We all like to wear French braid hairstyles as they add elegance and charm into our personality. Mostly girls appear with standard style where braid starts from the middle and end to regular braid. So, today I decided to unlock 10 different ways of creating this braid. You just need to follow the basic braiding rules and rest of style is simple enough to follow.

Instead of taking hair from the middle section ( which is quite usual), you should try something unique. The idea is to gather hair from one side for braiding. This simple thing would help you add uniqueness factor to your style and this is what you always like.

2.Make a combo with Fishtail

Another great idea of style to follow is to wear French and fishtail braid together. Make a simple French braid and instead of closing this braid with regular three strands make it special with chunky fishtail braided patterns. This is how you would be able to get cool hairstyle.

3.Double Side braiding

This is indeed the most beautiful kind of hairstyle idea. Do a simple or side braiding and when you reach close to the nape then you don’t need to do regular braid. You should go with a messy low hair updo or simple twisted bun. Try this idea on upcoming formal event and you will love to accept appreciation from your friends.

5.Upside Down Braiding bun

I really like upside down braid ideas as they simply look cool and somehow difficult. Fact is that this hairstyle is quite easy to make. Instead of starting from the top front, you need to begin close to nape area. The beauty of this braid is lies on the upper bun as well, therefore you shouldn’t miss it at all.
