Hairstyle Video: Tween "Slide-Up" Braid

I posted a hair trick back in March called the Tween “Slide-Up” Braid. Since I had last posted this trick, moms (and some teens) have requested that I create a video to show exactly how this braid is done. I hope this helps you!

This is a fun braid as it can accent pretty much any hairdo, be the feature hairdo in a combo, or a standalone like I have done here. You could even start lower on the one side and bring it over the top as a headband. Many sites show how to do this braid and Jill recently posted her version on our Facebook page.

The end result of this braid looks so intricate that other moms will think that you had spent 30 minutes weaving it when it really only took you 2 minutes (literally) with a simple braid! Also, don’t forget to join our Facebook fanpage, Cute Girls Hairstyles! Enjoy!

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, 1 small hair elastic.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!
