For short knotless braids with beads, you’ll need:

How to do short knotless braids with beads on natural hair

Short knotless braids with beads on natural hair require no additional braiding hair or extensions as earlier mentioned.

Start with freshly cleaned, blowdried and moisturised hair.

Part your hair into your desired sections (size wise) using a rat tail comb and apply shine n jam on your roots.

Shine n jam helps you tame the flyaways and makes for extremely neat looking parts.

Start by plaiting your hair into 3 braids (as in further divide the parted hair into 3 sections and braid it).

Repeat the same method all over your head until you’re done.

Take your beader and beads and start looping them in.

To loop the beads into your hair, you’ll need to fold the base of your hair into two parts, then loop it into the eyelet/hole on the beader.

After looping it in, you’ll simply slide the beads up. Use a rubber band to tie the folded part of your hair onto the last bead until no more hair is visible.

You’ll then slide the rest of the beads into position.

Repeat the same method on all your braids until all the beads are on.

Apply some mousse on your hair, lay your edges and you’re good to go.

How to do short knotless braids with beads with added hair

Start with clean, blowdried and moisturised hair as usual. Use a rat tail comb to part your hair and apply a generous amount of shine n jam on your parted sections.

This will help with taming any flyaways and will make for even more neat parts.

As is the norm in knotless braids, start by plaiting your natural hair and then gradually feed in the braiding hair as you move along the length of the braid.

To make them look as natural as possible you’ll need to feed in very little braiding hair.

This is for people who have short hair but still want to make the braids look like they’re done using their natural hair only.

Repeat the same method all over your head until you’re done.

Take a beader, fold the base of your hair into two then loop it into the hole/eyelet of the beader.

Slide the beads upwards into your hair and use a rubber band to tie the folded part around the last bead.

Cut the extra hair and slide the rest of the beads into position.

Apply some mousse on your hair, lay your edges and you’re good to go.
