Braided hairstyles have been all the rage as they are a chic and stylish look to flaunt with just about any outfit! From fishtail braids, regular 3-strand braids, braided up-dos, and now the ELASTIC BRAID – there are SO many variations to achieve using this classy style. This also makes for a killer NYE look – here’s how to get it!


  • Small clear hair elastics
  • Pomade/styling Gel
  • Brush
  • Teasing comb
  • Hair shimmer {optional}


  1. Begin by brushing out hair thoroughly to ensure there are no tangles. Next, apply a light dollop of pomade or styling gel to the crown area of your head and begin brushing back the hair in front, to created a ‘slicked back’ appearance. Smooth it out further using a fine-toothed teasing comb.
  2. To begin braiding, take two symmetrical 1-inch ribbons of hair (beginning from just above the ear) and group together in an elastic. 
  3. Next, using the hair below the elastic divide into two sections and make a figure 8 pattern on each side.
  4. Repeat the process all the way down the head until finished!

This is such a unique look since using elastics allows you to create unusual pattern that cannot be create with braiding alone! 

I believe we’ve started a new Era with hairstyling {more specifically braiding and updos} with astonishing creativity since we now view elastics as a styling tool!  – By: Frank @TazHair
