Diamond Braid Step by Step

This diamond braid has been everywhere on Youtube and Instagram lately, so of course, I had to show you guys how to do this unique and beautiful hairstyle.

This is an advanced braid, but I feel that what makes this braid difficult is maneuvering the hair around and not the steps themselves, so when you have the hand placement down, this is actually quite easy, it just takes a while.

This post is all about how to diamond braid!

In this braid, I used a couple of extensions to make the braid thicker, but if you don’t have extensions you don’t have to do that! You can just take some bigger sections and use some styling powder to give the hair some grip and also thicken up the hair.

This hairstyle looks amazing with straight hair, but to give the hairstyle a more soft feminine feel, pick your favorite curling iron and curl the hair hanging down!

Infinity diamond braid for beginners

This diamond braid is actually just a normal infinity braid, that you add hair to, to make it wider towards the middle, and then take out hair to make it thinner again towards the bottom of the braid to give the diamond braid.

If you don’t know how to infinity braid, then I would recommend starting there. When you have the “basic” braid down, then come back to this diamond braid and work on adding and taking out hair. An easy step-by-step video is linked below!
