Nine Strand Braid
A nine strand braid is a very unique way of styling the hair and it will also look great as a hairstyle. If you have a very long hair, then this style can be a perfect choice for you. It is also good for arts and crafts, especially with weaved jewelry. This hairstyle is more complicated to create when compared to a normal braid, but this one has the same principle. Following is a simple method that can help to create this style.
To get this hairstyle, first divide the hair into nine strands and tie all of them together at the end. Take five strands taut by holding it in the left hand and then the remaining four strands in the right hand. Keep the left most strands from left hand towards the center on the two most adjacent strands and just under the next two strands. Start moving the right most strand from right hand toward the center on the two most adjacent strands and just under the next adjacent two. Now, one of the strands will become the previous left most strand. Next pull the new left most strand on the center under two and then over two. Try to maneuver the new right most strand under two and then over two. Continue these steps until you reach the end of the hair or until you have the desired length. At last tie off the end of the hair with a rubber band.
