What I like particular about this inside out French braid is the simplicity of the look, it is very neat, elegant looking and very classy. It can be worn for at least about a good week before having to undo the hair style. Adding little accessories and with the bang I think sets off the whole look and brings attention to how detailed an inside-out French braid looks, verses just the regular french braid.

#2: Inside Out Pigtail Braid

I find this particular inside out French braid is adorable, the fact that its pigtails definitely gives it an innocent look. A very casual and fun look to go to the beach or out on a hike. They can also be pinned together on the two free ends of the braid then attached together in the back and make a french braid crown if ever you want to take that look to a more chic upscale event or party, you literally will have created two looks within one.

#3: Inside Out Puff/Tucked Braid

So by far this is the most upscale , chic look out of all the inside out braid do’s, because of its very neat structured elements throughout the pattern. Its created on the side of the head then leads down to the end, then rolled up into a circular flower look. Gives it a nice refined and polished look all together. You definitely with this one since the inside out french braid is bigger it might not last as long because the thicker the French braid is the thicker the whole hairstyle is in to keep it together. So with maintaining you definitely want to make sure you sleep with a satin scarf at night. Have secure bobby pins so that you can at least have this doe last you for about 5 days or so.

#4: Inside Out French/Dutch Crown Braid

What I like most about this inside out French braid is that when you have those situations where you plan to wear your hair down whether you lose your curl or your high volume or it becomes wilted sometimes. You do not have time to restyle sometimes and if doing a protective style like the inside out braid it will help ensure the least amount of breakage and less heat to hair . Also a style just something to keep out of your face so that you can enjoy not having your hair fall in your face all the time. It is definitely on my top five list of fabulous hairstyles.

#5: Inside Out Fishtail Braid

So we all know that popular movie with that cartoon character Elsa how little girls are just raving over that cartoon character and her hairstyle. So that being said the woman took that hairstyle a step further and made it into an inside-out fishtail braid instead of an inside out French braid I think it was a brilliant idea. I have never seen an inside-out fishtail braid before so it just makes this whole look stand out and has fun amazing elements in it to make it such an amazing hairstyle. Since a fishtail braid is pretty messy it might only last you for a day or two, but if you keep conditioning and moisturizing your hair like you should, keep it tight up at night you might actually be able to get away with it for about 3 or 4 days.
