Hair Coils, or "Spring Rings"
fishtail braid hairstyle video if you are wondering.
The day she wore this hairstyle, several people stopped to ask "The Princess" if these coils were actually her hair... or a hair accessory! I actually had some crocheted spiral hair accessories made from yarn when I was a little girl that looked kind of similar to these coils! Do any of you remember those??
The Spring Rings Hair Tutorial:
This technique we used to create these coils is similar to the technique used in creating "slide up braids" or "snake braids" which are quite a popular hair trend using a 3 strand braid. These hair coils use 2 strands. The key to not getting flyaways as you slide the coil up, is all in the way you make the rope braid in the beginning. It is very important to twist the strands (as shown in our video tutorial) while you are creating the braid, or this will not work.
