How To French Braid - 4 Strand

You may remember the 4 strand woven braid we posted a few weeks ago. If you figured out how to make that braid, this french braid shouldn't be too hard.

The video tutorial for making this braid is at the bottom of this post. These are just a few ideas for hairstyles that can be made using this french braid.

I love how intricate and different this french braid looks without being extremely difficult to make. After I posted the regular 4 strand braid, we even had a few moms on our facebook page get one step ahead and figured out how to do make this braid all on their own before I posted this video! Let me know how it turns out if you try it. :)
