Hair Tutorial: Braid in the Undone Look

Hair Tutorial: Messy Braid

Simply effective! The classic braid deserves a new look – and is now presented from its best side. Anything other than one-sided, since the braid appears ultra-modern with undone styling. We show you step by step how to create the trend braid:

  • Hair Tutorial: Messy Braid

    Step 1

    After washing, put your hair to one side. Right or left? You decide.

    Step 2

    Start by blow drying while kneading the lengths with your fingers to create a natural wavy look.

    Step 3

    Then brush the hair strictly to the side while blow drying, against the growth direction. This ensures volume at the hairline.

    Step 4

    Now the hair is prepared with the curling iron for extra volume and grip in the braid. Curl strand after strand from top to bottom. PS: Don’t forget to apply heat protectant first!

    Step 5

    For a natural look, allow the freshly twisted curls to cool and brush them out.

    Step 6

    Distribute volumising powder at the hairline and part the hair into three equal strands – starting low – to create a classic braid.

    Braid the hair all the way to the end – really loose.

    Fasten the end of the braid with a thin hair elastic (ideally transparent or in the hair colour).
