Wearing your hair in braid is both a practical and attractive fashion choice. Whether you're a man or a woman, learning how to braid your own hair can be a pain, especially if you're not sure how to do it. So if you want to learn how to braid your hair the theory is relatively simple; you just need to practice, practice, practice if you want to get the look quickly and easily.
Things You Will Need
Hair Tie (the smaller the braid, the smaller the tie that will be necessary)
Step 1Separate the hair you want to braid into three sections. Ideally this hair should be near the front of your head where you can see it, so if you have bangs then that's the best hair to use. You should be looking up at your hair, and there should be a definable left, middle and right as you're looking at them.
Grab the right third and the middle third in your fingers and twist once. Your two hair segments should be like a wire tie, and when the twist is done the segment that was the right side should now be the middle, and the segment that was the middle should now be on the right. You can twist clockwise or counterclockwise, but that direction is the direction you need to use for the rest of the braid.
While maintaining tension on your hair, grab what is now the middle segment and the left segment. Once again twist them the same direction as you did before so that these two sections have also changed places.
