How to do a faux halo braid

I do not like braiding, because I know it hurts whenever someone does my hair. I always decide to go for easy, and simple things. I have had a lot of compliments when i wear this faux halo goddess braids. I have also had some requests on how to do it. Finally, here is the tutorial, and pictorial as well.

In this blog post, I will explain to you how you can get a halo braid. Now, you maybe giving excuses that you do not know how to braid or do cornrows. I gotchu. Furthermore, if your hair is too short, you can still achieve this look by doing a faux halo braid bun which is the reason for this tutorial. This style will take you less than 15 minutes to achieve this look, and it is so budget friendly.

Faux comes from a French word meaning fake,or unreal. So, this halo braid is a fake halo braid. Traditionally, you would need to actually braid your natural hair into one big cornrow around the perimeter of your hair, if it is long enough, or you could add little hair extension into it, if you want it to be very big. In this tutorial/ pictorial, I will show you how to achieve the look.

What you need for the halo braid:

  • Hair (styling) gel (I am using jam)
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair extension of choice (I am using expressions)
  • A comb
  • Hair brush

What you have to do to get the perfect halo braids:

  • Make sure that your hair is clean to start off with.
  • Apply hair oil on your hair.
  • If you want a middle part, make a line half way to the middle, and lay it down with your gel. I used jam.

  • Use a rubber band to secure the hair down into a low bun
  • Furthermore, braid your hair extension, and tie the tip with a rubber band.
