A simple braiding tutorial to achieve extraordinary results
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
While your wedding day is most certainly about your own hair and wedding gown, a lot of what makes it a day to remember is the very gals you’ve chosen to stand by your side. They too deserve to look and feel beautiful on your special day, so we’ve narrowed down a few braided hairstyles you should consider for your bridesmaids.
This twisted look is both natural and elegant, and a great way to pull hair away from the face. Typically, this look is secured tightly, allowing for little movement. We, however, prefer a more relaxed feel where the braids sit loosely on your head, allowing for a few strands to hang free. A good finishing spray will do wonders to maintain this ‘messy’ look without leaving it feeling stiff. Try Mizani’s Lightweight Texture Finishing Spray for a natural-looking hold.
A great option for women with longer braids, this style ensures that they won’t get in your way. It’s as simple and pulling your braids up until you reached your desired height then securing with either an elastic band or a glitzy headpiece. The last thing you want is for your braids to irritate your scalp, so we suggest Dark and Lovely’s Au Naturale Scalp Soother that’ll relieve the tightness and itching caused from braiding.
Here you’ll mix plaits of different sizes into a braided hairstyle for a look that exudes elegance and beauty. The results are different patterns that turn a simple braided ‘do into something spectacular. Add gold or silver hair accessories to finish off the look. Before you braid up your mane, use Redken’s Fragrances All Soft Shampoo that softens dry, brittle or coarse hair. Ideal for when you remove your braids, too!
In this case, the bigger, the better! Chunky braids are a gorgeous way to let your locks hang free without them getting in the way. They’re also a timeless style because of their simplicity and their ability to pair perfectly with any outfit, in this case, a bridesmaid’s dress. Again, before embracing this ‘do – give your hair some TLC with Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral, a deep-penetration nutrition treatment mask for dried-out hair.
So, with your girls looking on point, all that’s left for you to do is to embrace every moment of your special day!
