Hair Tutorial Video: “How to Braid Your Hair”

Good Morning. We hope everyone is having a Magnificent Monday! We’re back with another hair video! This video was requested by our friend E, *waving* HEY E! It’s a tutorial on ‘how to braid’ (two braids bobby pinned into a protective style).

I did NOT know how to braid my hair a few years ago, I would always depend on Charla for that lol. One day Charla convinced me to try it myself (one because I was driving her insane asking her to do my hair every morning and two she knew she would not always be around to save me from bad hair days so I needed to learn how to do it myself).

Anyways by sitting in front of the mirror and practicing I was able to learn myself. This experience has made me a firm believer in the saying ‘Practice Makes Perfect’. The video is less than 5 minutes but we hope it is helpful.  Check it out below & as always feel free to provide us with feedback:

What’s your favorite protective style?
