How To Create Yarn Braid Hair Extensions

Long hair are almost never out of fashion for ladies, but the longer the hair the more grooming they require. If you are an Asian or a Caucasian then growing your hair long is not a big deal, however, if you are an African then growing those curls of yours might be a tad harder than you had expected.

Curly hair do not grow well and you just cannot allow them to branch out everywhere because then instead of supporting a cool look, you would probably dread the moment you decided not to get a haircut.

However, fear not as you do not have to support that unwanted trim hair look anymore and can enjoy long hair by supporting yarn braid hair extensions.

Creating yarn braid hair extensions requires plenty of practice and patience.

Things Required:

– Yarn
– Hair comb
– Hair clips
– Ribbons or beads
– Scissors

    Now the fun part begins as you need to separate sections of hair, and for this it is suggested that you use a comb to separate small sections of your hair where the yarn extensions will be used. Work on one section at a time, as it is much easier that way. Also clip the surrounding hair to stop them from getting in the way.

    The next step is to cut the yarn; you need to cut two pieces of yarn. Make sure that one is twice the length of the other piece. Knot the short piece at the mid-point of the longer piece in a way that three strands hang down.

    You now need to braid the yarn in the hair. Hold the yarn from the knot and then slip the knot end behind the area of the hair you want to braid. It is important to remember that you need to braid the yarn along with the hair. Once you finish braiding, tie a knot at the bottom.

    Repeat this on the remaining hair, moving from one section to the next.
