Video: Half-Up Half-Down Braid
Jasmin and I were playing around with Kurly Klips when we decided to add a braid to the half-up, half down ponytail. I love this style because it’s great for uncooperative hair days and requires minimal effort.
There are no cornrows in the making of this video! So for those of you who are cornrow averse, don’t worry.
Jasmin started her braid with three sections. Each of those three sections contained her hair mixed with the Kurly Klips hair. She then continued to braid downwards. To keep the braid secure, she simply used decorative pins.
For those of you who can’t watch the video right now (shout out to all my ladies at work!!!!), here’s the GIF tutorial:
As usual, Jasmin starts working from the bottom of her head up. She clips a three clip weft down by the nape of her neck, followed by a four clip weft above that. She then clips several two clip wefts around the crown of her head.
Then she reverses it. She clips a three clip weft right underneath her leave-out. She puts a four clip weft behind that, adding any two clips weft she needs for volume.
The she unravels her leave-out, covers her tracks, and makes a simple braid that she pins down with decorative pins.
And voila! A super easy style if you prefer your hair away from your face/if you just want to try something a little different.
And of course, it works brilliantly with the My Spirals collection as well!
