So we told you before about the Halo Hairstyle that was all the rage at Golden Globes 2012 and so Glamzzle is back again to give you a visual and step-by-step tutorial of how to get this Halo pleat, Halo braid or Halo pleat.
Halo braid is a great angel halo hair style and this can even be used by brides as a bridal braid. Halo braids go great with fun hair accessories like intertwining ribbons, flowers and other braid decorations.
For it to look perfect, it must be made sure that it is done on medium or long hair. And it is not even hard to learn and with a few trials you can master this wonderful art. Glamzzle is here to save the day and I will help you into learning how to make this beautiful hair style and impress your friends and family. Pick up your pins, pony and comb and let’s get started!!!
Step # 1: Detangle The Hair Before Making a Hair Braid
Detangle your hair with some wide toothed comb. Remember to dampen your hair with the help of a spray bottle as braid lasts longer for damp hair. Also, use some little mousse or hair gel so that your braid hair style stays put.
Step # 2: Learning How to Braid can be Frustrating
Now take the comb and part your hair from the front (ear to ear) to keep your braid centered. Now part hair from the back as well and spread it and spread it on either sides, each half over respective shoulder. Now you can braid it inside out (Dutch style) or the popular French Style.
Step # 3: Start With the French Halo Braid
Begin the hair braid from the neck side and start going up like a French Braid. Pull each section into the layer that you pull on top another layer to get all your hair in the braid. This will take some practice. But this hairstyle is worth it so just keep practicing.
Step # 4: Keep Going
Keep braiding down the other side of your head and make sure that the sections of hair are large for the halo to look visible and good. You can fix small mistakes with a crochet hook, bobby pin or hair pin.
Step # 5: The Halo Braid is Almost Complete
Work all the way around the head and back to the front section and continue to braid hair all the way to the ends.
Step # 6: How to Braid a Halo
Tuck the tail that is left at the end of your braid into the underside of the halo and secure it with a large bobby pin. You can also use some hair accessory to cover this area with a little style.
Voila!!! Your Halo braid is all done and you look fantastic. Don’t worry even if you didn’t get it the first time you can always ‘Try, Try Again.’ For those of you who still do not understand the procedure I have found a Youtube tutorial by Lauren and she will teach you how to make this sexy style without a hitch in the video below.
Happy Braiding Gals!!!
