A Complete guide on How to Braid Hair

Are you ready to learn how to braid hair?

I’ve been doing cornrow styles for about three years (give or take) and I’ve been wanting to do this tutorial for a while now.

When I look at my first couple of cornrow hairstyles and compare them to the cornrow hair designs that I can do now, I feel very proud because there is such a difference!

Stick with it, push yourself, pace yourself, and you’ll have this down within a few weeks easily!


So many style options out there!!!

After I’ve parted, moisturized, and sealed with a holding product, I go ahead and start cornrowing. I pull out a small section, section it into three small pieces and then start the process…
