Hopefully, you will learn how to do these braids, so your hair always looks different.
1. Three-strand regular hair clip
- One of the easiest to learn, the regular three-strand braid has become the basis for most braided hairstyles.
- It is based on dividing the hair into three parts, then alternately crisscrossing the right and left sections over the middle section to the end.
- It sounds complex in theory but trusts us: once you get the hang of it, your muscle memory will do it without thinking.
2. French braid
- The French braid is simply a braid that begins at the scalp rather than the ponytail.
- The same technique applies, only this time, the hair is taken from anywhere on the head and incorporated into the main braid as you go down.
- It anchors the braid to your head and creates that pattern that can be done in any direction.
- Like most French things, this gown is classy. Take practice as you will be braiding the back of your head that is, braiding blindly.
3. Dutch braids
- The Dutch braid is a French braid, but sections cross under the middle section with the side.
- It makes the braid stand out in the centre of your head, which gives it the name “banana braids.
- ” They are also known as “inverted French” or “boxer braids” (they are so comfortable that athletes love them).
- And yes, they are also called “recluse braids”. These braids rose to the top of popularity due to social media and celebrities.
4. Inverted braid
- Not to be confused with the “inverted French braid”, this braid gets its name because it starts at the neck and goes up, ending at the crown. It is not as difficult as it looks.
- Put your head down and start the French / Dutch braid at the nape of the neck, tying the ends in a high ponytail.
5. Fish braid
- The fish braid is one of the few braids that doesn’t use all three sections, so it’s a bit of a hassle to learn.
- It’s done by dividing your hair into just two sections, and then you take a thin strip from the outside of one section and cross it over the other.
- This alternating movement of units will result in a herringbone pattern.
