Basket Weave Hairstyle Design (By Request)

Basket Weave Hairstyle Tutorial

basket weave hairstyleThe woven hairstyle image above has been posted on our facebook page and requested in email probably more than any other style request we have received. This image has also been pinned all over Pinterest lately. When we were first sent this picture, there was a link to an account on http://tumblr.com (which I'm assuming was the account of the person who created this style.) That account has since been removed... so I'm not sure who to give credit to. If anyone knows who the creator of this style is or has a link to the original, please let me know and I'll add it in. ;)

Our recreation:

basketweavingWhen I first saw this hairstyle, I thought I could easily accomplish the look by using our Design Weaver the same way we did our basket weave. Well, I actually ran into some trouble with that. It was very difficult to keep the hair underneath separate from the weaving on top and it just didn't lay right. I also tried braiding in the weave by hand (with was pretty much a disaster) lol.

As you can see, our version of this basket weave is not quite as perfect looking as the original. Pretty close though, right?

If you like the look of basket weaving, woven braids, or weaving in general, here are a few more hairstyles to try:

  5. I tried it today on my kinder-gardener. It turned out so cute, and I thought it was pretty easy. I think laying on the couch made it easier for her to hold still.
