Day 25 - Corset Braid
We are on to day 25 of the 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids.
 
Today’s style is the corset braid.  Some people also call it a laced ribbon braid or (criss crosssed ribbon braid) because you are taking ribbon and lacing it like a shoe or a corset.  This is a style that may take you out of your comfort zone, but I think you will love it once you try it.  I especially love it on my girls, it’s just such a sweet style.
 
Here are some tutorials to give you some ideas on how to style a corset braid.

The Technique

Ribbon Between Dutch Braids {Corset Braid} tutorial by Girly Do Hairstyles.  This looks darling ended in a messy bun like she’s done  here, but you can also carry the braids out longer and keep lacing them together until you get to the bottom of the two braids.

DIY Tutorial

DIY Corset Braid tutorial by Braidsandstyles12.  She teaches you how to do it on yourself, but you can easily translate this to do the style on someone else.  I prefer thicker ribbon like she has used here, but you can definitely use thinner ribbon, a strand of pearl ribbon, or even leather ribbon for a different look!

Additional Ways to Use the Technique

Corset Braided Heart tutorial by me.  I’ll admit that this isn’t one that I would wear myself – but I think it is just so darling on my girls.  And hearts are always sweet on little girls no matter what time of the year it is!

Ribbon Laced Side Braid Hairstyle tutorial by Princess Hairstyles.  This is a more subtle way to add a corset braid to your hairstyle.  I think that this would look cute on all ages!

Laced Ribbon Braid tutorial by me.  I have taken two 4 strand ribbon braids and laced them together for an adorable look.

Corset Braid Headband tutorial by Chikas Chic.  I know that I shared this on our headband braid day of the challenge, but I have to share again because it’s such a cute way to wear a corset braid!

Criss Cross Ribbon Hairstyle tutorial by Princess Hairstyles.  She shows you a great way to do this style on short hair and without even braiding!
