Braid 12-French Braid and Four Strand Side Braid is a spin-off of the French Braid front that I made years ago.
This style features a French plait that is a bit decentered, similar to the Mohawk Dutch Braid, but ends in a four-strand braid with a single plait running in the middle. It may seem difficult, but placing a braid right in the middle is pretty easy. Just plait one of the four strands into a braid and voila! You have a chic four-line strand that is different than any other.
Follow these steps to complete the look!
Step 1 / Start by pulling all the hair over your left shoulder.
Step 2 / Next, take a strand of hair at the hairline and divide it into three parts.
Step 3 / Cross the sides of the middle.
Step 4 / Cross the front and put in a section.
Step 5 / Cross the back and bring in a section.
Step 6 / Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the braid reaches the neck, but lets out a last part of the hair on the inside.
Step 7 / Braid the braid a little further and tie it off.
Step 8 / Take out one piece and braid it into a regular braid.
Step 9 / Next, take the French braided portion so that there are now four strands.
Step 10 / Complete a four-strand braid by crossing the outer strand under the strand next to it (towards the neck) and then over the strand next to it.
Step 11 / Then take the strand that is closest to the neck and cross it over the strand to the left and then under the strand next to it.
Step 12 / Repeat steps 10 and 11 until the braid reaches the end of the hair.
Step 13 / Tie the braid with a hair tie and gently pry the sides to get a bigger braid.
Done! A side or front French braid will go into a four-stranded side braid with a braid in the middle!
