This basket weave braid by style master Sam Villa, Co-Founder of Sam Villa and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken, is the perfect accent or foundation for so many looks. “This simple two strand twist technique can easily be transformed into many different styles, and the pattern draws a lot of attention to long, medium and/or short hair,” Villa says. “Basket weaves are all about rhythm, get your rhythm down and your sections will be uniform and your confidence will soar.”
The Basics: Take a section, slice into 2, twist away from face, take a section from top surface, drop in between, twist away, continue rhythm and secure end with elastic.
