The Intricate Five Strand Braid Step By Step

Step By Step Instructions

The IntricateStep 1; As a first step split a circular part in the crown area and from the top and then sides out leave the shorter pieces. That way you will have more unified length part to the braid. Then tie everything else in a low ponytail to get the hair out of the way.

The IntricateStep 2; Now take just a small bottom piece of that circular part and then braid it into a normal three strand braid.

The IntricateStep 3; Now you need to release the rest of the part. Then bring the braid up just through the middle and then pin it to the top for a bit to get the hair out of the way.

The IntricateStep 4; Then split the rest of that hair into 4 hair strands At this point braid will be the 5th middle hair strand.

The IntricateStep 5; Now take the outer hair strand from the right side and then cross it over the one next to it and then do the same thing on the left side. Now 2 outer hair strands you should now form a cross in the middle. Then bring the braid just down and then you need to let it fall on top of the cross. That is way that you begin the braid. From now on you will have 2 slightly different rounds of braiding and alternating each other.

The IntricateStep 6; Round 1: You need to take the outer hair strand from the right hair strand and then bring it under the one next to it and then just over the braid. At this point from the left side just bring the outer hair strand under the one next to it and then over the next one. One more time just from the inner hair strand and form a cross. But you will see that the from the middle braid has moved away. At this point you need to move it back to fall in the middle hair strand under the cross.

The IntricateStep 7; Round 2: Now take the outer hair strand from the right and then just bring it over the one next to it and then under the braid. Now from the left side you need to  bring the outer hair strand over the one next to it and then under the next one. Now you need to move the braid back to fall in the middle just over.

The IntricateStep 8; Now until you get all the way down you need to keep alternating steps six and then seven. Remember you will need to pull the braid apart so do not go too far down. Now with an hair elastic tie the braid and then you need to pull on the edges of the braid.

The IntricateStep 9; Now you need to deal with the front side. Now you need to pick up a small section just near the part and then split it into 2 hair strands. Then from your face just start twisting them away. After each time you twist you need to add in a new part only into the lower hair strand and then twist again.

The IntricateStep 10; At this point you will decide that when you want to stop adding in new hair. Then you need to just keep twisting the hair strands together all the way down and without adding any extra hair and then just tie them off with an hair elastic.Now on the other side you need to do the same.

The IntricateStep 11; As a final step you need to cross the 2 twists in the back and then in the pockets that have formed on the sides just hide both ends. And with couple of bobby pins just pin that in place.
