This French Braid Twist is one of my favorites. I am going to tell you right now that it is a braid/twist that you need to be patient with, and think through each step. Good Luck and I am here to answer any questions. Let's get started!
Peanut's hair is damp and I comb all of the hair back and then in the direction that the hair will be pulled. As you can see the sides are going up and the middle straight back.
Part almost a triangle section at the front of the head.
Split that hair into two sections. From here on out you will need to be twisting the left side on top and the right side on the bottom. One on top of the other.
Twist Two Times. Right on bottom, left on top. My picture is showing the opposite but I promise it is as written.
This is what it will look like with two twists.
You will now begin adding the hair into the twist just like a french braid. Again the key here is to keep the right underneath and the left on top.
- Take a section of hair from the right hand side, add it to the hair that is already there and twist the right section underneath to the left and the right section will now be on top at the left hand side. (confusing on know but just try it)
- You will now add hair from the left hand side on top and move it to the right hand side but do not twist the hair.
- You will repeat the process only twist the two pieces when you move the hair underneath from the right hand side to the left hand side.
This is what your hair will start to look like. Repeat all of the way down
This is what you will end up with an upgraded French braid.
Please Please Please, I confused myself typing the instructions but once you dive in you will find it pretty simple if you know how to do a french braid. If you have any questions please let me know!
NOTE: Just remember right: under left: over and twist once. Repeat.
