TUTORIAL: How To Add Beads To Braids

I get a lot of people asking me how to add beads to the ends of braids, so I thought I would just do a quick photo tutorial for those of you still learning.  

You are definitely going to want to purchase a beader, it makes the process a lot easier and quicker. You can find one at any beauty supply store. This is what it looks like… 





Step 1: Add your beads to the beader in any color/pattern you like. 

Step 2: Take the end of the braid and slip it through the opening of the beader, slide the beads upward onto the braid. (sorry, forgot to take a pic of this step! But I’m sure you get the idea..)





Step 3: Loop the very end of the hair around the last bead.



Step 4: Wrap the rubber band around the hair just above the last bead. You may need to slide the band upward a bit so the remaining beads will slide over it easily. 



Step 5: Slide the rest of the beads over the rubber band and you’re finished!

  2. Very nice tutorial! Beaders are great, it is so hard to bead hair by hand especially with ends that are curling all over the place!
