1. Dutch Braid or Inverted French Braid
By saying inverted French braid here, we mean inside out French braid. You have to braid your hair just like you braid the normal braid. But when you start braiding, intersect the sections of your hair underneath each other instead of putting it above each other. Check step by step tutorial here
2. Fishtail Braid
This braid is much in vogue these days, and it is not going to go out of trend anytime soon. For this, you have to first section your hair into two. Hold both the sections securely in each hand separated by your index finger. Use the rest of your fingers to draw out a small part of hair from the outer
side of one segment. Pull that strand over the other half. Then similarly,take a section of hair from the outside of the other segment and braid the in a reverse manner. Keep interweaving till you reach the ends. Secure it with a clear rubber band. Check step by step tutorial here
3. Dual Texture Braid
You need to style your hair with curls for a fuller look. Make a parting on your right and then put all your hair to the left shoulder. Begin like you makes your regular French braid. Pull a strand right from your hairline every time you twist a braid over your ear. Pin it on so that it doesn’t unravel. Now come to the right temple and braid the remaining hair till it reaches the first braid. Now make a fishtail braid with the hair where the two braids cross. Secure it with an elastic.
