If you just searched for “hair wraps” on Google or any other search engine, you are probably wondering how you can wrap a section of your hair with colorful threads. Well, don’t you worry because, in this article, Surfers Paradise Hair Wraps and Braiding are going to teach you the basics of doing hair wraps?
Separate the section of hair that you want to be wrapped by tying the surrounding hair away from it with rubber bands or clips. Once this is done, take your embroidery floss and cut them to the desired length. One strand should at least be twice as long as the hair so you won’t have a problem wrapping the string around the hair.
Once you are done cutting the strings, smooth them with a rubber band so that they are even. Tie one end of the strings to the rubber band. Next, take the rubber band with the strings and tie it around the hair, tie it as close as can be to the scalp without making the owner of the hair uncomfortable.
Select a color and then wrap it around the entire length of the hair. This will be the base wrap on which all the other colors will be wrapped around on. Cover the hair completely and make sure that you are tying towards a downward angle. Pick the next color. Wrap it around the base color. Take care to wrap the string at a slightly upward angle so it does not fall off. Next, choose the next color. Start wrapping above where the previous color ends. Do the same for all the other colors. Once you are all done, band the end and trim it.
