  • Inside-Out Braid
The inside-out braid is a cross between a typical three-strand plait and a dutch braid. By folding hair outward, the braid is much more open and easy to stretch. This technique is easy to master, and it's the key to achieving all those messy braided styles you admire.

  • Dutch Braid
The dutch braid is an inside-out plait anchored to the head. Think of it as a french braid exposed! The finished look creates a plait that sits on top of the hair.

  • Milkmaid Braid
A milkmaid braid may look complicated, but really it's just pinned-up pigtails. This updo can be dressed up for a formal event or made casual with a pair of cut-off shorts. The key to making it chic is the face-framing fringe!

  • Fishtail Braid
Now that you've got the basic braids down, the fishtail is the first plait in the intermediate level. This technique slowly weaves smaller outside sections over a central base, creating a tight fishbone pattern.

  • Waterfall Braid
The waterfall plait is the laissez-faire way to braid. It's more like a twist because you let one strand fall through the cracks, creating a cascading look.

  • Crown Braid
The milkmaid and the crown braid can look very similar from the front. However, the top view clears up any confusion. This braid pulls from a central area on the crown of the head. The final result is a twisted wreath.

  • Ladder Braid
What do you get when you layer two waterfall braids on top of each other? A ladder. This style takes those extra cascading pieces and creates second plait. Don't be surprised if you have to talk to yourself while you practice this one.

  • Carousel Braid
A carousel plait is like a ponytail wrapped in a braid. We promise it's easier than it looks! The plait uses hair from a free-flowing pony to create a merry-go-round pattern.

  • Snake Braid
Remember those push-pop popsicles from elementary school? This braid is just like that! You create a regular three-strand plait. While holding one section in place, you push the remaining two pieces upward.

  • Five-Strand Braid
We've spotted this bohemian five-strand plait at music festivals and on the runway. While it takes tons of concentration to create, the final basket-weave effect will wow all your followers.
