DIY: The 3 Strand Braid

I've decided to start fresh and with a very easy to do braid. I love all the requests for different braids and styles y'all have been sending me to do. So I decided let's start from the beginning with the most easy style: A 3 Strand Braid

I love the simplicity of this braid and once you get used to doing this style you can wear it so many different ways: single braided ponytail, braided bun, off to the side, half up ponytail, the list goes on. So make sure to check every Friday for a different style. You can also get your daily hair inspiration over on my Instagram account, @cabellobycarolina

So let's start off with putting your hair up into a ponytail. You can put it half up or all up, it's totally up to you.

Split that ponytail into three strands: A, B, & C

Bring strand A over B and under C

Now bring B over C and under A (the pattern is repetitive) 

Again, bring C, over A, under B

Keep repeating these same steps until you reach the end of your ponytail, secure it with a hair tie, spray it and voila you're done. 

Yes it might not be perfect the first time, but keep practicing it gets easier! Now go enjoy that run with your fabulous braid!

Have a great hair day! Xo
