I recently created a short video to show how I incorporated the snake braid into a half updo in under ten minutes! But, I wanted to create this how-to article as well.
I did this look with straight hair but I have also tried it with curly hair (which makes this style look a little fancier)
Here are The 3 Things You Will Need to Snake Braid Hair Style:
- About 10 Bobby pins (depending upon how thick your hair is)
- Teasing Comb
- Hairspray (Aussie Instant Freeze)
Here are my 6 simple steps to complete this look like Snake Braid Hair Style:
Take a section of hair, about just behind your bangs and backcomb the hair. To tease the hair, take small sections (hold the end with one hand, if you are right-handed you will hold with your left hand) and using a comb brush the hair towards your head. Hairspray this section and continue until you have reached the desired volume.
Smooth the top layer of hair (that you just teased) out until there are no bumps.
The next step is to take a section of hair (near your ear) and braid it toward the back of your head until you have almost reached the end.
Now you are going to hold the two outside strands of the braid in one hand and the middle strand in the other. Push the two outside strands up until you have reached the desired length. For this hairstyle, I made the braid long enough to be pinned near the back of my head.
The last step to the braid is bobby pinning it at the back of the head. For a better hold crisscross the bobby pins.
Now you will repeat steps three through five on the other side of your head.
Bobby pin the back of the hair to hold the volume and you are finished!
