There are different types of braids included in our list, starting the regular braids which are the easy 3-strands. Here are the others:
- French Braid – French braid or French plait is done by taking a small section of hair on the crown, dividing it to 3 sections and then doing a regular braid while gradually adding hair to each section that crosses another.
- Dutch Braid – Dutch braid is basically the opposite of French braid. This is almost the same as French braid but the crossing is done under each strand.
- Fishtail Braid – Fishtail braid looks like a regular braid but is a more intricate and woven piece. It is actually done with just parting the section of the hair into two. A small section of the parts are used to pass over to the other section. This is repeated until you reach the end of the braid.
- Pancake Braid – Pancake braid is simple. Just do a regular braid and then pull the braids to flatten it. Just make sure you don’t overdo it so the braid will not come loose.
