Baby braids: how to achieve this ultra trendy hairstyle?
To make baby braids, nothing could be simpler! Start with a straight parting in the middle of the head. Then, just take the two locks on the front of the face, on each side of the parting. You will need to use a section about 5 to 7 cm wide. That’s it ! Now just braid in the standard way until the end of the wick. To fix the braids, it is possible to use a small thin and discreet elastic. Another alternative, just backcomb the bottom of the hair, which avoids using rubber bands. Or, use a fixing spray in addition.
Baby braids have the advantage of being able to be worn every day! Indeed, in addition to being done in just 10 minutes, this hairstyle requires very little maintenance. In the summer they are particularly interesting. They free up the face, while bringing a touch of deceptively casual chic.
