Wreath Twist/4 Strand Braid

Wreath Twist/4 Strand Braid

I'm back with the other style we did for Christmas but it can be used anytime. This is very simple and can be done two different ways. For Christmas, we did this one, sorry no step by steps but it is so easy they aren't really needed (if you still need step by step let me know and I will be more then happy to do the pics for you, just let me know)  Start out with wet hair and add gel throughout, comb it smoothly back into a fairly low ponytail and secure. If you want the effect like above what we did was use a Christmas scrunchy with these little furry balls lol or you can attach a bow with a clip either just if you do a crunchy, make sure to put that one in before braiding. We usually  use one good elastic with a decorative scrunchy aver it. Next, split the ponytail hair into two sections. Now do a 4 Strand Braid one each section *tip. try and braid as far down as you can so there is less ends to hide. Now wrap one braid up, over the head to make a half circle and secure with bobby pins. Now take the other braid and wrap around the opposite side of the head to complete the circle, but make sure you are covering the ends from the first side and tucking in the ends from the second side, then secure with bobby pins. I also used a plastic craft needle to thread ribbon through the braids. Spray with hairspray and you're done!

Now this is the other version I mentioned. The only difference is I sectioned the hair into two sections and did Twist instead of 4 Strand Braids. Both have a nice effect.

Let me know what you think of these styles and thank you for reading :).
