Braids can make you look polished, but they can also give you a relaxed and carefree vibe. 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.
How to Make a Face Framing Lace Braid
Start with healthy hair
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.
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.
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.
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.
Make your waves loose and relaxed by styling them using your fingers.
Now, you’ve got a beautiful face framing lace braid. You can complement this casual look with a mini-dress and a pair of sneakers. You can also give your whole look a summer vibe by pairing this hairstyle with denim shorts and a loose shirt.
Well, making a face framing lace braid isn’t difficult at all. In fact, you can make it your go-to hairstyle when gunning for a chic summer look.
