Do you know what the chicest hairstyle is for short hair?
Braids, of course!
Braids are the perfect way to style short hair as they add volume and texture to your locks. If you have highlights, weaving your hair in a braid can accentuate those beautiful colors. The best thing about them is that you can find a braided hairstyle for every hair type and length! They look especially great on short hair.
Without further ado, let’s check out the chicest braided styles that you can sport with short hair.
First, pick the style of black braids you want. There is a wide variety that you can choose from, ranging from Ghana braids to feed-ins and crochet braids.
Decide whether you want to use virgin hair or synthetic hair. Virgin hair is natural human hair while synthetic hair is made of fine plastic fibers.
Apply cream to all your hair, paying extra attention to your scalp.
Divide your hair into small sections and clip them up, leaving one section loose.
Divide the loose section into three sub-sections and braid two or three stitches.
Pick up a section of extensions and fold it in half at the center. Make sure it is just as long as your hair. Use a pair of scissors to cut the excess hair. Now, divide the extension into three sections and place the center section behind the center section of your hair. Merge the side sections of the extensions with the side sections of your natural hair.
Continue weaving the braid till the end.
Repeat the same procedure with all the other sections of your hair.
Once you’ve finished braiding your locks, dip the ends into some hot water in a bowl. This will seal the ends and prevent the braids from unraveling.
Brush your hair back so that it falls behind your shoulders.
Gather some hair from the crown and divide it into two sections: 1 and 2. Take some hair from the outer side of section 1, cross it over and merge it with the inner side of section 2. Then, pick up some hair from the outer side of section 2, cross it over and merge it with the inner side of section 1.
Before you do the next stitch, take hair from the inner side of section 1 and add some hair from outside the braid to it. Now, cross it over and join it to section 2. Repeat this step on the other side as well.
Keep weaving the braid this way to do a French fishtail braid.
Secure the end of the braid with an elastic band and tuck it under the braid to cover it up. Use bobby pins to secure the ends in place.
Separate the hair in the mohawk section and clip off the rest of your locks.
Divide the mohawk section into two.
Weave both the sections into individual fishtail braids.
To do so, divide the section into two sections: 1 and 2. Take hair from the outer side of section 1, pass it over and merge it with the inner side of section 2. Then, take hair from the outer side of section 2, pass it over and merge it with the inner side of section 1.
Continue to weave the braids until the ends before securing them with elastic bands.
Pancake the braids to make them look bigger. Tie them together at the back with a fancy clip.
