Perfect hairstyle with hair braids: Take a quick look

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/31/2006 | Beauty

Carefully tying your hair in braids can really pour in your ethnic touch and even give you a timeless look, most classical in women with long hair around the globe. Women with mid-length hair also love to follow this style for two reasons.

Hair braids will definitely make a difference in your entire getup and above all will protect your hair from loads of dust and tons of moisture in the summertime and get affected by mist and snow in the winters.

Making plaits or hair braids is a very easy technique which girls learn as they grow up. The plain and simple braided hairstyle can be quickly done by any woman.

The hair has to be first divided into three parts. You can also bipartite the hair from the middle in the top layer or do a back brush and turn the entire hair in the reverse direction. Now when you are ready with the three divisions at the length below from the dividing point, gently fold to make the plaits.

The intertwining of the hair will be such that you take one division, overlap it with the middle division and the second knit will be the between the intertwined and the third division of the hair strands. The first braid that will form should be neatly done leaving no hair out except the ones you have intentionally left out for added beauty.

Once the turns and folds have been made you can relax with pleasure that you have weaved the fibers, here of course with your hair! One thing must be done to keep your hair healthy while you set down to tie the braids is that the hair should be moistened and conditioned. Then the chances of hair being easily pulled out of the plaits can be avoided.

The most favored braided style among the female folk is the French braid hair plaiting style. When you intend to tie up you hair in that very way, the first condition is that the hair should be shampooed on that day itself and properly conditioned. No tangles should remain while the braids are formed. So remove them with hair sprays and soft brushing effect.

The French braids are tied from the center of the head and not from round the lower ends of hair strands hanging near the neck. Here also a tripartite division is sought to arrange the plaits and that begins from the forehead region. The braids will form with the help of the three hair strands but in a crisscrossing manner where hair will be taken from both sides. Once the portions of the head are done with the neatly styled braids, then do the normal plaiting to the rest of the length of your hair. You can tie the end with an elastic band leaving a good length out of the braids and kept open.

In the summers you really dont have time to wear that sophisticated hair pattern and move about. But you cant be careless in maintaining your hair either. Summers and sweats are very common to cause harm to your hair and make it dull and damp. So casual braids tied in thin strands and plenty of numbers can be an easy way to protect your hair from excess heat.

Similarly you can always make two braids coming out of two sides that can give you a smarter look in a casual outfit or summer cool dress. So lady love also love and pay enough attention to your hairstyles as they shape your complete being.
