How to create an infinity braid
The first step in creating an infinity braid is to divide your ponytail into two parts. Take a small piece of hair and cross it over the first section. Now, take another small piece of hair and cross it over the second section counter clockwise. Repeat with the third strand. Repeat this process until you have created an infinity braid. You can then clip the third strand away from the second strand to give it a voluminous look.
While doing the infinity braid, be sure to use taut tension throughout the entire strand. If the strand is too tangled, it will not be as smooth as a clean braid. A blow dryer will also make the process easier. Also, braiding while blow-drying your hair is a great way to create a thicker braid. Make sure you use a sulfate-free shampoo and use a blow-dryer to get a smooth finish.
Gather the hair into a low ponytail. Split it down the middle. Hold one part with your right hand while the other is held by your left. Take a small section of your right side hair and cross it over the next right section. Continue to cross the strand over the two sections and weave it together into an infinity braid. Repeat the process until you have braided all your hair. You can add new hair to the middle section. Bring in more hair from above the ears.
Another fun and easy infinity braid is the half-up Dutch. This braid is perfect for casual days in the city or to a corporate office. It adds a feminine touch to an all-black corporate look and complements any outfit perfectly. You can also try a half-up Dutch infinity braid to dress up your everyday look. Once you master the half-up Dutch braid, you’ll be ready to try it on your hair!
Styles to wear with an infinity braid
Infinity braids can be tricky to pull off. The first step is to prep your hair. Use Oribe Foundation Mist and then a light layer of Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream at the ends. Next, section your hair into two sections. Wrap a small strand around each section in a Figure 8 motion. Repeat with remaining sections. In the end, tie each strand into a ponytail.
A low ponytail is one of the most common trends of the summer, but an infinity braid is a unique way to incorporate this style. It’s easy to do and adds a personal touch to the low ponytail trend. Beginners can also practice their infinity braiding skills by creating mini versions. For a more contrasting look, try wearing your hair with soft waves or curls. You’ll look surprisingly elegant in this new style.
The first step to a successful infinity braid is to separate your hair into two sections. The first two sections will be the base of your braid. Then, take a small piece from the left section to use as your “working piece.” This tiny piece will make the infinity symbol. Then, weave the working piece from the left section over the two main sections, under the right section and back out the other way. Repeat this process until you have an infinity braid.
Another infinity braid style is the Dutch infinity braid. This style can be worn at coffee shops or in the office. The half up Dutch infinity braid will add a feminine touch to your all-black corporate outfit. Whether you’re wearing a business suit or a summertime wedding dress, an infinity braid will match any look. And the braid can be worn with a variety of other styles, including updos and low buns.
Steps to creating an infinity braid
To create an infinity braid, start with a three-strand braid and split the middle section into front and back sections. Take a small strand from one section, cross it over your section, and then cross over the opposite section. Continue by adding small strands to the smaller spaces to form an infinity sign. Alternatively, you can use baby hair to frame the small sections to give your infinity braid a more chaotic look.
After making the first part, add a second small piece of hair and cross it over the third part. Repeat the process with the fourth and fifth sections. Secure the two pieces together using the other small piece. Then, braid the remaining hair above the infinity braid to create volume. Now, make sure the braid is taut and stays in place! The final step is to finish with stitches. You can also use an elastic band to release the hair that was held up by the clips.
Continue wrapping the third strand, until it reaches the middle. The braid will continue to expand as you add more hair. Next, use half of the left strand as your wrapping strand. Repeat steps 6-10 to form a diamond. The last step will complete the diamond braid. The infinity braid should now look like a diamond. In order to achieve a diamond shape, you must add more strands slowly.
Once you have made all three sections of your hair, you can now use the braid to add volume to any part of your hair. Half up Dutch infinity braids are a trendy way to add volume to your locks, while adding a feminine touch to your all-black corporate attire. Similarly, a half-up braid will compliment any outfit, enhancing your overall look. You can try this braid on any part of your head, using the same braiding technique used for other sections of your hair.
