Messy 5-Strand Braid Tutorial

Making a classical three-strand braid is rather easy. And it’s something almost everyone knows how to do. When it comes to four-strand braids, those are slightly more difficult to get done. And what about five-strand ones? It turns out that this cute style is not even that hard to accomplish. Check out the messy 5-strand braid tutorial and take your braiding skills to a whole new level!

The first step here is to divide hair into five sections. Get the last two strands and cross the right one over the left one. Then you will need to drop the section, which appears to be on your right hand and pass the section in your left hand under the section next to it from the left side. The process needs to be repeated in a way to get over, under, over effect.

When done with the first row of the braid you need to go for the second one, which needs to be started on the left side and using that “over, under, over” technique you should go all the way to the right side. The process needs to be continued as long as the hair will allow.

Usually this braid looks amazingly great with super-long hair. When making the braid do not make it too tight, the look of the braid will be spoiled. This hairstyle looks especially beautiful when done in a messy form. This will make it possible to have an overall impression of 3D look that the five sections give to your strand.

As a final step, the hair needs to be secured with an elastic band. The messy 5-strand braid can be easily transformed into a romantic one by just adding a flower to your hair either on the side or over the elastic band.
