Easy Hair Style for Long Hair | How To: Basic French Braid

Published on August 22, 2019

hey guys how are you it’s Lilly here and

today I’m going to be going back to the

basics and I’m going to be teaching you

guys how to create a regular French

braid all the way in the back so if you

still don’t know how to do it or if you

just want to touch up on your technique

then keep watching and I will take you

through all the steps so to master the

French braid all you really need is a

lot of practice just and just a few

basic tools like a brush to comb through

the hair as your first step and then

just a small elastic at the end to tie

in your braid and then at the end some

hairspray if you have any flyaways or

anything like that so that’s pretty much

all we need and the first thing I’m

going to do is just brush all the hair

backwards so for the rest of this

tutorial I’m going to turn around and do

it backwards and try to give you guys

easy directions that you can follow so

here we are starting off with my hair

that has been brushed thoroughly and

what I’m going to do is just pick up a

section of hair going from all the way

at the front where your banger is all

the way towards your crown area and you

can just separate that from the rest of

your hair and divide that into three

sections once you have this divided into

three sections all you want to do is

crisscross the hair so the left this is

my left and this is my right and this is

the center the Luntz going to go over

the center and then the right is going

to go over the center so here is the

left over the center and here’s the

right over the center but once we have

this first beginning of the braid all

you want to do is grab sections from the

sides and keep adding them to the sides

so here is my right so what I’m going to

do is grab a section of hair just with

your finger from the very front like

this and just add that to your right

side we’re going to hold it tight and

now we’re going to do exactly the same

thing on the left side so we’re just

gonna pick up with your fingers strand

and just add that to your left side so

once you have that here added in you

just going to grab it and just bring

that over the center strand like that

and then now this is the center so we’re

going to bring the right over the center

as well so here we go we’re going to

just bring that over so now that we have

the hair added in we’re going to hold it

tight and basically keep doing the same

exact thing so I’m going to add some

hair from the side right here to my

right section in a hole tight the center

and then do the same thing over here

hold it tight and then bring that over

the center again so here we go we got

our second part done and basically at

this point you just want to keep going

just hold it everything really tight and

keep doing the same exact thing we’re

going to keep adding hair here like that

with our finger to the right side you’re

going to separate the hair hold it tight

hold the middle tight and then we’re

going to add more hair here on the side

add it into our left side bring that

over the center hold it tight bring the

right over the center cross them

together just make sure everything is

tight and then again we’re going to just

grab section of hair from the side bring

that over and add it to your right side

pull tight bring section of hair from

your left side and just add that into

your left section hold everything tight

bring it over the center and basically

at this point you want to just keep

going and adding hair until you get to

the nape of your neck and then I’m going

to turn around and finish off with a

break

so once you’ve finished braiding in the

back at this point when you reach the

nape of your neck all you want to do is

just finish off with a regular three

strand braid so I’m going to braid that

all the way to the end and just secure

that with a small elastic band so at

this point once you have secured the end

of the braid you’re pretty much done if

you have flyaways like me or like baby

hair all you want to do is just apply a

little bit of hairspray just to smooth

it all down just like that and then I’m

going to smooth it all down so that’s it

you guys once you have smooth down the

hair this has done the French braid is

done all you got to do is practice

practice practice if you don’t get it

from the first try it’s a very simple

technique but something that takes a

while to get for some reason even for me

when I was first learning it so here you

are I hope you guys enjoyed this video

if you don’t get it again just keep

watching the technique until you get it

and keep practicing and if you do

recreate the look then I use a hashtag
