Mane Types and Braideez braiding wire
Braiding wire is designed to give moldable structure to your horse braids.The volume of hair and the size of a braid determines the amount of wire that will be necessary to ‘hold’ it in the desired shape.
THIN HAIR – LOW VOLUME
One braideez wire folded in half will hold:
Braids up to 3”wide.
Use two side by side wires folded in half on widely spaced braids
( approximately 3”or greater)
MEDIUM HAIR - MEDIUM VOLUME
One braideez wire folded in half will do for braids up to 2” wide.
Two braideez wires used side by side and folded in half should be used for braids of approximately 2” to 5” in width
THICK HAIR –HIGH VOLUME
One wire folded in half for braids up to 1” wide
Two braideez wires –side by side- folded in half for braids 1” to 2” in width.
T wo or three braideez wires used side by side and folded in half for braids
2” and wider.
COMBINATIONS OF VOLUME
Often a horse’s mane will vary in thickness /volume on different areas of his neck. You may only need one wire for some braids and two for thicker sections.
Basic, Button Braids and Donut/Circle Braids.
