How To French Braid For Beginners

Learning How To French Braid Tutorial - A Non Traditional Approach
how to french braidOver our years of "hair blogging" I think the most highly requested video we have been asked for would have to be a how-to on french braiding. There are many great Youtube videos on this subject already, so I recommend searching there as well. I realize that everyone learns differently, so it might be helpful to watch several videos until you find one that explains it in the best way for you.

French braiding is one of those skills that is easy once you get the hang of it, but can be hard to learn at first (kind of like riding a bike!) It does require a lot of practice. I thought we would try a different approach for this video instead of the traditional method and I'm hoping this will be helpful!

When I first had this idea, I was hoping to find something that would grip the hair a little tighter and stay in place better, but was unsuccessful. As you can see in our video, our tricky tool (toe separator made by neat feet) really isn't the perfect solution. My thought is, if you can figure out how the braid is basically made while watching this video, hopefully it will be easier for you to practice with your hands and perfect the braid later.

  7. I love this, thank you!

    My big issue with learning how to french braid is that most of the tutorials have somebody braiding on on somebody else's hair. The angle is different if you're braiding your own hair, especially since you can't see the top of your head. Do you have any suggestions for that?

  15. This was amazingly helpful. I didn't have to use the toe separator, but it was essential to understanding how the hair moves from one side to the other. Your use of this little device totally helped me to understand. That was real innovation that you used a commonly known item to help people understand how to braid. Thank you so very much.

    I don't mean to brag, but I first watched the video once, then on the second watch, I got it! :') It's easier if you try it with thicker sections first!

    Good luck, all!
