-FACTOR,
but the practical-factor of keeping your hair out of your face...
Here's the how-to-do:
* Before jumping into the braiding process, prepare your strands: If you're prone to frizziness, use a little hair serum or mousse ~ this will also make the job when easier when start shaping the bangs.
* Next is the parting: If you've decided where to begin the braiding, make sure you separate your strands the way you want to wear them. You can go for either the left or right, there's no rule for this. This is the area where the starting point of the braiding is.
* Now, it is time to separate your bangs: Grab the hair at 1.5 - 2 inches from your forehead. Then to make sure the line is even, brush this hair forward. These strands will create the braided section. Put the rest of your into a ponytail until you finish.
* When you're ready, grab the bangs and further divide it into 3 separate and even strands as if you would French braid the hair in the back. Then, go on braiding the 2 parts on the sides, however, the one in the middle should constantly grab and incorporate the rest of the bangs, this way securing the braided section to the head.
* Now leave the middle part to follow its way and rather crisscross the tresses on the side further grabbing the additional strands. Do the traditional French braiding across your head until you reach the ears.
* Dah-nah ~ you can either include the braid into the ponytail, if you opted for an updo, or you can simply fix it with a bobby pin at the back of your ears. This all depends on the length of your hair and the hairstyle you're after!
