GIVEAWAY: Recreate Your Own Merged Braid And Win!

GIVEAWAY: Recreate Your Own Merged Braid And Win!

I’ve teamed up with Refinery 29 and Regency Beauty Institute for a weekly beauty challenge with some pretty amazing prizes. This week’s challenge is the merged braid.

Here’s how I created my look:

Note: If you’re a braiding novice, don’t worry, this style can be achieved easily without ever french braiding!
1. Working from a center of side part, take your bangs area, pull them to the right and braid. Secure the bottom with a rubber band.
2. Split your hair into pigtails. Take the left section of hair and braid. Secure with a rubber band.
3. Pull the braided left pigtail behind your head and over to the braided bang section and the unbraided right side of the pigtail.
4. Braid it all together into a side braid.
5. About mid braid you will notice that the rubber band from the left pigtail braid will budge through. Feel free to remover the rubber band and continue braiding.
6. Secure the merged braid and voila! – Easy as that, you have a gorgeous 3 braided ‘do.

Now it’s your turn!
