Starting work on the next section of the hairstyle, I had no idea that I can weave a French braid. However, later I made a discovery: what I called a child pigtails "dragon", very similar to the technique of weaving in the French style. Makes them that the two form a fairly clear parting, forming a pattern on the head.
French braids are also called
"Braids on the head" or "weaving in the skin"
. These names speak for themselves, because the lagging braids are close to the scalp and form on it a kind of geometric pattern. The shape of the latter can be chosen by the client and will depend only on the imagination, as to date, the master of hairdressing able to realize almost any whim and implement wildest dreams.
A little history
French weaving among the first representatives appreciated the extreme youth of the streets. New hairstyle was so functional that French braided hair does not interfere engaged in active sports such as streetball, snowboard or skateboard. In addition, the holder of such a hairstyle could easily break dance with all its acrobatic movements without fear that your hair will not be allowed to perform the most daring stunts.
French braids pretty quickly moved from the streets to the catwalks, glossy pages and star head. And as long as this hairdo has got football player David Beckham, it became obvious that such fashionable and topical today concepts like youth, extreme and eccentricity became also the most desirable characteristics of human individuality no matter what it is sex: male or female.
Thanks to French braids their owner immediately stands out from the crowd, because he was not only the bearer of stylish hairstyles, but also seemed to be saying about who he is and who he wants to see.
- Hair style for people who are confident in themselves, capable of a fresh look at the world. Complexes long since gone out of fashion, and with them have sunk into oblivion hiding human eye long shaggy bangs. French braids characterize their owner as a person walking in step with the times. Such a person is not only not afraid to look people in the eye, but also ready to show itself to the world from an unexpected angle, wants, and most importantly can be different, without losing their individuality.
Vypletennye French-style braids have also become a real boon for the beauties who prefer long hair and curls. It is believed that the longer the hair - the wider the field for experimentation (with the appropriate level of skill barber). But what about the woman who either due to proximity of the summer, or just the mood, I want to feel not only feminine, but also young, modern, unusual, and just a little - but crazy? In this case, French braids - the best and, perhaps, the only right decision. Furthermore, in this weaving style can easily be combined with other forms of braids example afrokosichki or with straight hair and feminine such curls.
However, in order to become the owner of French braids, not necessarily be the owner of a lush head of hair. It is enough to own hair length reached ten - fifteen centimeters, all the rest will provide the hands of masters and special material for afropleteniya -
Artificial strands can also be used when a large amount of his own hair for as long as possible to maintain hairstyle intact.
If we talk about term life of French braids, the average of its duration ranges from one and a half to two months. During this time, you can wash your hair (with a soft sponge or without) the usual means of hair at intervals not more than once a week.
The basis of hairstyles - braids, French braids, or "Dragon". What to choose?
I would like to warn that the French technique of weaving braids different from what many now called the braided style "Dragon."
A distinctive feature is that the pigtail "Dragon" is usually woven oblique inward and makes it quite clearly outline the parting, which form typical of French braids geometric shapes.
Original French braid pigtails much more complicated, they require more skill hairdresser, as well as perseverance and patience model. For beginners in this art will be much easier to master the technique of braiding "Dragon", and with the improvement of skills to move to more sophisticated French braids.
In this case, (in the preparation of a master class) a matter of choice braids in the style of "Dragon" was due to the fact that the model is too young and not ready for long sitting at a reception at the hairdresser, who concurrently was also her mother.
Weave the basis for hair
First we need some vertical weave braids. What is the technique used in this case - "Dragon" or "pigtails in French" - choose only to you.
So, for weaving basics you need to use a comb to divide the hair into three unequal parts: the side should be about the same, the average should be much greater, as it implies further division. The best way to fix your hair, so they do not interfere with weaving.
From the side portions to perform braiding style "dragon" and secure thin scrunchy.
Hair in a bun need to dissolve and once again divided into three, but now equal, parts. Central part of the hair is also better secure the top to excess hair does not interfere with weaving.
Three braids braid style "dragon". Initially, also need to perform a weaving side portions, and then, returning to the middle part, to dissolve the hair and place and in a pigtail.
The basis for various hairstyles of five pigtails ready. I must say that the number of braids can be different: it will depend on the thickness of hair, as well as on whether to use artificial fibers for weaving.
This hairstyle is formed from the braids, collected at random in a ponytail. The lower the tail, the longer the bunch of hair. The tips of the braids to hide inside, and fix beautiful tail band.
To do this hairstyle will need barrettes, which are also called "crabs." Secure each pigtail using barrettes, hair ends tucked inside, pre-lacing braid in the form of baskets.
In order to do this hairstyle, you need to partially dissolve the hair braided for the night. If you have a slightly protruding ("elf") ears, the two outer braids need to untwist a little more, that allow to hide the slight defect. Secure each braid hairpin, best used as so-called "crab." Comb her hair gently, fan or just their hands.
Hairstyle "Wavy waterfall"
After the haircut "Snake" slightly podnadoest you can untwist all the hair. Thus it is better again, not combing her hair, and only slightly fluff their hands.
In conclusion, I would like to once again draw your attention to the fact that much depends not only on skill, but on a flight of fancy barber, as well, and yours, because you yourself can suggest an idea to create a masterpiece.
Braided framework of French braids once (to clean hair), can be further simply formed of her different hairstyles, pleasing yourself and your family unique (and each time new) images.
When he came to the party in such a (possibly new for yourself), you definitely will not only become queen of the ball, but also a trendsetter in your company.
Works wonders with us, and remember that the main thing - to believe!
