Hair Slide style... Simple Braid Loop

To make this simple style, start by making a single braid down the back. This is not a French Braid, although that could work too. If your braid tends to unbraid easily, secure your braid end.

Bring your braid up the back of your head, and place fingers at top, allowing the rest of the braid to fall back downward.


Wrap the end of your braid under the main portion of your braid, without tucking too much of the braid under as well. Hold your hand over the braid until you replace your hand with your slide.


Insert your stick, being sure to catch the outer loop of the braid as the stick goes through. You can make the loop wide or close together. In this picture it is a little wider. You can move the braid and stick the stick through as you do it to hold in place.


(The stick used here does not go with this slide, and is really a bit too long for it. I was trying out some of my sticks to see which ones I wanted to use with this)

If you have any questions, just let me know!

An easy style to do, but it looks very beautiful. I can never come up with pretty new styles the way you do!

I use a Fakkare clip instead or a Dolphin. It is so comfortable and keeps your hair up and out of the way at work!!

If you find your hair is getting stuck on the bands when you take them out, you ought to try pantyhose bands or the Ouchless or Snag-free bands. I think they come in black, but they also come in clear. That should work out well for you!
