6 Mesmerizing GIFs of How to Create Every Braid You’ve Ever Been Obsessed With

You already know how to three-strand braid (and have since you were, like, 5), but if you’ve ever seen a more complicated braid and wondered, How the eff do I do that? keep reading. From a fishtail to a chain braid, Kayley Pak, braid specialist at the John Barrett Salon in Bergdorf Goodman, shows and tells you how to weave the perfect plait.

1. Regular French Braid

Start by brushing your hair back with a boar bristle paddle brush so it’s smooth. Then, take a comb (you can also use your fingers) to section your hair off in a “V” formation from your temples to the crown of your head. Next, take three pieces of hair from that section and begin braiding them, making sure to incorporate more hair from each side of your head each time you cross the hair over. Repeat this until the ends.

2. Dutch Braid aka the Inverted French

To create an inside-out French braid (note: this is also how you braid cornrows), repeat all the steps above, but then when you begin braiding, cross the sections of hair underneath one another, rather than over each other.

3. Rope Braid

First, put your hair into a ponytail and create two sections, and twist each one in the same direction. Then, cross the two sections over each other and secure it at the ends with an elastic band. Pro tip: Keep pomade on your fingertips to keep any stray strands in place, and use hairspray to lock your style in.

4. Fishtail Braids

Start by sectioning your hair into pigtails and divide each section into two (this is instead of three sections, like you would for a regular braid). Next, hold both sections in one hand, separated by your pointer finger, and use your other hand to grab a small piece of hair from the outside of one section. Pull the strand over to the other half, and then take a piece from the outside of that section and braid the opposite way. Keep braiding until you’ve just about reached the ends and finish it with an elastic. It’s even better if it’s messy, so pull out some strands and stretch out the braid for an intentionally undone look. Finally, take a selfie (newsboy cap optional.)

5. Dual Texture Braid
Curl your hair first for added texture, so the braid has more grip — you can even coat it with some hairspray. Next, create a deep part on the right (this will allow more braid to show straight on), and then pull your hair over your left shoulder. Begin creating a regular French braid, pulling pieces from your hairline each time, and braid past your ear. Clip off the braid so it doesn’t unravel. Then, from your right temple, French braid the rest of the hair, following the nape of your neck until it meets the first braid.

To finish off the look, combine the hair where the two braids meet and fishtail braid all the way to the ends.

6. Halo Braid

Part your hair down the center. Starting at the nape of your neck on your left side, begin creating an inverted French braid following your hairline. Continue doing so the entire way around your head until you’ve braiding all your hair. Finally, tuck the secured ends under the braid and you’re done!
