4 Strand Braided Net

Has anyone been practicing the 4-strand woven braid we posted the other day? I hope so! We've been having fun creating cute hairstyles with it. :)

Here's the first of a few.......4 strand braid hairstyle To make this "four strand plaited net":

Start by making a part from ear to ear, then make 4 sections along the front. Make a 4-strand woven braid in each of those sections (about 2 inches long) and put a clip at the bottom of each braid to keep it from unraveling. Take the braid in the middle/left and split it in half by removing 2 of the 4 strands from the clip.

Next, split the braid furthest to the left in half (by combining 2 strands in each half) and remove the clip completely. Now you should have formed 2 strands from each of those braids (4 total strands.) Braid those together to form another new 4 strand braid. Braid down another 2 inches and add a clip.
You should be able to repeat this process by splitting the remaining braids the same way you did the first 2 (forming 3 new braids.) The new middle braid will be formed by taking the 2 leftover sections from each of the left and right original middle braids. Gosh, this is starting to sound confusing, even though it's not!

(As you can see, I messed up when I joined the 2 braids on the left and flipped the original braid over, oops. :))
I finished this off by splitting and combining the braids one more time to form 2 final braids. Of course, you could go one more time and end with only one braid if you wanted to. I thought it was cute just like this though (and would have been even cuter if I hadn't messed up that left side, lol.)
