Mermaid braid It is based on the weaving of an ordinary French braid, while the strands are taken very thin and do not drag on, but remain slightly free.

We will need:

♥ comb; ♥ hair spray; ♥ gum.

Hairstyle creation time: 5-10 minutes.

Step 1.

Gently comb the hair along the entire length, they should be smooth and not matted. Parting is in the middle.

Step 2.

Separate a small strand from the temporal part on one side and sprinkle it with a little hairspray. It is necessary to do so that our hair does not fall apart. Do the same on the other side, but take a little more strand, since we will divide it into two parts to start weaving a 3-strand braid.

Step 3.

Spin the strands once to begin. Now we take a new independent strand on the one side of the temporal part and weave it into our braid, on the other hand we also do it. Now we add new strands each time, until the French braid is the right length. Do not tighten the strands; hair should lie loose.

Step 4.

From the remaining three strands we braid the usual braid and fasten it with an elastic band. In order for the hairstyle to retain its appearance for a long time, sprinkle it with hair spray.
