4 BRAID BA­SICS

Glamour Hair - - Three-strand Plait - GH

Some braids need a sim­ple twist; oth­ers re­quire oc­to­pus arms and a rear-view mir­ror. But the tools are the same. 1 Teas­ing comb It tex­turises hair so it doesn’t look too smooth or per­fect. 2 Bobby pins Smaller ones tuck in wispy pieces; larger ones hold back short, thick lay­ers.

3 Elas­tics Small elas­tic bands are al­most in­vis­i­ble in the hair.

4 Hair­spray A medium-hold spray keeps most braids in place, but more in­tri­cate styles may re­quire an ex­tra-strength for­mula.
