What if I told you that you don’t have to know how to braid to achieve this hairstyle? That it would take you less than ten minutes? Come join me as I show you how to do just that. I am all about a hair style that achieves more for less, and this one does not disappoint! I call this the Faux Braid Weave.
Start by taking a small two inch section towards the front of your head. ( I’ll usually back comb at the root a little to create some volume right at the front of this hair style, but that’s my preference)
Split that section into two.
Now take section 2 and cross it over section 1
Then take section 1 and you’re going to weave it under a small section of hair that is hanging down closest to your face and bring it through. The section can be as small or big as you want it
After you bring it through you’ll want to brush the hair hanging down to untangle and pull it tight.
Next, you’ll take the strand that is on the bottom and bring it over the top of the strand on top.
From this point its just re-peating this entire sequence. Take the bottom strand ( always ) and weave it through another section of hair right behind that first section you wove earlier.
You’ll start to see a pattern that looks like this. Then cross the bottom strand over the top.
Again take the bottom strand and weave under a small section of hair.
Showing you the pattern here.
Cross the bottom strand over the top
Then weave under a small section of hair once again. You’ll continue this as far back as you want.
Once I have it as far back as I want to go, I’ll pull on the top a little to add some volume.
Grab a bobby pin to secure the back.
Secure the hair. I will go through and pull on pieces here and there and readjust the front so I can get a little more volume here as well.
And there you have it!
Thanks for being here! I hope you try this out and please tag me so that I can see it on you. If you are more of a visual learner, I’ll have a video uploaded on my IGTV on Instagram, and my YouTube channel.
