French Braid Bang Tutorial







I really enjoy wearing this braid on my bangs.  It kind of dresses it up without too much fuss.  This particular braid was never taught to me, i just kind of figured it out one day while attempting to braid my bangs. I am constantly asked how i make it so i figured i'd attempt to do a tutorial.   I will do my best to take you step by step, though if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
Before taking you through the written steps, here's a quick video tutorial!


Take three pieces of hair.  To facilitate this, lets call the piece on the top A, the middle B and the closest to my forehead C. 

Take piece C and place it over B (it now becomes the middle piece 'B')



Take piece C and merge it with A.  So now you only have two pieces C & B.

So now you'll need to grab another chunk of hair from your bangs to add piece C.  So you're back to having three chunks of hair.  You basically repeat this process until you feel you've reached the look you want.







Basically if you know how to do a basic braid, you will do that with the exception of merging the two pieces as stated above and then adding another chunk from your bangs.  I know it's a bit confusing to explain which is why i used the ABC examples.  Hopefully the pictures will help.
I basically tuck my braid under the hair by using a couple of bobby pins  to secure it in place. 


Here's the finished product.  Not the best picture of me but you get the idea .
