Make a braid yourself – Instructions:


  1. Give your hair strands a little structure.

    To do this, apply a little Osis Dust It to the roots of your hair all over your head and then massage your head with your fingers to distribute the product evenly.

  2. A Make braids yourself – Part your hair and start the braid.

    To do this, part the hair in such a way that a disordered, deep side part is created. From the side of the head that has less hair now, take the part of the hair that starts in the front and runs along the hairline and behind the ear. Divide this part into three equal-sized strands just behind the ear and start braiding. The technique is like a normal braid, except that you add a small new strand of loose hair before each crossing of the strands.

  3. Continue braiding along your neck to the other side.

    As you braid your hair, angle the braid so that it runs down the hairline at the bottom of the nape and towards the side where there was more hair.

  4. A Make braids yourself – Wrap a thin strand around the end of the braid.

    When you have reached the end of the braid, tie it with a hair elastic. Then, take a thin strand the size of your little finger and wrap it around the hair elastic to hide it.

  5. Attach the wrapped part.

    Secure the strand that you have wrapped around the hair elastic with a bobby pin, which you pin up so that it disappears in the braid and is no longer visible.

  6. A Make braids yourself – Finish the hairstyle with some texture.

    Spray the braid and rest of the hair with a texturizing spray, like the Oribe Dry Texturing Hair Spray, for a tousled look. Then sprinkle a bit of Grip Powder on your hands and rub the palms of your hands up and down the braid to give the braid extra texture.
