Compliments guaranteed! This is the most beautiful braid hairstyle for long hair...
People love the familiar: Most of them have the same haircut cut over and over again, buy the same favorite products over and over again in the drugstore and rely on familiar patterns even in relationships. But sometimes the most beautiful things happen when you leave your comfort zone and try something new.
When it comes to hairstyles, our familiar favorite is without question the ponytail. With just a little effort, however, you can now give it a stylish upgrade. We guarantee: You will always get compliments for your hairstyle!
We found our new favorite hairstyle for long hair with influencer Breanna Cohoon, who constantly provides cool inspiration with short hair tutorials on her Instagram account. While some of her hairstyles are pretty complicated (let alone have a talent for braiding), this braid hairstyle is easy to style for long hair.
In the video Breanna shows how the most beautiful plait hairstyle for long hair can be achieved:
Step 1 (optional): Prep your hair with some texture spray. As a result, they are easier to style, are no longer so slippery, and hold better.
Step 2: Tie the top half of your hair into a low half ponytail with a transparent hair tie. Tip: The hairstyle looks best with a center parting!
Step 3: Now you divide the hair that is still loose into two strands, lift it once on the left and once on the right over the half ponytail and tie it above with a hair elastic to form another ponytail.
Step 4: Now twist in the top ponytail once. To do this, turn the hair tie with your hair towards your head and thread the entire braid through the gap above the hair tie. To make the next step easier, loosen the ponytail a little - pull the hair elastic a little towards the tips.
Step 5: Now you turn the top braid 180 degrees counterclockwise so that the left and right strands cross over the hair elastic and form a loop. Now you can pull the lower ponytail through. Then just pull the hair elastic tight so that everything holds.
Sounds complicated? But it is not. Just take a look at the Instagram video above for an illustration.
