asymmetrical colorful braid tutorial

ask, and you shall receive my friends! as promised, here is the video tutorial of the hair-do i wore in this post! i'm calling it the Asymmetrical Colorful Braid...but call it whatever you want! i hope the tutorial is easy to follow and as always, please comment if you have any questions!

What You'll Need:

  • clip-in hair extension in your hair color - one that is longer than your hair length and preferable around 3" wide. note: if you have really long hair, you can skip this extension and just use the colored ones! i got my extensions from The Hair Shop here in LA - but you can get them at any wig store, some beauty supply stores, or online. real human hair extensions are always better but you can use synthetic ones too!
  • 3 colored clip-in hair extensions, in the colors of your choosing.
  • a few bobby pins
  • clear plastic hair band
  • curling iron - i got mine from Folica
  • hair brush or comb (optional, to tease roots)
  • hair spray (optional, to seal your 'do')
  • clip (to separate your hair when placing your extension)
Do It:
  1. curl your hair in loose waves away from your face. part your hair in the middle or on the side.
  2. part your hair on this side (a little above your ear, but away from your hairline) and clip-in your non-colored hair extension.
  3. clip-in your 3 colored hair extensions above your other extension.
  4. braid them all together, you can grab pieces of your own hair to include in the braid too!
  5. make the braid messy by 'drawstring-ing' it. grab one of the three sections of your braid and push the other two up. mess it more with your fingers.
  6. seal your braid with your elastic.
  7. pin back your hair on the braid side to expose the braid more but keep the extension tops covered. bobby pin in place.
  8. braid one or two of the face-framing pieces in a tiny braid and secure back into the same area where you pinned your hair in step 7.
  9. spray with hairspray to seal the deal!

i love this look for day or night. funky, fun and unique!
