step by step guide how to make a braided weave

Step 01: Run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to remove any knots or tangles before you go ahead and style your hair

Step 02: Now, take a rat-tail comb to give your hair a deep side parting. The handle of a rat-tail comb is useful when it comes to creating a hair parting accurately

Step 03: If you’ve parted your hair from the left side, then grab the front hair of the left side to make a braided weave, and vice-versa

Step 04: Lift the hair strand right above your ear and start braiding it how you would regularly

Step 05: Secure the end of your braid with a clear elastic

Step 06: Tug at your braid to make it look thicker and for it to stand out. Finish off with a hairspray.
