Traditionally, braids have one closed end and one open end. The open end is twisted in a manner to create a braid and is then tied off.
This braid intends to throw all of your preconceived notions about braids out the window.
This braid has two closed ends, and is made with magic.
It can be challenging to get perfect the first time, practice a few more times and experiment with different sizes of straps to obtain the look you are going for.
- Leather (or similar) strap approximately 1 inch by 8 inches
- Scissors or X-Acto Knife
Step 1: Acquire Strap
Find a strap about an inch wide and 8 inches long. I prefer leather because of its durability. Unlike fabric, leather will not fray after being cut, which is very important. The braid can be made ultimately with any flat material, but leather seems to work best.
