Braided HairA pre-braided lace front wig.

Now there are two ways you can get the braided look:

  • Getting braided hair wigs.
    You can purchase braided wigs in box braids, cornrows, etc.
  • Box braid lace hair wigs come pre-braided, and you can wear them as you wear your regular lace wigs. These come in different colors and are comfortable to wear. Similarly, you can purchase pre-braided cornrow wigs. These cornrows are great if you want colors or styles. Both these types of braids protect your hair from heat styling, tight braids, colors, etc. Braided wigs are not limited to the types mentioned above, so if you want different braided styles, you have plenty of options.


Braiding Your Wigs

You can French braid your lace front wigs. French braids are great on your hair, but overusing this hairstyle can hurt your natural hair. I would recommend you to braid your lace wig instead of on your hair.

If you are new or a first-timer, then it’s better to put your wig on a mannequin head and then do the French braid.

Once you are familiar with it you can do the braid while wearing your wig.

 

Put your wig on a mannequin and start braiding.


Blow Out Hairstyle

Blowouts are gifts, whether you are doing it on your natural hair or your lace front wigs.

Blowouts provide massive volume and change your look significantly and offer a smooth and glossy look. Getting blowouts frequently is not good for hair, but I have a solution for you, getting a blowout on your lace wig. Doing so will protect your natural hair and provide fantastic volume to your wig.

Wavy lace wigs look very luscious when you get them blown out. There are synthetic lace wigs that can endure controlled heat, so if you have synthetic wigs, you can get this blowout look.

There are wigs made of synthetic and human hair that are pre blown out. With these types of wigs, you don’t have to do much unless you want to.

This type of hairstyle goes well with formal and casual clothes. Rock it with a pantsuit or a regular t-shirt and jeans. For a formal meeting, tie a high ponytail or a half ponytail and slay the meeting.

Another semi-formal event you wear a blowout hairstyle is at weddings. You can wear a body-hugging dress or a loose summer dress and complete the look with a beautiful voluminous blowout.

The High Ponytail Braids

Hair wigs are honestly one of the greatest things to ever exist along with the high ponytail braids hairstyle because these two go together like peanut butter and jam.

 

I've been guilty of throwing my hair up with an elastic a time or two (or more like a hundred). The traditional ponytail is fast, easy, and an almost too-perfect disguise for third-day hair; but let's be honest, it's boring. Listen, I'm not telling you to ditch the pony altogether—I won't—but this riff on the classic style will take things up a notch and is stupid easy to do (I'm talking one-additional-minute easy). This braided ponytail works on all Hair Texture and, even better, requires very little dexterity. As in, if you can do a simple three-strand braid, then you can do this look.

 

- Get a grip. To avoid a sad, skinny tail, mist texturizing spray over the length of dry hair tool add enough grit to keep things full.

- Create a little separation. Rake a sculpting paste (we like Sally Hershberger 24K Superiority Complex Texturizing Paste) through your roots as you scrape your hair back. That pieciness near your roots is what keeps the finish looking sporty and cool, not like you slicked things back before going for a jog.

- Start with a tight, low ponytail. "Braiding loose hair feels too romantic and soft," says hairstylist Anthony Turner, and romantic and soft is beautiful, but not what we're going for. Also, securing the braid at the top as well as the bottom will keep it in place all day if your hair usually slips right out of a braid.

- Lock it in. Smooth defining cream, like Redken Braid Aid 03, through the ponytail; it'll keep the braid clean and sharp by preventing any layers from poking through. Again, that's a look, just not this look.

 

French Braids Hairstyles

Frendch braids

The French braid is such a classic hairstyle, and once you know how, it’s easy to do it yourself.

The french braid was my ultimate childhood hairstyle. I coveted them when I saw them walking the halls of my elementary school and was privy to them only on occasions such as dance recitals or wedding receptions. My mom didn’t know how to french braid, so she would take me to the local salon on such occasions.

The french braids of my youth were tight, rigid and designed to stay in for 2-3 days. Finally, my mom, taking a note from the “teach a man to fish parable”, bought me a DIY braid book that I instantly began studying in order to master my own french braid. I have memories of being in the back of the mini van with a laser sharp focus to each step on the page. Here are some tips to for the perfect French Braid:

 

  • If you have fine hair, or want to give it some more volume, start with a little hairspray and a gentle backcomb at the top.
  • Secure the braid with a covered rubber band so that it doesn’t damage the ends of your hair.
  • Make the end of the braid appear fuller by gently teasing the bottom strands with your fingers.
  • Use pins to pretty up your braid!

milkmaide hairstyle for black womenMilkmaid Fishtail Braids

 

Follow these steps to get the amazing milkmaid braids:

  • Section Your Hair: Before you learn how to milkmaid braids, start by washing your hair with Shampoo and Conditioner. Once your hair is dry, use your fingers to section your hair all the way down the centre. It doesn’t need to be precise, so long as you have an even amount of hair on each side.

 

  • Plait Your Hair: Leave out a small section of hair from the front on each side to help frame your face. Then, taking the bulk section of your hair on the right side, create a classic 3-strand braid, starting just above your ear. Stop plaiting your hair 2-3 inches from the bottom, before securing it with a hairband. Repeat this step on the left section of your hair.

 

  • Secure The Braids: Now it’s time to actually create your milkmaid braid. Once you’ve finished plaiting each side of your hair, you need to secure the braids across your head to give the desired milkmaid braid effect. Take your left braid and place it across the top of your head, just behind your loose sections of hair. Secure it with bobby pins every few inches along the plait.

Now do the same with the right braid, placing it just behind the left one. If you have long hair, and find that your plaits don’t finish in the centre of your head, you can bring them down behind your ears and secure them.

 

  • Set With Hairspray: To help your fabulous milkmaid braid last all day, spritz it with some Hairspray, holding the bottle at arms-length.

 

Sleek Wavy Hairstyles

Elegantly flat wavy hair that isn’t a chore to style. Here’s how to get the look.

Step 1: Start smooth.

After washing and rough drying, add in Hair Balm from the roots to the tips and use a round brush to dry the hair. That’s what will give hair that smooth, fly-away-free finish.

Bonus tip: While blow-drying your hair will help smooth over the hair shaft, you can also get a similar look by parting damp hair in the center and working through a smoothing styling cream. Then, create two 3-strand braids. Sleep on the braids and undo them in the morning for gorgeous flat waves without any heat damage.

Step 2: Add curl.

Take two-inch sections of hair and a smaller barreled curling iron and, wrapping the hair down the wand, create your loose, S-shaped waves. This is how you’ll create the curl without the volume.

Step 3: Shine!

A sleek, Cher-in-the-sixties look is what we’re aiming for with these flat waves, so a mirror like sheen is essential. Spritz on some hairspray to add a whole lot of shine and fight any humidity-induced frizz.

 

Fishtail Braids

 

The main difference between a French and fishtail braid is that your grandma probably only wore the French braid. Besides being more chic, technically the french braid uses three strands to create the braid. Fishtail braids have two main strands alternately pinching small bits of hair from the outside of those two strands alternating.

 

Here’s how to achieve the look:

  • Pull hair back into a ponytail. If this is your first time trying a fishtail braid, start by securing your hair with a disposable clear elastic or a hair bungee.
  • Divide the ponytail into two smaller, equal-sized ponytails.
  • separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the left ponytail.
  • Pull this piece across the top of the left ponytail over to the right ponytail. Don’t twist the hair as you bring it across.
  • Next, separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the right ponytail.
  • Pull this piece across the top of the right ponytail over to the left ponytail.
  • Repeat steps 3-6 until you run out of hair. Don’t worry if it’s messy that’s part of the charm.

 

Reverse Fishtail Braids

As you know, the stitches on a standard Fishtail Braid have a distinct “v” herringbone pattern.

A reverse {or Inverse} Fishtail Braid has an inverted pattern which is very different from what you see around.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  • Begin by combing all the hair into a high ponytail or desired location of the fishtail and secure with a hair band {I sprayed the hair with water first, to make the ponytail clean and crisp}
  • Separate the ponytail into two equal sections.
  • Take a small sliver of hair from the outside edge of the right section, and take it behind the rest of that same section and combine it into the inside edge of the left section {in a regular fishtail braid, you would go over the section of hair, and not under}
  • Now take a small sliver of hair from the outside edge of the left section, and take it behind the rest of that section, and combine it into the inside edge of the right section {simply the opposite of Step #3}
  • Continue Steps 3 & 4 over and over again until you run out of hair.
  • When you get to the end of your braid, secure it with a hair elastic.
  • You may tug on the edges of the braid to soften the fishtail, and create a more romantic look, if desired.
  • Add any desired hair accessory {such as a bow, ribbon or clip} to finish it off.
