I don't know what you are showing in, but if you are looking for a braid that simply gets it out of the way while schooling or for pictures, etc, try a running braid. It is like a French braid, but only pulling from one side. here's a picture
You really don't need it to be especially long for this to work, nor for it to be thick (though these attributes of course make it easier). Just use small "additions" to your braid.
Of course, some MTG, coconut oil, or other hair product of your choice to help thicken it and encourage growth, is also an option!
