Learning How To French Braid Tutorial - A Non Traditional ApproachOver 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!
How to french braid video:
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.
