I've waited quite awhile to try and tackle the four strand braid, mostly because it looks really intimidating. After trying it a few times, I realized it's actually not that complicated at all! Courtney and I wanted to share a quick how-to with our own twist to it..
What you'll need: two elastic bands (one you're okay with cutting), four strands of lace, and scissors.
First, put your hair into a ponytail with four strands of long lace attached to the inside of the ponytail. Next, divide your hair into four sections, with a strand of lace in each section. Now it's time to braid! From left to right, we will number each strand to make it a little easier. Strand one goes over strand two and under strand three. In the next photo you'll see strand four go under strand one, then over strand three. Simply said, the outside piece will always be the strand you'll weave with, going under then over, then over then under, etc. Continue this process until you've reached the end of your hair and secure with an elastic band. Then, take the remaining strands of the lace and wrap around the end of your braid, covering the elastic band. Lastly, cut the elastic band at the top, and tuck the ends of the lace into the braid.
And a big thanks to my pal, Courtney, for being such a great model!
