How To Style A Chain Braid

Lovely Chain Braid (click through for tutorial)We are all completely in love with Emma’s new blunt cut! As soon as I laid eyes on it I knew it would be perfect to try out some new hairstyles. The first style I chose was a chain braid, because it’s great for her particular length. Gals with longer hair, this will work for you too!

Lovely Chain Braid (click through for written steps)Step 1: Divide a section of hair in half and tie in a knot.

Step 2: Pick up a smaller section of hair on either side of the knot and add it to your strands (just as you would in a french braid).

Step 3-4: Tie in a knot again. Each time you tie a knot, add a small section of hair to each strand before you tie another. Continue tying and adding until you reach just behind the ear.

Step 5: Pin the chain braid in place with bobby pins.

Step 6: Create a pigtail, incorporating the braid. Pin into a bun and repeat all the steps on the other side of your head!

Thanks, Emma, for letting me play around with your hair. I can’t wait to try it on my own! xo. Katie
