A Unique Braided Hairstyle For Long Hair and Medium Hair
We have been enjoying this fun "scallop edge braid" and have used it to make a variety of cute hairstyles recently!
There was a picture posted on our facebook page awhile back by one of our readers, which was a french braid or dutch braid with the edges of the plait flared out and woven. We decided to try and recreate that braid, but without the french braiding (to simplify it a bit) and this is how it turned out! Btw, I wish I could find that picture now to show you. But, facebook has made some changes to the way things are displayed on our page and I'm finding it very difficult to find older pictures on there now. UGH.
Her hair is getting quite long now, isn't it? I'm loving it with curls! I think this would be a cute hairstyle for a flower girl, wedding, church, recital, school, or even a renaissance faire.
If you are wondering how we created the curls shown in these pictures, we used a regular old curling iron and the curling technique found at this link: How to Curl Hair Video

P.S. If you are a regular to our site, and after watching the video... you may have recognized the technique used to make this braid from our Chain Link Braid Headband video (which used knots instead of a braid.)
- Below is one more fun variation to try with this braid!
(This picture probably won't make any sense unless you have already watched our video above.) But, instead of bringing the top strand underneath the 3 strands as shown in our video... try weaving it over and under the 3 strands, and then add it into the braid (as shown below.)
Making this slight change as you are braiding will result in the braid turning out much more intricate!
