Hello, Beauties! Today’s Braid is fishtail + dutch braid with side 4 strand braid. As you’ll know that there are numerous options with braid combinations. I did fishtail & dutch braid on the top & 4 strand braid as side braid. You can use ribbon or chain or micro braid for braiding 4 strand braid.

You can wear this hairstyle for work, meeting, birthday’s, festivals, any wedding occasions or on holidays.

You’ll Need: Brush, elastic, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Taken: 15-17 mins

Skill Level: Medium

Hair Length: Medium to long Length

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by deep side parting the hair, separate the heavier section down to the ear.
  2. Secure the rest of hair with an elastic to stay out of place.
  3. Now, create two section of equal size, about 2 inches
  4. Begin with the front section hair by grabbing the small section & divide the hair into 2 strands.
  5. Then pick a tiny strand of hair from left side section, cross it under left strand and add it to right side strand.
  6. Then pick a tiny strand of hair from right side section, cross it under the right strand and add it to left side strand. ( the First stitch of the dutch fishtail is complete now).
  7. Now repeat the steps 5-6 by adding hair, once you reach around ear start braiding without adding the new hair. (Don’t braid till the end of hair).
  8. Begin by grabing the section of hair beside fishtail and divide the hair into 3 equal strands.
  9. Now pick the strand from left & cross it under the middle strand, then pick the strand from right & cross it under the middle strand. (The first stitch of dutch braid is complete now).
  10. Now repeat the step 9 by adding hair, once you reach around ear start braiding without adding the new hair. (Don’t braid till the end of hair).
  11. Now grab the remaining hair onto one side (incorporating those two braids as well) and divide the hair into 4 strands, make sure that 3rd strand should be tiny in comparison to other three strands (this is the key to braid).
  12. Then cross 1st strand over 2nd strand  under 3rd strand (tiny strand), 4th strand under 1st strand and over 3rd strand. (The First stitch of 4 Strand braid is complete now).
  13. 3rd Strand (tiny strand) would always be at the 3rd place (this is the key,in case you get confused while braiding).
  14. Continue braiding till you reach the end of the hair & secure the braid with an elastic.

Happy Braiding!!
