Hairstyles: Lace Braid!

Hey again! So this is a braid I learned how to do a while ago and not a lot of people know about it, but it's pretty awesome! A lace braid is basically half of a french braid, but a little more goes into it.

How To Make a Lace Braid:

Just pinning it back: All you'll really need is a couple of bobby pins for this first version.

This is my friend Hannah's hair.

 First, gather three medium-sized sections from the front of your face. Start off like a regular braid - cross the left strand over so it's in the middle, then cross the right over so it's in the middle. Now, here's where it gets started. Grab a bit of hair about the size of the picture below. Add that to the strand closest to your part (Both Hannah and Jenn's part are on the right, so you I added the hair to the right strand).

Continue on with the braid - do not grab any hair from the other side of the braid. When you get to the part when you need to cross the right strand over the left again, add more and repeat the steps above. When you get to the back of your head, secure it in with as many bobby pins as needed. That's the end of the braid if you just want to stop there. Here's the finished look:

And this is Jenn. I switched models because I stopped and pinned
Jenn's hair, but continued on with Hannah's since it's longer.
 If you wish to continue on and have it look the the picture below, follow the steps above. When you get to the back of your head, don't pin it. Instead, all you need to do is carry on with a regular braid, not grabbing any hair on the way down.

Just tie off the end with an elastic band.
Hope you like this
