Braided hairstyles for short hair come in a variety of choices. The most frequently used braids include French braids and fishtail braids. If you own such short hair and look for the ways to make braids on them, here are some steps to consider.
Fishtail Braided Hairstyles for Short Hair
Comb the hair into all over parts starting from the forehead to the nape. Try to begin the step always from the top since it can ease you to do the work. Then, split the hair into two sections equally. Keep the sides with your ring and little fingers on sides A and B. Pull a small piece of strands from the outer side of side A. Place it over into the center between sides A and B. Repeat the same way to the side B.
The overlapping strands will form an X. Continue braiding until the whole strands overlap the center. Braid the hair downward until there are no more strands to overlap to the center and reaching the end of hair. Also, ensure that the overlapping pieces of strands are symmetrical. Wrap the bottom part of braid with elastic band or bead to secure it.
French Braided Hairstyles for Short Hair
Smoothen the hair by lightly misting some conditioner or moisturizer and then comb it over. Though working on damp hair will be easier, still make sure that you do not soak the hair. Again, brush the hair completely in order to free any tangled hair. Start braiding from a particular side of head, it can be from the top part or from the side part around temples. Take a small piece of hair and split it into three equal sections. Braid them together.
Once you bring a new section of hair to the center, add more strands from back of the hair so the braided hair look like it is braided continually in piling-up pattern. Adding hair each time you bring a section toward the middle will also help to make the braids look thick and tight. You can either make it on the whole hair or just have it halfway.
