How to do the two faux butterfly braids.
These braids are a quick and easy protective style to do. This butterfly braids can also be done on natural hair or even on a relaxed hair. Some people call them feed-in braids. However, when you are done braiding it, you have to pull the hair extension so that it is fluffy. Some people even call this braid the mermaid braid. With hair extensions for 5 bucks, bobby pins, and some jam, thread and needle, you can achieve this look under ten good minutes. I love this hair style because it is so cheap.
To achieve these two quick and easy butterfly braids, you do not need to be so perfect at doing feed-in cornrows.
First of all, you will need to do the following:
- Braid your hair extension of choice into a loose box braid, then fluff it out to give it some thickness. Braid the other bag completely and keep on the side.
- Start by creating an off-center part with a rat-tail comb. In my case, I made my part on the left, so that everything falls to the right. This two butterfly braid is made up of two large braids on each side of your head that feed into one single braid in the back of your head.
- Once you create the off-center part, apply jam, and cornrow your natural hair without any hair extension.
- Take a bobby pin, and attach the beginning of the braid with it, then sew your braided hair extension on it, and then bring the two faux braided hair extensions together once you reach the nape of your neck, and crisscross sew them down, and you are good to go.
That’s why I made this video for you.
