Let’s admit it! Braiding your own hair is no easy task. Not everyone is a pro at braid-styling, especially when it comes to doing it for yourself. Firstly, you need patience, and secondly, you got to have strong arms.

Well, if you’ve already given up on braids, then you’ll be happy to know that we’ve found the perfect alternative for you. It’s called twisted hair lace!

A twisted hair lace will give the illusion of a braid, but it is just an easy-peasy twist that can look super chic if done right. You can pull off this hairstyle at work or even to a party. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ace this hairstyle… and the best part is, it won’t take you more than 5 minutes.

Step 01: Use a wide-tooth comb to remove any knots or tangles. Smoothen out your hair for a seamless hairdo

Step 02: With the help of a rat-tail comb, part your hair down the middle

Step 03: Now, take a bunch of your front hair, that is, the hair at the centre of your forehead and start twisting it, moving backwards

Step 04: Twist it tightly so that it looks as thin as lace. Now, pin the lace under your hair, and not on your head directly

Step 05: You can either create a hair lace on just one side or repeat the same on the other side

Step 06: Grab a curling iron to create waves to the rest of your hair. Finish off with a hair spray
