This unique "crochet" looking ribbon braid is actually a request from one of YOU. :) This is inspired by a picture of a hairstyle someone posted on our facebook page awhile ago with a request to show how to do the ribbon in the picture..... I'm not sure where the picture came from or who actually made up this ribbon technique (you can search through our facebook page in the "fan photos" to see the original) but I think it looks pretty cool!
It took me awhile to figure out how to do this and I had to study the picture quite a bit! But if you know how to crochet, this should be easy for you.
Of course you could use this technique in sooo many different hairstyles to spice up your braids. I'm thinking this would be a great way to add some color to a hair style for any team sport like gymnastics, cheerleading, soccer, and other occasions. The possibilities are endless!
We just did a couple of simple cornrows here to get the basic technique down. Since then we have been having lots of fun with this! I'm thinking one of our Heart Hairstyles would be super cute with some added crocheting!
And here's the video tutorial.
Would love to see your hairstyle pictures if anyone tries this one! Feel free to post them on our facebook page any time.
