Braiding Courses Braiding hair can be tiring, but it doesn’t have to be. If you are tired of your hair always taking too long to braid or if you find yourself dreading the process, here are ten ways to make braiding hair faster and easier. French braids The French braid is one of the easiest braids to do. It’s also a good option for when you are in a hurry because it can be done in minutes. To start, use your fingers and divide your hair into three sections: the upper-left section, the upper-middle section, and the upper-right section. You will want to braid these three sections of hair. After you have braided all three sections, take the middle section and weave it up and over to make a ponytail with the upper-left section of hair that was not included in the braid. Then repeat this process on the other side by weaving in the left side’s unbraided section of hair. Once finished, roll up all three braids together at their roots. Secure with an elastic band or clip.
