Five-strand braid

If you already know how to French braid and you’re looking for a new challenge, try this five-section braid. The basket-weave braid makes even the thinnest hair look thick and gorgeous, and Luxy Hair’s video tutorial makes it easy to do on yourself. Watch the video to the left for the entire tutorial.

Things to keep in mind: There should always be one section of hair in the middle and two sections of hair on either side. As you braid the five pieces, repeat the steps of “over” and “under” to yourself to keep track of where you’re at, since it can get complicated.
