Preparing for a special day can be quite exhausting, especially if you’re unsure what kind of hairstyle you should rock. Have you considered chain braid, though?
The hairstyle was a result of a fantastic collaboration between Lelet NY, a modern luxury hair accessory brand based in New York and celebrity stylist Adir Abergel. The hairstyle soon became a hot topic among hairdo enthusiast, and it’s not hard to see why. Actress Vanessa Kirby rocked the fascinating look at the 2017 SAG Awards, and her light blonde hair complements the chain braid perfectly. The finished look is enough to turn any head around, but it would cost you around $500 for the handmade hairpiece.
In case you don’t have a celebrity stylist (or $500) to remake the hair for you, there’s no need to panic. YouTuber Kayley Melissa shared her way of doing the hair, but of course, with less money spent.
To make the chain braid, you’d need some materials. First, 10 yards of chain then hair combs, pliers, a measuring tape, headpins, jump rings (bigger than 6mm), and some beads for the end. You’d have to cut the chain to 24 and 28 inches each using the pliers. You can view the complete tutorial below!
If you have no confidence when it comes to hair craft, you can purchase the A x L Liquid Chain Comb from Lelet NY. Apart from silver, the comb is also available in gold plating. A-list celebrities like Jessica Biel and Kristen Stewart have also tried this premium hair accessory.
So whether it’s prom, casual night out, or even your wedding day, you can never go wrong with the fabulous chain braid. And there are many different ways you can use the chain comb, so feel free to explore the options!
