French braids are one of the most popular braids to do. Often when one thinks of braids, they imagine a French braid. This style of braiding is the go-to style for a fix to moments when you need to tie your hair up quickly, a day with particularly windy weather, or one of those mornings where you just don’t feel like styling your hair. They’re easy to create and is a cute hairstyle that can be worn in almost any setting.
French braids can be worn in one single braid down the back of the head, one low braid to the side, or as two braided pigtails. This is known as the simplest braid that you can do and it can be done on any type of hair with ease. Hair is crossed over one another when creating this braid, as crossing underneath would make this braid a Dutch braid.
The Waterfall Braid is one of my favourites and can be a little bit difficult to master if you are not patient with your braiding. This braid is normally done as one braid going around the head but sometimes, it can be seen cascading down an individuals head for a totally unique look. Waterfall braids are a three stranded braid that involves including strands of hair from the top of the head and leaving out or ‘dropping’ strands of hair from the bottom. It sounds confusing, but it can be done with practice.
Four Strand BraidThe four strand braid is an alternative to the three strand braid look and is done in the exact same fashion as its alternate. The only and obvious difference is that the four strand braid uses four strands instead of three.
