Hair Tutorial–How To Braid Your Layered Hair


It is possible that you once encountered the situation where you found it difficult to copy your desired hair look because you have layers, especially when braids are the styles that you want. When braiding your layered hair, you may find that some strands keep poking out, making the braid irregularly messy.

The three tips below may be of assistance when it comes to settling this matter.

How To Braid Your Layered Hair

  • Select styles suitable for layered hair.

It is highly suggested that you start braiding your hair from the position above your shortest layer in your hair. Your shortest layer can stick to your braid well if it can reach the plait.

For those who have many layers in hair, fishtail braids may be fantastic. Personally speaking, fishtail braids look pretty even being a little messy. Thus, it doesn’t matter to me if there is a few ends poking out of my braids. But for a Dutch braid or French braid, a neat finish is better.

  • Curl your hair ends before braiding

What if your straight layers keep poking straight out? Curl them into your hairstyle.

Curl the ends of your hair before braiding or styling any updos can make the styles more stunning. By means of curling, you can have layers that blend into your braids rather than poking out.

Curl the ends of your hair using a curling wand or styler. A hairdryer and a small, round brush can be also effective if you can not find a curling wand or styler.

  • Manage your hairstyle using hairspray and bobby pins.

If you have layered hair, and you are going to braid your hair, you must need hairspray and even bobby pins if you want to tidy it up, because there are always a few ends poking out of your braids.

To tidy up your hair look, firstly you can stretch your braid gently and then tuck loose ends in. After that, apply a little hairspray to hold the loose ends in place.

In case that hairspray is not effective enough to hold all the loose ends, take a bobby pins and hook the ends into the pin. To hide the pin, push it in along the length of your braid.

How To Wake Up With Pretty Curls


As it is getting warmer and warmer gradually, going out with damp hair tends to be a good idea seemingly. Therefore, it is time for us to look for ways of waking up with perfect hair looks, by which we can start the day with our best hair. But, how to do that?

  • If you have curly hair, and you are tired of spending lots of time on managing your hair in the morning, you can take this tip into consideration. Spritz with a flexible hairspray, such as the Moroccan Oil medium hold hairspray, and then twist and secured your curls into two buns the night before. Shake the buns out the next morning and apply some shine spray to tame flyaways.


  • In terms of the complaint of not getting up with uniform curls, here is a piece of good advice given by celebrity stylist Keith Campbell. According to Campbell, applying some mousse to your hair the night before can achieve stunning result. “To enhance the natural texture of your hair, you can apply mousse to your hair at night, like Jonathan Product Infinite Volume Thickening Foam. Section your hair into one inch pieces and double strand twist it or you can do braids,” said Campbell. Keep the style overnight, and then you can get natural curls in the morning. To keep the style, spray with Jonathan Product Finish Control Hairspray.


  • Nighttime shampoo is advised by stylist Dani Hauflaire from renowned Maxine Salon. Besides, she also suggested pin-curling hair loosely starting at the ends or the mid shaft, and then rolling upwards towards your scalp in a pinwheel motion.
  • To get naturally wavy hair, start with wet hair and a texturizing spray like TIGI Catwalk’s Sea Salt spray. When your hair is dry partially, twist it into sections and diffuse. Finish with adding some hairspray to your loosened hair in the morning.


  • To get crimpy, textured curls, start with braiding your dry hair, applying a smoothing cream on the end, and a soft mousse all head. For more defined waves, create more and smaller braids. Looser waves and curls go with less and larger braids.
