    Separate hair into front and back. Collect the back in the tail so as not to interfere. Start weaving with a thin lock over the ear and from the front of the hair weave a twisted French braid.

From the near half, starting from the side, braid a voluminous Danish braid (inverted French), braid it to the tip with an ordinary pigtail and tie it. Do the same with the far half, stabbed earlier. Fluff the pigtails and mask their ends under the mass of hair left behind.

  1. Volumetric Danish braid-flange on one side:

    The weaving technique is the same as with two Danish braids, only the strand does not need to be divided in half, but immediately braid one volumetric braid-rim.
  1. Twisted braid bezel:
    Separate the front of the hair. Take a thin strand from the parting, divide into two halves and twist them with each other. From the free hair left in front, grab another strand and twist it from one of the halves of the first strand. Next, the resulting flagellum is twisted with the second half of the first lock, only you need to twist in the opposite direction.

Weaving a braid-rim from small tails (from elastic bands)

    As with weaving any rim, you need to divide the hair into those from which the braid will be braided and those that remain loose. Divide the part for weaving into small locks, making a ponytail out of each with the help of silicone rubber in the color of the hair. Moving around the head, braid a braid of elastic bands - divide the first tail in half, draw between the halves of the second, and tie the ends of the first with the next tail, split in half the tail that was now the first and draw the next between its halves and so on until it ends tails. Fix the tip of the braid from the gum under the remaining hair (you can invisible or tied with a rubber band to a thin strand of loose hair). Spread the braid-rim by stretching the segments.

Pull locks sequentially into each segment of the braid along the forehead. Having reached the temple, hide the remaining tip of the braid under her loose hair and stab. To straighten a hairdress.

All of the options for the braid-rim described above can be used not only with loose hair, but also with a tail, bun or any other styling.
