How to Do Lace Braids

The lace braids are very similar to French braids, with the only difference that you’re not adding hair from both sides. In this case, you’re only adding it from one. You’ll soon see how simple it is once we break it down for you. First, you have to decide where you want the braid to be.

Let’s say that it’s in the front and starts in the middle part, moving towards the ear. You will be adding hair only from the right side. Get a strand of hair and divide it into three parts. Start braiding by putting the right over the middle one, then the left as well.

During the next step, you will get the strand that is on the right but also gets more hair from the side. Put it again over the middle, then the left over the right, without adding hair. Continue the same until you think you are done. You can do the lace braid wherever you want to. Such a flattering look for all ages!
