The Chain Braid!


chain braid 1

From chunky rope braids to intricate fishtails, it seems everyone is reinventing the traditional, three-strand plait. And we’ve got the scoop on the next big trend: the chain braid. Perfect for the office or a night out, this woven style is super simple, but super chic! Mario Russo, of Boston’s Salon Mario Russo, shows us how to create this cool coif.

chain braid 21.     Beginning with day-old hair, curl hair using a 1-1/Ž2 inch curling iron, to add fullness to the braid. For even more volume, lightly tease tresses at the crown after curling.

2.     Part hair like you would for a half upsweep, pulling the top half up and back at the crown. Divide the top section in two, and tie the two pieces in a knot.

chain braid 43.     Continue knotting sections, adding hair into the knots like you would for a French braid. Keep knotting until you get to the end of the strand, and secure with an elastic.

chain braid 54.     Gently tug at the knots, loosening them to create a soft, textured look.

chain braid 65.     Spritz strands with a light working spray, such as Bumble & Bumble’s Does It All Styling Spray, to hold the braid in place, while maintaining an effortless finish.
