The face framing lace braid is a hairstyle that’s perfect for days when you want to leave your hair down but style some sections at the same time. If you want to try this hairstyle, here are the easy steps to do it.

Step 1

Start with healthy hair

Keep your hair damage-free by using TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo and TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Conditioner to enjoy restored shine and moisture to your hair.

Step 2

Go left

Use the pointy end of a tail comb to part your hair on the left side, following a straight line from your hairline to the back.

Step 3

Stay put

Place a clip on the section of hair that you are going to braid to keep the rest of your hair from interfering as you braid it. Place it exactly at the point where you want to start braiding.

Step 4

Start braiding

Gather an inch-wide section of hair from the clipped part and divide this into three equal sections. Then, create a French braid, adding more hair to it as your braid progresses.

Just keep braiding

Continue braiding until you reach the tips of your hair. Then, secure your face framing lace braid with an elastic.

Protect from heat

Spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray all over your hair before styling it with heat.

Step 7

Curl it

Use a curling wand with a large barrel to make loose waves. To do this, wrap a section of hair at a time around your wand for three to five seconds, then release the section. Continue until all sections of your hair have been curled.
