Hi everyone. Today, I’m going to show you why you need to sleep in a braid.

These overnight braid curls are so easy to do and look absolutely gorgeous. So let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Hair brush
  • Blow dryer
  • Round brush (optional)
  • Hair elastic
Hair brush

1. Brush your freshly washed hair

Blow drying hair

2. Dry your hair

Blow dry your hair until it is 90% dry. It should feel cool to touch.

If you prefer not to use too much heat on your hair, you can leave it to air dry instead. 

Styling bangs

3. Style bangs (optional)

I styled my bangs with a round brush and my blow dryer.

However, this step is optional as you can simply incorporate your bangs into the braid instead, if you’d prefer.

Braiding hair

4. Braid your hair

Flip your head upside down and tie your hair into a regular 3-strand braid. 

5. Sleep in the braid, then undo

When you wake up in the morning, it’s time to undo your braid.

You should be left with gorgeous, overnight braid curls!
