Introduction: How to Do a 4-Strand Braid
Want to try a fun 4-stranded or Celtic Knot braid? Thea, our beauty and trends expert shows you how in 4 easy steps!
1. Pull Hair to One Side.
Tip: Start with dry, brushed out hair.
2. Braid Your Hair. Number the strands 1-4 to keep them straight in your mind. Thea starts with the farthest one away from her face as number 1. Braid number 1 over 2 and 3 over 4 and then 4 over 1. Then renumber for each braid sequence. Remember: 1 over 2, 3 over 4, 4 over 1. Repeat all the way down and tie with a hair tie.
3. Adjust the Braid. Flatten the braid out to see the intricate braiding work.
Tip: Pin your bang back it if is long for a medieval look.
4. Finish with Hairspray. Here Thea uses Clairol Herbal Essences Body Envy.
