Y2K Inspired Mini Braids Hair Tutorial
Let’s get into it! I’m doing this tutorial on second day hair because I think it will hold the curls and braids better.
First things first, I’m brushing my hair out using a Tangle Teezer.
1
Separate the top section of your hair. I want lots of curls and lots of volume for this look and the separation will help me get that.
2
I’m using a 1” barrel curling iron at 330 degrees Fahrenheit to curl 1/2” sections of hair and alternating directions of the curls.
3
Continue to curl and alternate the direction of the curls to get a voluminous effect on the bottom section.
4
Take down one side of the top section and brush it out. Continue to curl 1/2” sections all the way around.
5
Remember: the smaller the sections of hair, the tighter the curls will be.
Looking good! Now I’m using a dry texturizer to add a bit more volume and oomph to the curls.
6
Part your hair the way you want it. Take a 1” section at the front of your hair and braid a tiny braid all the way to the end.
7
Repeat on the other side of your hair. You can secure the braids with tiny elastics if you’d like but I skipped that because I didn’t have any.
Finish off the look with a hairspray of your choice for extra hold.
