Earlier hairstyle "spikelet" is now back in fashion. Over the past 10 years, she was a little forgotten, and the place of the championship was taken by more free compositions. But today, modern fashionistas are weaving the spikelet again, using it in various variations. And if earlier preference was given to tight weaving, now slight negligence is welcomed.
When weaving a spikelet, beginners often encounter various problems. For example, the formation of the so-called "roosters", consisting of separate strands protruding from the pigtail. If you adhere to some recommendations, the process of weaving a spikelet will become easier.
In order to learn how to weave a spikelet and avoid basic mistakes, you should listen to the following tips:
- to create a fashionable, slightly loose braid, you need to use larger strands and cross them relatively rarely,
- to avoid the appearance of “cocks”, it is worth combing each strand before weaving into the braid, and then gently pulling it,
- if you spray your head with water a little before creating a hairstyle, weaving a spikelet will be much easier
- before learning how to weave a spikelet to yourself, it’s advisable to practice on another person for a while,
- if you want the spikelet to be in the middle, you should use strands of equal thickness to weave it,
- if roosters "nevertheless formed, you can remove them with a comb with small teeth.
On a note! From thin locks it turns out a small and elegant pigtail. Large strands are used for weaving volumetric braids.
The hairstyle can be decorated with beautiful hairpins, a rim, hairpins and other accessories. They will not only change the appearance for the better, but also help to fix individual details.
We start weaving from the forehead: grab a small lock at the base of hair growth, divide it into three parts. We throw the leftmost one through the central one - now it will be in the middle, and the base will shift sideways and lie in the left hand. We do the same with the right curl - after the transfer, it becomes the main one, and the center goes to the right. So far, everything is extremely simple.
Then we begin to weave: on each side, respectively, we tidy up an additional strand, picking up from the sides. We do it lower and lower, moving along the head along the crown of the head, neck, to the neck. If the hair is well combed in advance, in the future you can use only your fingers. When all the curls are pulled together from the sides in a spikelet, we switch to weaving the usual three-strand braid. At the bottom, the whole structure is pulled together with an elastic band (if desired, it is tucked up and fixed with studs).
Having mastered the basics of the weaving technique, it is easy to learn how to make a hairstyle for yourself - it takes a little time to create a masterpiece, and the result looks stylish and elegant. It is suitable for office dress code, and for a romantic date.
How to weave a French braid "vice versa"?
The “twisted” weaving is technically not very different from the ordinary spikelet. Also, first you need to make a base of the three upper strands, to which additional curls from the sides are subsequently braided. The peculiarity is only that the tufts of hair are not placed on top of the base, but tucked under it from below.
So, we have three curls in our fingers. Raising the central one, we bring the leftmost one from below, we intercept it with our right hand, we fix it - now it is our foundation. Similarly (from below, under the oblique) we draw the overlap of the opposite strand through the center to the left. Having completed this initial manipulation, you can begin to weave the side hair.
We do it like this: hold the base with the index finger and thumb of the right hand, and bring the left hand under the freely curling left curl. Separate part of the hair from the corresponding side and add it to the middle strand. Change hands - fix the base of the spikelet with the left brush. We take the middle and right strand with the right fingers, twist. Clamp. We grab part of the hair on the right and add it again to the central bundle, stretching it under the extreme curl.
In order for the “twisted” braid to be neat, the curls should be ironed well. This hairstyle is more complicated, so the main thing here is not to rush. Having completed the process, we fix the product with a hairpin or rubber band. If you want to add volume, you can pull out a little tight loop of hair (this is done in the direction from bottom to top).
Initially, we divide the hair with a middle part. We twist one part of the head of hair and fix it so that it does not interfere in the process, but with the second we begin to work. From the parting we take the middle curl, which we break into three thin beams. We begin to weave a classic spikelet: the first turn is airy, but on the second you should pick up hair and add it to the right and left locks. The braid must be placed diagonally so that it is as if "hugging" the head from the side.
Having finished with one half, we fix the first spikelet at the bottom and go to the second - we act in the same way. Ready weaving can be loosened so that the hairstyle looks more voluminous. The hanging ends of the braids are wound on the back of the head, folded into a “basket” and pinned by hairpins. All the fallen locks should be tightened with a curling iron or ironing. It turns out very romantic!
Spider Web or Hair Crown
For a hairstyle, you need to take a voluminous hair bundle as the basis - for this purpose a circular parting is done, separating approximately half of the hair. This part is twisted into a tail (strictly on the crown). Directly weaving start from the bottom. So that the side curls do not interfere, it is better to temporarily pin them with clamps. The tail should also be divided into two parts - the upper one (for now, to rest on the crown) and the lower one (we will work with it in the first place).
Having taken a bundle of lower hair, we divide it into two halves, add the third curl from the hanging tail. Weave the usual three-strand spikelet. From the second turn we begin to make pickups (to the right - from hanging hair, and to the left - from selected ones). We work until the lower hair ends. After we move on to the second half of the hair, we gradually add strands to the weaving from the sides and from the forehead, as well as from the upper part of the tail. It turns out that the spikelet goes in a circle.
It is of the utmost importance to "pinch off" the curls evenly, to iron them well and not to allow unnecessary torsions - especially in the area of the front part. When the circle is completely completed, we weave the remaining hair into a freely hanging spikelet, for the volume we slightly stretch the loops out. We tie an elastic band and hide the tip inside the hairstyle. We close possible gaps, fixing the "crown" with hairpins.
How to braid an asymmetric spikelet?
We make a side parting. If it passes closer to the right temple, then we will weave the braid in the left direction. Accordingly, all hair (well-combed) is thrown onto the left side. The first strand is taken from the parting, it, as in the classic version, is divided into three parts. We begin to weave "spikelet on the contrary" (each time we turn the side curls under the central base).
From the second turn we connect the grips from the forehead and from the main part of the hair. When the spikelet has fallen to the ear region, it is advisable to start picking up additional locks evenly from all areas, including distant ones, from the right temple or from below. We tie the tip with an elastic band, weaken the loops, fix the hairdo with varnish.
Train, do not doubt your strength and always be the most charming! And in order not to stop at the achieved results (mastering the above techniques), try to collect a fishtail from your hair. This is a beautiful braid, braided from two strands. The hairstyle is suitable for a walk, a romantic date, and even for the image of the bride!
