Hairstyles with voluminous braids have been popular for several seasons, and it is safe to say that they will be relevant for a long time to come. After all, such weaving is suitable for a celebration, for example, a wedding ceremony, and for an everyday look.
Before creating this hairstyle, you need to wash and dry your hair thoroughly. If necessary, it is worth using liquid silk, because easy division into strands is an indispensable condition for the correct weaving of a Greek braid. Before starting work, you need to make a side parting. At the same time, it is important to take into account the direction of hair growth, if the hairstyle is done on yourself, you should also practice and understand which hand is more convenient to intercept the strands, for example, it will be more convenient for right-handers to weave a pigtail to the left. A smaller part of the hair from the parting can be fixed with an invisibility or a hair clip at the temple.
The closer the parting is to the ear, the more prominent the hairstyle will be. Thanks to this, the scythe will create a kind of crown on the crown.
In general, weaving a braid in the Greek style is very similar to doing the usual "reverse dragon". The only difference is that the work begins at the side parting and the hair is given additional volume and deliberate negligence. Therefore, the ability to braid a French braid and its varieties will be very useful.
Step-by-step weaving of a Greek braid
First, you need to select some hair in the parting and divide them into three equal parts. The first two times, you just need to throw the curls on the right and left to the center and pull them up with your hands so that the central strand is always on top. Then side hair is added to the braiding. To do this, at the next establishment of a working strand under the central one, a thin curl is separated from the hairline (or from the crown) with a finger and added to the weaving process.
It is important to slightly tighten the pigtail so that its curves are smooth and beautiful. At the same time, using the width of the strand, you can adjust the direction of weaving, from the hairline it is worth grabbing more voluminous ones, and thinner from the crown, so the braid will correctly lie around the head. When it is conveniently located at the shoulder on the side where the parting is made, it is necessary to put loose hair into work. You need to finish the braid with a simple weaving in three strands and secure with an elastic band.
Sometimes a Greek braid is weaved without adding strands from the crown, the hair of the upper part of the head in this case is simply combed and added to the crown of the ponytail.
For a Greek hairstyle to look luxurious, you need to add volume to the braid. It is important to do this work in stages, that is, every two or three throws of working strands. To create a voluminous braid, you need to fix three strands in one hand, and gently pull the weaves towards you with your fingers with the other. It is important that they remain proportionate both at the top of the hairstyle and at the bottom. And to create deliberate negligence and give the image lightness, you can completely pull out thin strands from the braid.
