ghd technique:
BUTTERFLY BRAID

Go all out with your next braid hairstyle with the ghd butterfly braid. 

Be as free as butterfly when it comes to your next braid hairstyle. This uber-cool look is the epitome of braiding hair – plenty of up-and-overs all looped together to create an enviable hairstyle. Rather than having a braided hairstyle that runs through to your hair ends, opt for a chic braid-pony combo and tie your hair into a sleek ponytail at your nape.

Perfect for a day in the office or a night on the town, get a braid hairstyle that’s as versatile as they come with the butterfly braid – brought to you by ghd technique. 


Here’s how to create a butterfly braid


1. Split hair into two sections

2. Take hair from the left and pass it under and over the two sections

3. Add more hair from the right and pass it under and over the sections

4. Continue to nape and add hair after passing each over & under

5. Secure ponytail and embellish  


step one: Split hair into two sections

Starting at the crown, split the hair to create two equal sections.

step two: Take hair from the left and pass it under and over the two sections

Taking the section of hair from the left-hand side of your head, pass it underneath the right-hand section and then take it over the two sections of formerly created sections.

step three: Add more hair from the right and pass it under and over the sections

Then, take hair from the right-hand side of your head, pass it underneath and then over the created sections.

step four: Continue to nape and add hair after passing each over & under

Repeat steps three and four until you reach the nape of the neck. Every time you pass a section over and underneath, be sure to add in more hair from the sides.

TOP TIP: For a more graphic finish to your braid, always keep it as tight as possible.

step five: Secure ponytail and embellish 

To finish, secure the braided hair with a hair band then add an embellishment to highlight the butterfly braid
