Hey there. Been a while.
So I got my hair braided yesterday in hopes of getting them cut into a bob. I went to three salons today and they all sounded shifty so I decided to do it myself. Giant leap of faith, I know, but isn’t that what life’s about? 😀 I just told myself that we’d make it work no matter how it turned out.
What you’ll need:
- rubber bands
First, part your braids how you’d like to be wearing them. I like me a side part. Ignore the headband, these braids couldn’t stay put.
Decide how short you want them to be; where you’ll cut, and use rubber bands to mark. I started banding single braids, then I got tired and bunched them up. Be careful about the back though, the band will probably get to your hair; just move it lower 😛 My ends are coloured so its very easy to tell.
Light your candle or whatever. Using the pair of scissors, cut below the band. Pass the blunt edge over the fire to melt the synthetic hair a little, then roll it between two fingers to seal. Be careful with the naked fire and where you place it.
So when they are all done remove the rubber bands and you’re done.
I love how they turned out! Short, but long enough to tie into a ponytail if I don’t want hair in my face. So yeah, phew!
Would you try this?
See you on the next one.
