Intricate 5 Strand Braid


Hello! Today’s braid is 5 strand intricate braid with a micro braid. I have posted intricate 5 strand braid a while ago braided with pearl lace. This time I have decided to incorporate micro braid in it. There can be many variations possible with this braid, that’s totally depends on your creativity.

This hairstyle would be best for a work, meeting, every day, holidays, festivals, and marriage occasions.

You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Taken: 10 mins

Skill Level: Hard

Hair Length: Medium to long hair

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by side parting the hair, now a tiny section of hair from the nape of neck and start braiding a regular 3 strand braid.
  2. Then grab the remaining hair to one side, divide the hair into 4 equal sections.
  3. Let’s name the strand to make it clearer. 1st strand (from the left side), 2nd strand (just next to 1st strand), 3rd strand or the middle strand (micro braid), 5th strand (from the right side), 4th strand (just previous to 5th strand).
  4. Now keep the middle strand (micro braid) aside.
  5. Take 1st strand over 2nd strand & 5th strand over 1st
  6. Then chop the middle strand (micro braid) in between those strands.
  7. Now take the 5th strand under 4th strand & over micro braid, then take 1st strand under 2nd strand & over 5th
  8. Now move the middle strand (micro braid) to the middle(under). (The First stitch of the 5 strand intricate braid is complete now).
  9. Now take the 5th strand over 4th strand & under micro braid, then take 1st strand over 2nd strand & under 5th
  10. Now move the middle strand (micro braid) to the middle(over).
  11. Repeat the steps 5-10 till you reach the ends. Tug the edges of braid to make it look bigger.
  12. Secure the ends with elastic.
  13. Add hairspray. (if required)

Happy Braiding!
