The Wrapped Braid by Mindy McKnight

In today’s #hairstyle #tutorial, I am showing you guys how to complete a wrapped braid! I think that my favorite thing about this look is how versatile it is. You can dress it up or down, depending on how you choose to accessorize the braid! We went for a more mature look, making the #braid look super fluffy and finishing it off with an adorable velvet ribbon. If you wanted it to look a little bit more casual, you could place a scrunchie around the top, or just leave the hair tie exposed. This is such a great style for school, and anytime that I can achieve a look that’s this darling in less than 10 minutes, sign me up!

This look was inspired by Chikas Chic, check out their instagram HERE ➡️

Items Needed: Hair tie, clear elastic, bobby pins, desired accessories (ribbon, scrunchies, etc)

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step 1: Pull hair into low ponytail.

Step 2: Separate ponytail into 3 even sections.

Step 3: Cross left section over the middle piece.

Step 4: Take a smaller piece from the same left section and loop it around the ponytail, and then place it back into its original section.

Step 5: Cross the right section over next, and repeat step 4. Continue all the way down the braid.

Step 6: Once you have completed the braid, go in and pancake the hair. (Meaning, tug on the sections of the braid above the zig zags to make the braid look fuller.

Step 7: Secure braid with an elastic.

Step 8: Using a bobby pin, secure any stray pieces of hair into place.

Step 9: To finish off the look, add any accessories to the braid. We chose a velvet ribbon, but you could also try a scrunchie for a more casual look!
