10+ Latest Layer Braids Ideas You Have to Try

Braid your hair with this simple tutorial for a polished look. If you are looking for an easy hairstyle that will make you look stylish stylishly effortless, then try out these layer braids. All you need is time for a little bit of practice and patience to get the hang of it!

Layering is important for many hairstyles because it helps you to create the illusion of more hair than what you actually have. By dividing your hair into sections, each layer has its own body and texture. It also gives your hair a thicker appearance. You can layer your hair from all angles, depending on the look that you want to achieve!

1. Divide your hair into manageable sections with clips or rubber bands.

2. Pick up one section of hair with a comb or brush at the root and divide it.

3. Twist the hair in one direction and secure it with an elastic band at the top of your head.

4. Secure another section of hair, twist it, and secure again to the first section so that you create a braid from each side that gradually tapers towards the ends.

5. Continue to make braid sections from each side until you’ve reached your desired length. Secure the last section to the final one with a hair tie.

6. Take out the elastic bands and shake your hair to remove tangles, and add volume from root to end.

7. For added style, take a flat iron or a curling iron on a low setting and slowly go through each section of your braid. This will give your hair a wavy texture.

8. Use a lightweight product and spray it into your hair for extra shine, if desired.

9. Finish with a simple blow-dry, and you’re done!

Braiding your hair can be the perfect way to keep it tidy and off of your neck on a hot summer day. These 2 layer braids are not only easy to do, they’re also some of the prettiest you’ll ever see! Get ready for compliments when you try these today. You’ll be showing them off in no time.

You will need a brush and a strong hair tie to complete these 2 layer braids, and you can use any braid pattern that you feel comfortable with.

If you are right handed begin on the right side of your hear, showing off your work to the back as often as possible. If you’re left handed start on the left side of your head.

Begin by brushing the hair back and to the side. You want it to be smooth and flat so that the braid will look nice. To start the braid, bring a small section of hair from both sides over your head. The first two pictures show how it should begin.

Take these sections of hair and wrap them around each other, crossing them under your head on the same side. While you’re crossing them over each other, make sure that they line up at their ends so that they’re even with one another. You’re basically going from side to side but from the same base.

When you’ve got it all twisted around each other, grab what’s left of the original section on one side and continue wrapping it over your head like you just braid. Congratulations! You now have two braids on one side of your head. Repeat this pattern on the other side, making sure that you make a “bobby pin” twist when you wrap the hair around each time to prevent any tangles in your hair at the end.

If you have a long braid and want to make it look like there’s several braids on one side, grab a few sections of hair from the middle of the braid, put them between your fingers and twist them through the braid, giving you an extra bump to hold all your lovely 2 layer braids together.

When you’ve reached the end of your 2 layer braids all that’s left to do is tie it off with a stylish hair tie.

These 2 layer braids are perfect for anyone with long hair. The best part is that they’re a great way to show off your talent while looking stylish and gorgeous at the same time. Try these today.

3 layer braids

Do you like to rock your hair in all the latest cute styles? Do you love to wear it in braids? Well, here are 3 great braid hairstyles that will work for any occasion!

The first braid hairstyle is one of my favorites. It’s known as 3 layer braids. All you need to do is make three sections of your hair and start braiding! When it’s done, use small pieces of hair from each side and tie with a small elastic band. Very simple, but sophisticated and cute.

I hope you like this one! Next is the two-level braid. This style is just a regular French braid with two sections instead of one! Then you take each section and braid, then tie them together to make a thicker braid.

First I’ll show you how to do a regular French Braid, and then I’ll show you how to make it into Two-Level braids! Okay, so first put all your hair into a high ponytail.

Then split it into two hairs. We’ll call these two sections Side A and Side B. Once you have them separated, put the right side into a regular three-strand braid. Then you do the same with the left side but make it into a regular three-strand braid on top of the other one. So basically, you have two braids going at once! Now just tie the ends together to finish off your Two-Level Braid! I hope you like this one. It will look great for a dressy occasion!

For the final braid hairstyle, I’ll show you, we’re going to do a French Braid waterfall. Start by putting your hair into a ponytail. Then part it in two (just like you did for Two-Level braids). Make it into a regular three-strand braid and tie off each end with an elastic band. Then, take the loose pieces of hair that are hanging down and put them into the braid. It will cover the elastic bands and make it look like a waterfall! It takes some practice, but you’ll get it in no time.

Tribal Layer Braids: How to Rock This Trend
There is just something so cool about braids, and we can’t help but rock this trend. It’s about time to mix things up and adorn your hair with something you have never tried. Tribal braids are a type of braid that has many variations. Each variation is based on hair texture and length, as well as the desired style. A great place to start is here with a step by step tutorial.

Step 1: Creating the base part
Start by parting your hair on either side of your part, creating two triangular shapes. Secure both pieces down using bobby pins, making sure they are close to the scalp. This forms the base of the braid.

Step 2: Starting the braids
Once you have your base, take a small section from one side of your part and begin to french braid. If you aren’t familiar with the technique, read this for help. At this point, you can choose what variation of the braid you would like to complete. To give more volume and texture to your hair, choose a tighter look by using thicker sectioning throughout the braiding process. For a smoother look, use thinner sections.

Step 3: Finishing the braids
Once you have reached the other side of your hair, secure it with a small elastic band. Remove the base bobby pins and add more bobby pins to secure your braid in place.

Step 4: Decorating the braid
If you want a more “distressed” look, go ahead and use a hairdryer to blow your hair strands out. Give yourself a messy braid and finish styling.

Step 5: Adding texture
The next step is to create texture or the “weave”. This technique involves using two sections of your hair in the same direction, pointing one side down (See arrow). Make sure you take small sections along the way so that it isn’t too obvious. Secure the two sections with an elastic band.

Step 6: Completing the weave
Take your next section of hair and add it to the piece you secured in step 5. Secure that piece with a small elastic band, making sure you tie a knot and cut off any excess. This creates a shaggy, textured look. Finish this look by styling with a hairdryer, giving yourself some volume and texture all around.

Step 7: Adding body
If you would like to add additional volume and body to your braid, use your fingers to gently push the hair in front of the elastic band. This will help to create a fuller, more voluminous look. At this point, you should also add some products for added hold. The author uses Big Sexy Hair products, but this is a matter of preference.

Step 8: Adding shine
For some extra shine, spray some hairspray over the hair in front of the elastic bands. This will create a glossy effect while adding some hold.

Step 9: Enjoying your new look
Once you have completed your look, enjoy it by wearing it out! The braid can be worn down or up with different variations and twists. Here are some sample styling options:

“Weave Over” Take one section of hair from the base and braid it over the front. Secure with an elastic band. Wrap a small piece of hair around so you can secure both sections together. If desired, add a few bobby pins to make it more secure.

“Up And Over” Take one section of hair from the base and braid it over the front until it reaches your part. Secure with an elastic band by tying a knot, then cut off any excess using scissors. Wrap a small piece of hair around so you can secure both sections together. If desired, add a few bobby pins to make it more secure.

“Textured Braid” Once you have reached the other side of your hair, secure it with a small elastic band. Remove the base bobby pins and add more bobby pins to secure your braid in place. You can choose to add texture by using two sections of hair in the same direction pointing one side down.
