So many emails have come in asking how I did the braid on Lauren’s hair for her last Chelsea Lately appearance. I recently recreated that braid and took a couple photos so you could see it up close. Here’s the very simple secret to this braid:
In a regular braid there are 3 strands. For this look, all you do is braid one of those strands beforehand and loosen it up with your fingers, then braid as usual. This creates extra texture + breaks up the mundane pattern of a regular braid.
Watch this video to see how it looks as the pieces loosen up and naturally fall out of the braid:
