Okay, last try at this. I swear.
This time it went like I wanted it to. But damn, it took forever to finish! Maybe with some more practice it will be quicker and less aggravating for me. It was really frustrating!
But the result was great: Two layers of twists leading into a five-stranded braid.
The sectioning off for the twists really helped me keep track of the strands. My issue with the multi-stranded braids is that it's difficult to keep the individual strands separated and then it turns into an irritating mess for me.
I tried to make a simple gif of where I got the hair for the sections from (To make each strand around the same thickness) and how they went around as strands. Does it make sense?
Anyways. Here is a better sized picture with the result:
Very pleased with it!
PS: Please ignore the pajamas. It was right before bedtime and I couldn't be bothered to change back into clothes for a picture.
Would I do this style again?
Yes. Despite how long it took to create, I really liked it.
