    I did this leaving my part in place today. It felt a bit odd at the front but I got used to it fairly quickly. My sections where of uneven sizes. My top section was much bigger than the bottom two.

    I also call this a faux-French braid. Am I wrong? Is that something else entirely?

    I just tried this and wow! I sometimes have issues with random strands of hair pulling at my scalp with a regular English braid, but not with this one! Thank you, I'll definitely be using this braid often!

    I find the sections very difficult to put into dry hair without the lower two poofing up along the nape, but I do like to use this kind of braid as the basis for a bun if I'm working with damp hair. My experience is similar to yours: I keep my center part in and have to make a very "shallow" top section in order to keep the braid strands of equal girth. I also wind up with a very uneven tail compared to a horizontally sectioned braid (the upper section "runs out" of length much more quickly than the lower two). For that reason--at least on me--I don't think it looks very good hanging loose. But the long hinky tail doesn't matter when you're using it for a bun, after all.

    I've been using this for years. Torrin uses this for her braided nautilus bun. I didn't realize it had a name.

    Nice-looking braid, Stagecoach!
