This is a four strand french braid. I started with four pieces and made sure to add to each side as I followed the over under scheme of a four strand braid. This is very similar to a regular french braid just with one strand more to keep up with. As you can see I’m in a T-shirt and jeans, meaning this is a wonderful braid for everyday around the house. A four strand braid since it has an even number of strands will rotate, unlike the three strand braid. This is more noticeable in the pony-tail section of the braid. If you wanted to play into this you could incorporate a ribbon while your braiding to accentuate the curve of the braid.
