SEMI BOLD ACCENT BRAID

How-to: Gather a 2 1/2 section of hair an inch or so away from the hairline and create a reverse 3D French plait, braiding from underneath, versus over top. This plaiting technique will make your braid really pop and standout amongst all the curls. Pin in place and fluff up the curls around the braid to create a halo of ringlets.

How-to: Similar steps here. Take a 3 to 3 1/2 inch section of hair directly from the hairline, but this time create a reverse 3D French plait to rest directly on the hairline for a bolder and wider face-framing braid. Pin your braid in place and fluff up the curls around your braid to create further drama.
