How to Create an Infinity Braid Combo

Today we will be teaching you how to create an Infinity Braid Combo hairstyles. I have been meaning to film this hairstyle tutorial for some time now after seeing it first on Instagram at HairAndNailsInspiration over a year ago. I’d completely forgotten about it until my friend Braidsandstyles12 recently recreated her version on IG, too. This Dutch version of the Infinity braid has existed for awhile now, but these two individuals were my inspiration.

Infinity Braid Combo | Cute HairstylesAlthough we’ve taught you a traditional Infinity Braid before, this version adds in pieces of hair along the way more like a Dutch Braid would, which allows you to take the braid down the back of the head. We created a combo with it by finishing off the braid into a chunky fishtail!

If you have thick hair, I’d suggest doing two braids, side by side, instead of one… as the infinity strand can can get super thick fast!

Kamri has been wearing this Infinity Braid Combo hairstyle a lot lately, and receives so many compliments on it. Particularly because the chunky look of the infinity braid connects perfectly well with the chunky fishtail, giving you a beautiful looking braid!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 7-10 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Beginning with the hair wet, damp, or even dry, section off a decent-sized top section of hair from about the edge of one eyebrow to the other, and divide it into two even sections…
  2. Now go to the right side of the head and pick up a very small section of hair near the front of head, and take this strand UNDER the right strand of hair and OVER the left strand…
  3. Then pick up a small section of hair from the left side of the head and add this to the strand you just weaved through the hair, then taking that new strand and weaving it UNDER the left section piece and then OVER the right strand…
  4. Now, again, pick up more hair on the right side and add it into the strand you just weaved through the hair,then taking that new strand and weaving it UNDER the right strand and OVER the left…
  5. Continue Steps #2-4 until you run out of hair to add into the infinity braid…
  6. Optional: You can finish the braid off here with a curly ponytail, a simple 3-strand braid, or even a fishtail braid {as we’ve done here}.
  7. When finished with your braid, secure it with a hair elastic, and go back and pancake both braids to add volume and chunkiness to the hairstyle…
  8. Add hairspray {if desired}
