Lace Braid Picture Guide – A Step By Step Tutorial
Hello Lovely Readers,
What are Decorative Braids?
These are the braided hairstyles that you can utilize to decorate your hair without the need of any separate accessories. You can form a head-band, wrap around a pony or just pull your bangs away from your face into these stylish braids. What I love about Decorative Braids is that they let you leave your hair loose and yet keep the hair away from your face. So let’s learn these decorative braids with these easy-to-do pictorials.
Oh, before we proceed hope you all have practiced the French Braid technique well J.
Lace braid is basically a one-sided French braid because similar to French Braid we will be adding sections but only on one-side of the braid instead of adding sections on both the sides.
1. Just like how you begin with French Braid, start with a braid of 2 cycles. [ Naming the sections as Left (L), Middle (M) and Right (R) ]
2. Pull a section on one side as shown.
3. Combine the pulled section with the R section and braid.
4.Continue the same steps till you reach the ear. Remember to always add the sections diagonally and loosely as shown in the pictures. The pictures 4, 5 and 6 portray how the braid looks while lace-braiding. Also, keep checking in a mirror to adjust the position of the braid as you reach the ear.
5.Once you reach the ear, braid normally till you reach the end and secure with an elastic.
6.You are pretty much done with the above 5 steps. I have created 2 braids as shown in the picture. For the second braid it took me about 2 -3 trails for proper positioning. So a little practice is what you need.
