Freestyle Stitch Braids Tutorial for 2020

Look, I love stitch braids just as much as the next person—but after doing the same style over and over again, they can get a little meh. There’s a reason I always end up coming back to them though (and nope, it’s not because I hold on to things a liiittle longer than I should): Stitch braids are a guaranteed cute look that (a) really lasts and (b) doesn’t take hours on end to complete.

So this week on The Braid Up, we’re revisiting the classic look…only there’s a slight twist. Meet the freestyle stitch braid: a combination of six large stitch braids and teeny-tiny braids in between (aka the perfect break from your usual straight-backs). Our hair-braiding extraordinaire Stasha Harris gives us all the deets on how to get this look, below.

Down to recreate this look? Here’s everything you need to know.

1. Lather up with a sulfate-free shampoo. It’ll cleanse your hair—giving you a good foundation for your braids—without stripping your hair of its natural oils.

2. Part your hair into six sections. Psst: This is a good tip to give your braider. Mapping out the sections before you start braiding helps make sure every section is even and that the entire process goes smoothly.

3. Lay on edge control throughout your hair. This is the only way to make sure your sections and parts look sleek. Grab a non-flaky one and slap it on the back of your hand for easy access while parting.

4. Hit your braids with mousse before you go to bed. Want your braids to last longer? Work about two pumps of mousse through your braids at night before covering them in a silk scarf to sleep. Doing so helps tame frizz and flyaways and makes sure your hair looks 100 for as long as possible.

There you go! Don’t forget to check out the video above before booking your appointment.

    I have to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this particular challenge. As a result of surfing throughout the the net and meeting solutions which were not helpful, I assumed my life was done. Existing without the answers to the issues you’ve sorted out as a result of your good report is a serious case, as well as ones which may have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your site. Your own training and kindness in taking care of all the stuff was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a thing like this. I am able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this specialized and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to refer your site to any person who desires support on this topic.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
