The Princess Braid
for Curly Hair

EXPERT TIP

For more volume, flip your hair upside down and spray your roots with the flexible-hold hairspray.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK

STEP 1

Wash and condition hair.

STEP 2

Towel-dry hair until damp and scrunch with a towel to help prevent damage and split ends.

STEP 3

Fill your palm with straightening crème, and with your hands, work the crème through your hair, scrunching as you move from root to tip. Blow-dry hair completely with a regular blow-dryer, using your fingers to remove any tangles in the hair.

STEP 4

Use the pick end of a steel comb to create a part on the right-hand side of your head. With the part still intact, separate the top layer of your hair and clip it out of the way.

STEP 5

Take a one-inch section from the bottom layer of your hair; place the tips over a large hot roller and roll hair up to the scalp. Secure the rollers in place with a pin or big claw clip. Repeat across the bottom layer of hair, and then repeat with the top layer of hair. In total, you should have 12-15 rollers in your hair. Leave the rollers in until they are cold.

STEP 6

Take out the bottom rollers first, unrolling the rollers carefully from root to tip. Repeat this process with the top rollers. Brush through the sections with a flat brush, creating big waves (not curls).

STEP 7

Starting at your part, take a 2-inch section of hair from the hairline and begin braiding across your forehead and down the left-hand side of your hair (away from the part). As you braid, add a small amount of hair (10 strands) from the rest of the hair, making each braided section slightly larger as you go; this will anchor the braid to the head. Secure the braid one inch from the tips of your hair with a rubberband.

STEP 8

Spray hair with shine spray for 2-3 seconds.

STEP 9

Finish this braid hairstyle by spraying a flexible-hold hairspray all over the hair, holding the can 10 inches away.
