I last showed a rope braid tutorial over the summer (you can find it here and also watch a video on my Instagram story highlights here)! I had a few requests to showcase more braid tutorials, so today I thought I would share how to do a snake braid. A snake braid is a really funky and interesting looking braid, and it is hands down one of the easiest braids that you can do. Here’s how to do it with a step by step guide, and I’m also showing a video in on my Instagram stories today too:
Step one: Take three pieces of your hair in the front, and start to do a regular braid until you reach the end.
Step two: Once you’ve braided your hair, you want to end your braid with the piece of hair on the right side of your braid placed over the top (this placement is key). Once you have this placement, you will then just push the braid up with your fingers all the way to the top where you began the braid.
Step three: Once you’ve pushed it all the way to the stop you can start loosing it up a little bit until it looks like the photos below.
Step four: Secure your braid with two crossed bobby pins.
