How to Do Two French Braids


A basic French braid is a simple and elegant hairstyle. When you've mastered the single French braid, you can start using two French braids in your hair for even more style variety. Two French braids can expand your options from a ponytail braid, to pigtails, half ponytails, and even buns.

Method 1  Creating French Braid Pigtails



  1. 1
    Part the hair in the middle. Begin by brushing the hair and then parting it in the middle. Make sure the part goes from the hairline all the way to the nape. Pull the two sections of hair over your shoulders, as if you are about to tie your hair into pigtails.
    • The part in your hair does not have to be a severe straight line. You can have a messy, uneven part for a chic bohemian style. A zig-zag part can add a bit of funk to your style.
  2. 2
    Make the foundation braid. Choose a side to begin with. Take a small section of about .5 inches (1.3 cm) of hair from your hairline. Separate this section from the rest of the hair with your fingers.[1] Divide this section into three strands. Make the foundation braid by starting a standard braid. Take the right strand and cross over the middle strand. Then cross the left strand over the new middle.
    • You may want to secure the other, loose side with a hair band. This will help keep it from accidentally getting combined with the side you are braiding.
    • This foundation braid will be on the side of the head. Since you are making French braid pigtails, you should be braiding down each side of your head. The braids will sit just between the ears and the part.
    • If you'd like a looser braid, you can start with a larger section.
    • If you have very thick hair, you may want to work in larger sections.
  3. 3
    Begin the French braid. Add a small section of loose hair to the right strand. Cross the right strand over the middle strand while pulling the middle strand to the right. Add a small section of loose hair to the left strand. Cross the left strand over the new middle strand while pulling the middle strand to the left.
    • Keep your hands close to the head so the braid will remain tight.[2]
    • Make sure to add an even amount of hair each time you add hair to the strands. This will keep the braids neat and uniform, instead of uneven.
  4. 4
    Continue braiding. As you move down the side of the head, continue french braidingthe hair. You will pull hair from around the hairline in the front, and from along the part in the back. Each time you need a new layer, separate the hair you are adding in a horizontal line.[3]
    • When you run out of hair to add to the braid, continue braiding in a traditional 3-strand braid.
    • Make sure to keep the braid tight as you braid. This can be achieved by pulling the sections away from each other.[4]
  5. 5
    Secure the hair. When you reach the desired length of your braid, tie it with hair ties. You can add hair clips, ribbon, or other accessories.
  6. 6
    Repeat on the other side. On the other side of the head, repeat steps 2-5 on the hair. The braids should look identical. Make sure to stop them at the same place and try to use matching hair ties on each side.
    • If you would like an alternate style for French braid pigtails, instead of braiding all the way to the ends of your hair, stop at the nape of your neck. Secure the French braid with a hair tie. The hair hanging over your shoulders will be loose, so you can straighten or curl these strands.[5]
    • Another alternate style for two French braid pigtails is a bun. After finishing one of the French braids, pin the tail of the braid into a bun at the back of your head by wrapping the tail around. Secure with bobby pins. Repeat with the other side, pinning the other braid on top of the bun. Use as many bobby pins as necessary to hold the bun in place.[6]
    Method 2  Creating Two Side French Braids

  1. 1
    Part the hair. After brushing the hair, part it in the middle. The part only needs to go from the hairline to the crown of your head.[7]
  2. 2
    Start a foundation braid. Choose a side to begin. Take a small section of hair near the face and separate it from the rest of your hair. Divide this into three equal strands. Make the foundation braid with a traditional braid - cross the right strand over the middle, and then cross the left strand over the middle.
    • These braids will be small strands that curve around the back of the head to meet in the middle. You are not trying to braid all of your hair into the strands.
    • An alternate way to do this same style is to create two larger braids. This will give a slightly different look to the style. Follow the same steps, but add more hair. The larger braids will angle downwards more than the smaller braids, which means they will meet just underneath the crown instead of in the middle of the head.[8]
    • When you start the braid, angle the braid away from the face, towards the back of the head. Don't angle it down.
  3. 3
    Begin the French braid. Add a small section of hair to the right strand, then cross the now larger strand over the middle. Add a small section of hair to the left strand, then cross the now larger strand over the new middle. Continue this along the curve of the head.
    • Stop the braid once you get to the middle of the head. Secure with a clip or a hair tie.
  4. 4
    Repeat on the other side. Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side of the hair. The two strands should meet in the middle of the back of your head. They should be approximately the same size.
    • The braids are forming a braided half-ponytail. Most of your hair will be loose.
  5. 5
    Combine the hair. Take the clips or hair ties from the two sides of the half ponytail. Add these two strands together.[9]
  6. 6
    Style as desired. With the two French braids along your head, you can now style as you wish. You can secure the half ponytail with a clip or hair tie for a stylish half-up do. You can also pull the hair into a ponytail. If you want to add a bit of sophisticated style, wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
    • If you style into a ponytail or bun, the two French braids will rest just above the ponytail or bun.
    • You can also join the two braids into a single, 3 strand braid that goes down your back. To do this, combine the left and middle sections of your left braid into 1 left strand, combine the right section of your left braid and the left section of your right braid into 1 middle strand, and combine your middle and right sections of your right braid into 1 right section. Then, continue braiding in a traditional 3-strand braid.
    Method 3  Creating a Two French Braid Crown

    1. 1
      Part the hair. Brush the hair, and then part the hair down the middle. The part should run from the hairline to the base of the nape.
      • Secure one side of the hair with a hair tie. This will keep it out of the way until you are ready to use it.
      • An alternate style, you can part your hair to 1 side to create two different sized braids, or you can create a soft, messy part.
    2. 2
      Start a foundation braid. Gather the hair at the base of the neck. Divide the hair into three sections. Cross the right strand under the middle, then cross the left strand under the middle. This makes the anchor braid.
      • As an alternative, you can create a braided crown by simply French braiding your hair in pigtails, then wrapping each braid up and around your head. Tuck the ends under and pin the braid to your scalp.
    3. 3
      Begin a Dutch braid. Add a section of hair to the right strand, then cross under the middle strand. Add a section of hair to the left strand, then cross under the middle strand. You should be braiding upwards along your head.
      • Dutch braid is also called an inverted French braid or a reverse French braid. The hair is braided under instead of over like in a standard French braid.
      • This braid will be done from the bottom of the head up instead of from the top of the head down.
      • You may want to comb the hair in an upward direction before you begin so the hair is already in the right direction.
    4. 4
      Continue braiding around the head. Since this is a crown braid, the braid should follow along the curve of the head. Continue Dutch braiding by adding hair to the outer strands and crossing under.
      • Make sure that the amount of hair added to the strands is equal each time. This keeps the braid uniform instead of uneven.
    5. 5
      Switch to a plait braid once your reach your center part at your hairline. The center part at the front of your hair will be where you stop adding hair to that side. At this point, stop dutch braiding your hair and switch to plaiting. This is a simple 3 strand braid to complete that side.
      • If your hair ends at the part, simply tie it off. Since this style works best on long hair, the braid probably will end somewhere around the forehead.
    6. 6
      Secure braid. When the braid is finished, secure with a hair tie. Use a tie that is covered with fabric to minimize the risk of damage to your hair. Choose a hair tie that matches the color of your hair so that it blends in.[10]
