Want To Learn This Braid?

This "7 strand woven braid" is one of our all time favorite braids! And yes, I did say SEVEN strands lol. It's surprisingly easy though (easier than it looks anyway.) We actually use it a lot but I've never posted it before because it's just too hard to explain the plaits in pictures. Well, we (finally) got a new camera that records for more than 60 seconds, YAY. So I just might consider trying to do a video on it if some of you want to learn. I was actually planning on finding a tutorial and linking you to it (that would be a lot easier!) But I've searched and searched and haven't been able to find instructions anywhere.
7 strand plaitSo... anyone interested in learning this one? Or maybe you already know how to do a 7 strand braid, or wouldn't use it? Let me know in the comments.

  17. That looks really intricate. I would love to learn it, but I'm not sure my fingers would cooperate. BTW - I just found your blog a couple of weeks ago and I've tried a couple of styles. My daughter gets so many compliments and she always tells them we saw it on princesshairstyles.com. We are big fans!!

  18. Yes, I would love to learn this braid-it looks so pretty! Since you got a new video camera, I was wondering if you would post a video of the 5 strand french braid. I'm not sure if the princess has long enough hair to do it, but just seeing how you do a few plaits would be helpful.

    Thanks!

  36. Hey I've been checking out your site the last few weeks for my 3 year old. even her nanna (hair dresser) loved the little star and stayed in with fine hair even the twist/weave.
    anyway i just thought for the flat plaits like this the best instructions are in leather/rope work books. I have one here somewhere but never thought about doing them in hair but then again my daughters hair would be a bit fine/short to pull it off. The flate braids like this are commonly used for belts/ropes for bull riders and the smaller one for reins. It may be better to show a smaller one like a 5 plait cause after all the 7-9 + plaits are just adding that extra strand in.
    Sorry this got too long.
