Hey guys! For today’s hair tutorial, I will show you how to do a Zipper Braid / Suspended Infinity Braid on yourself. There are many braiding techniques that you can use to get this “zipper” design and this one is the easiest if you’re doing it on yourself. ^_^ Like this post for more easy or braided hairstyles and keep the requests coming!
Zipper Braid / Suspended Infinity Braid Hair Tutorial
Time Requirement: 10 mins
Skill Level: Medium
Hair Type: Straight or Wavy
Hair Length: Medium to long hair
Occasion: School and work but you can dress it up for Proms, weddings, bridal, graduation, etc because it’s a nice detail for an updos.
Note: Since you have to keep your hair in your mouth to do this on yourself, you will need medium to long hair for this braided hairstyle. If you noticed in the video, my hair is shorter! I got 5 inches cut off at base and 10 inches off the shortest layers. I initially wanted 3-5 inches off but my hairstylist & friend ended up cutting more. Typical. lol ^_^” I’m happy with it though and I’ll show you how to dye it lighter in my upcoming video. Stick around. 🙂
This braided hairstyle can be done on straight or wavy hair. You can wear it casually to work and school or even dress is up for prom and weddings! Just curl the ponytail and add some volume to the crown of your head. It works best on medium to long hair and if you have short hair, you can always wear clip-in hair extensions.
