23rd: Side Swept Reverse Braid Tutorial

Christmas Calendar, Day 23

For You: Side Swept Reverse Braid Tutorial

(M is finally here! And she's wearing Lumene Natural Code lipstick, nr 15 "Vintage Red")

Keep your hair in check when doing Christmassy stuff!

Start out with gorgeous hair:

Take 1/4 - 1/5 of your hair from one side, and divide it into three parts (one is from the top of the head, one from the bottom and then the middle section:

Now, this is where this gets tricky: Start brading, by taking the top part and braid it in the middle of the two other braids, but from UNDER instead of OVER.

 Then, take the bottom part and fold it in between the two others like in a normal braid, but still from UNDER, not over.

Continue like this, but every time you take which ever part is on top, you add a part of new hair to it (and keep braiding everything from under, not over).

The new part of hair you add is a sort of slice of hair, all the way from the top of the head to the bottom.

Braid as long as you like, I like to let the braid loosely go more and more down. That is possible since you're only brading slices of new hair from the top side of the braid. Then secure with a clear hairband.

Looks good, but...

... we wanna tease it a bit. Really get in there!

Better :)

If your hair gets in the way, you can discreetly pin it a bit for example behind your ear.
