The Mermaid Braid

We all know and love the braid; it’s a simple way to dress up your hair without having to do anything too fancy or difficult. But after years of using the ol’ three strand method, I’m starting to think that people are catching on to my foolproof quote-on-quote “special occasion” hair.

So maybe it’s time to switch things up! Thanks to the wonderful ladies at Kouture Kiss, I have managed to find a way to spice up the braid while keeping it simple.

Instructions:

  1. Sweep all your hair to one side of your face. If you have bangs, I would suggest sweeping your hair in the same direction.
  2. Separate your hair into two sections. Set one section aside.
  3. Braid the first section of hair, starting at the base of your head below your ear.
  4. Finish your braid by tying it with a small elastic.
  5. Braid the second section of hair as the first, and tie off with an elastic.
  6. Use bobby pins to secure the two braids together side-by-side.
  7. Rock your new look!
