Mermaid Braids

An Autumn favourite

This braid is a little different because it isn't a french braid and makes the bottom of the braid thicker rather than it just being a regular three strand braid which is how a french braid ends.
I would wear this in the autumn because it takes bits from the front of the hair which is where you will have natural high lights from the summer.
It is good for the colder seasons because it keeps your neck warm and doesn't take too many layers off your head. Colder seasons are usually when it is most windy and because this takes hair from the front of the head they won't be flying around in the wind and getting in your eyes.

How to:

1. Take a small section of hair from the top of your head (not a whole layer, only a little bit).
2. Do one 'stitch' then add in a bit of hair taken right from the front of your head unless you are leaving you fringe out in which case take it from just behind your fringe.
3. Continue taking hair from the front on both sides. Do not pick up a whole layer because that will make it into a french braid which isn't what you want.
