french braid

Here's what a full french braid looks like. On the bottom half, you can see the how the braid keeps going until we've run out of hair. However, you might notice some funky things happening in the upper half. This is how we keep the braid on your head. Right before you move one of the outside strands over the top and into the middle, you're going to grab a little bit more hair that is right next to your strand. My technique is to have a strand between my index finger and thumb, and slide my index finger behind the hair I want to add to the strand. Then you can move the strand over into the middle. This technique takes a bit of practice to get down, so I would focus on doing this type of braid first before moving on to more advanced braids. This grab-and-add move will be an integral aspect of most of the braids that we'll eventually go through. However, in my opinion, this is the easiest braid to do on yourself, as you're able to use your head to help hold onto your hair.

One way to wow people with your braid is to use this waterfall braid. As each strand is braided through, it eventually falls of, looking as if your hair seamlessly flows through the braid. While looking fancy, this braid is only a small variation on a French braid.
