Lesson 17: Upside down braid

This braid looks just like the regular braid, only upside down. Divide the hair into three strands.  Instead of alternating bringing opposite sides to the middle, you bring the middle strand to the outside. (Middle to the right, middle to the left, middle to the right, middle to the left.)  For the style in the picture, part the hair in two boxes in front (in the center or to one side).  Braid each section and put in a temporary band or clip.  Brush the remainder of the hair in the back into a ponytail.  Add the braids in and wrap another hairband around the whole thing.  Then undo the temporary clips and brush out the tail smooth.  If you try to add the braids in with the ponytail with only one hairband, it is harder to get it to stay smooth. The braids sink down into the rest of the hair instead of standing out on top.

  1. Hi, I know this is an old post but just a random comment on it.. Upside down/ inside out braids DO NOT mix with salt water. 5 guide camps to the beach and 2- 8 hours de-tangling hair is how I found this out.
