French Braid


This braid includes three sections of hair that are braided together. Hair is gradually added to each section as the braid moves across the head. In this style, a French braid is used to add texture and interest while pulling the hair into a side.

Fishtail Braid


The fishtail braid is smooth in appearance like a French braid. The fishtail braid divides the hair into two sections instead of three. In this style, a fishtail braid is used to create a half-up formal style.

Three Strand Braid

The three-strand braid is the most common braid. This style consists of six traditional braids woven together. This style is great for someone with lots of hair.  The braids keep it secure without using a large amount of bobby pins.

Fishtail Up-do


In this undo the fishtail braid continues into a bun. The style also has a French braid incorporated on the other side.
