We start with a fairly simple tutorial:making several braids (the legendary Lagertha hairstyle). Here, rather than starting with a very elaborate model of Viking hairstyle, we suggest you make 5 braids . One voluminous one that starts at the top of the head and ends at the back of your hair, and two on each side of the head.

A few tips before you start:

  • Avoid doing this hairstyle the day you wash your hair, the braids will hold better for a few days or the day after washing;
  • Apply a texturizing spray to your hair to prep your hair for styling.

For the hairstyle:

  • Isolate the strands of hair that will be used to make your five braids with pliers in order to separate them from the rest of the hair;
  • Make a braid on each side of the face, taking care to twist the locks for a more beautiful effect (these first two braids must be symmetrical and fall just behind the ear on the length of the hair down);
  • Then make two more braids a little higher (spiky braid, classic braid, snake braid), start with something you already know; Of course, if you know how to do African braids quickly, the result will be even more stunning than with twisted braids;
  • For the braid that starts at the top of the head, you should make an African braid. For those who do not have long hair, it is possible to tie the end of the braid in a bun or bun.
  • Lightly backcomb the ends and apply some hairspray or setting spray.
