Twisted 4 Strand Braid Pullback from Babes in Hairland

Here’s a  pretty little style we did on Bee recently and would be perfect for Thanksgiving tomorrow.  We’ve done similar things with regular 3 strand braids, but I liked how this one turned out the best.  But if you haven’t mastered 4 strand braids yet, use what works best for you!

Step 1 – Make a zig zag part

On the top of the head, make an off center zig zag part.  Then part down to each ear so you have 2 sections of hair divided out.

Step 2 – On the left side make a 4 stranded braid

We did a flat 4 strand braid and if you aren’t sure how to make one, you can watch our flat 4 stranded braid video here.  Braid to the end of the hair & secure with a rubber band.

Step 3 – Repeat Step 2 on the right side

Step 4-   Join the braids in the middle

Secure the 2 braids with a small rubber band so they meet in the middle.

 Step 5 – Twist the braids

I actually twisted them a bit like I would a rope braid, but you can probably get the same look by just crossing them over each other so they have a twisted look.  However, they may not stay twisted up as well.  Secure the ends with a rubber band.

 Step 6 – (optional) Curl & add accessories

I added little flowers to cover the rubber bands.

    Hi, lovely hairstyle! Love the look of the four strand braids. Just a quick question though, are the flowers, clips or hairbands? Thanks!

      They are alligator clips with flowers on them. I just slid them in above the rubber bands after I’d finished her hair! hth

    Awesome! Thank you. Now I’ve invested in some flower alligator clips, my sisters’ hair will look prettier than ever!

    My daughter is having fun with your hairstyles. Quick question, my daughter has rough loose curly jewish hair. Its really dry with lots of flyaways. I use creams to reduce frizz as much as I can, but I’m so envious of your daughter’s super smooth hair! What can I do to help smooth my daughter’s hairstyles. With all the frizzies, they don’t look as clean.
