I love doing pony tails on my girls because it gets their hair out of their face. But I am always wanting to jazz them up a little. This 4 sided box braid is one I use often.
It is a little hard to show in the pictures but this braid is not just a regular 3 strand braid. It is a 3 strand braid on 4 sides. So there is a braid down the front, one on the right side, one on the left side and one down the back. That is also why it is sometimes called a box braid. Because it is a box of braids.
This one is so easy to do. You might be surprised how easy it is. As you watch the video, you can see the braid forming down the front but watch the left side too. It is towards the camera. You can see the braid forming on that side also.
This braid kind of amazes me how such simple movements can form braids on all sides. I will have to film a tutorial for a 4 sided/box fish tail and show you that one too. I love it just as much.
