Spit: step by step
The essence of braid weaving consists in dividing the hair into separate neat strands of equal size, which are then crossed together in a certain sequence. Usually they use from three to five strands, although in complex techniques there are more. Consider the step-by-step creation of classic types of braids, which serve as the basis for other hairstyles.
Simple Russian braid
Hair should be carefully combed and divided into three identical parts. Then they are intertwined as follows: the right strand is turned between the left and middle, and the left strand is placed between the middle and right. Alternation is continued until the desired length is reached. Having finished weaving, the end of the braid is tied with a tight elastic band.
Simple Russian braid is familiar to all girls since childhood and forms the basis of many complex hairstyles.
Note!In order for the spit to keep its shape and not to be tattered, it is important to hold the strands with a slight tension when weaving.
