About the Expert
Hi, I'm Aisha, and I'm a natural hairstylist. There are so many hairstyles out there to choose from, and braided hairstyles can be the most intricate and stylish to choose from. However, they take the most time to do. Especially if your date is going to be in 15 minutes. So, I'm going to show you some tips on how to braid faster. First, choose a hairstyle that I'm comfortable doing or you've practiced. Second, use a leave-in conditioner of your choice, or a spray bottle filled with water to keep the hair together as you style it. A paddle brush to smooth it out after you've sprayed it. And then use your finger tips and create a rhythm as you braid. It allows you to not have your fingers getting caught between the braid to slow you down. And as you can see, I'm also just using my index and thumb to go down. Voila. I'm Aisha, and these are tips on braiding faster.
