The "Wave Braid" Hairstyle Tutorial

An Easy Braided Hairstyle

This "wave braid" or zig zag braided hairstyle is actually very easy and quick. The wavy look of this braid is created by stretching the strands in a zig zag pattern throughout the length of a regular 3 strand plait.

The braid in the hairstyle photo below was made by using a thicker strand of hair than in the photo above.  This braid will look a little bit different depending on the thickness and texture of the hair you are working with.

We opted to bring the 2 braids together at the back of her head (creating a crown braid look.) Of course, many different hairstyles and variations could be made with these braids! I like the relaxed, slightly messy, and beachy look of this hair style.

We were debating on calling this "The Leaf Braid" as the braid almost looks like a vine with sprouting leaves!  Whatever you want to call it, it's such an easy and cute hairstyle for summer!

  11. I pull the braids out on the side and then as I keep braiding I end up pulling them tight again. Ahhhhh so annoying.
