A unique woven braid!HairByRotem" on Instagram) came up with this awesome "layered woven braid" and was unable to do a video tutorial, so she asked if we would film one for her. Of course, I thought this braid would be a great one to share. So, huge thanks to @hairbyrotem for the fun tutorial idea today!
As shown in our video below, this braid is sort of a combination of a 4 strand braid, a waterfall braid, a fishtail braid, and a woven braid!
This braid can be worn as a half up hairstyle (as shown in the photos above) or braided into a full ponytail. When all of the hair is incorporated into the braid (in a full ponytail style) you will see more of a "layered look" similar to a "box braid" being formed. The pictures below are examples this.

We also wanted to add our own creative spin using this woven braid, turning it into the base of an elegant updo (shown at the end of our video and in the photos below.)
- One elastic or hair tie
- Gel, pomade, or damp hair to prevent flyaways
- 2 elastics and bobby pins (if you are creating the updo.)
