    Thanks y'all


    giraff, that's looking good.

    Elodea, That might work. It also might need many more braids. Or stopping the weave a bit higher up so I am not taking sections closer in than the previous new section..

    HaMalka and lapushka thank you both!

    I'm very open to ideas on how to include it in an updo, by the way. I have shoulder length hair

    I do, too. I wonder if you could tie off the ends with those little clear elastics-- you'd have to fasten two sections together to keep it from unweaving, I think-- and then just leave it loose?


    No way could I ever do this on myself, either, although I'd love to... it's so pretty. A five-strand braid is my limit-- once I run out of notches between my fingers to stick sections in, I can't do any more. There's no way I could do what she does, which is just let some sections go to combine and then be able to easily re-separate them. It would be hard enough to keep them separated/from tangling together even if I had a finger between each.

    And unweaving at the end... oh, no. I have a hard enough time with multi-strand, and 3-strand French, braids in getting the tangles out as I unbraid.

    I think any kind of updo would hide it, unless it was a very low like a Gibson tuck, or unless you started it right at the hairline. But with your length of hair, you could basketweave it, ponytail the rest, and tuck the ponytail under?

    I'll try that next time! I tried to do tiny braids from the front like she did it, but it didn't really look great on me. Thank you for replying

    Thank you for the suggestion. My main braid model dislikes having her hair loose if she is going to be doing anything, but that could be an option if I got a different model to sit still for me. It would definitely not be an option if I tried this braid on my own hair.

    googling basket weave braid gives a variety of looks. For example doing the basket weave starting at the hairline as a headband could work if your hair is long enough to cross over your head and then pinning up your ends as you usually would.

    arc691 did this braid as well. If you look the pictures she takes the ends of the basket weave and buns some of them. Maybe that would work at your length if you did a couple of buns?

    I can't tell how long the models hair is, but this tutorial might be useful to you though you might have a shorter end braid.

    I can't really recall what worked at shoulder length other than teeny tiny sections.

    Thanks for all the suggestions to keep it from scrunching. What I went with this time was putting each strand into a french braid after finishing the basket weave. This keeps them in place and separate though I still need some practice at it. Sorry for the poor quality of this photo.
