I agree with the verdict its an underhanded french braid. Looks really good. I think the main trick is to keep the tension in the plait or else its going to be really loose. When your finished use a small piece of a comb to smooth the flyaway pieces and tuck them into the plait with the pointy end of a tail comb. Then spray with hair spray. Should stay in place then. Have fun!!

I braid running braids half french (only collecting once per plait) and double because I like the way it falls better. This is what it looks like:


I Also like it because the braids are loose enough thar he can reach the ground but tight enough that they won't come loose.

Good think I read this first, I was about to make a new thread.

I decided I am going to do a running braid on rocket for our shows since I would hate to cut his nice long main. Any good suggestions on how to keep it snug to the neck? Mine ended up being super loose no mater what I did when I practiced today.
