Two Strand Braid

Back when I did the braid test I did this two strand braid on day four. I didn't have the tutorial for this braid and several of you wanted this one. First let me just say sorry. I didn't realize I didn't have this one already on here. My bad---- will you forgive me?
I am making this into pig tails like I had on the day four photograph. You start with a small section and make two pieces to work with.
You will start by twisting INDIVIDUALLY both strands clock wise.
You then twist the two together in a counter clock-wise action. You then part up hair from both sides and add it into the hair that is on that side. No crossing over or changing positions just yet.
You twist INDIVIDUALLY again clockwise.
And cross them over counter clock-wise.
Add hair to both sides (we are repeating the steps now).
Give them a twist individually clockwise...
Then cross them over counter clock-wise.
Add more hair in on each side.
Then twist them clock-wise.
And twist the two together counter clock wise.
add hair to BOTH SIDES.
twist clock-wise each strand.
Cross over to combine counter clock-wise.
You continue on and on until you get to the end. when you are working on hair that you don't combine just twist it really tight so it doesn't loosen up too much. For the other side of the braid you do just the opposite so they have good symmetry. You twist individual hair strands counter clock wise and combine together in a counter clock wise action.
Looks good doesn't it.
We wanted a pony tail at the bottom this time just for a change, so we bunched at the top and let the rest of the hair out of those other elastics to make one pony tail in the back. Lovely.

  1. This is one of my favorite looks for my girl's hair, yet it is still my least favorite to do. I have such a hard time making it smooth like you.

  8. This is a very lovely hairstyle, I tried doing it on my daughter but I still need some practice since twist braiding is a little difficult for me. Would you lease consider doing a video tutorial for this look, I learn better from videos than photos....lol

  10. I did this on my daughter's hair today - and, I gotta say, I don't know HOW you keep the hair twisted! I ended up using my mouth to hold one piece while I twisted the other. My fingers were so sore by the end! It looks cute, though. You are awesome - thank you!
