How to Create a Reverse Chinese Ladder Braid | Cute Hair Tutorials

We’ve shown you how to do the full Chinese Staircase Braid last year, and it has over 700,000 views! This week, we are showing you how to create a Reverse Half Chinese Ladder Braid! Click to learn how to do it yourself!

We took the standard stitch for the Chinese Ladder braid and switched it up a bit. You know how you basically reverse the stitching to turn a French Braid into a Dutch Braid? We are going to do the same thin here with the Chinese Ladder Braid.

To reverse the stitching, you take the hair UNDER the ponytail, instead of over it. Be sure to watch the hair tutorial carefully to see what I am talking about.

This may be a hard hairstyle to DIY at first, especially on the back of the head so it may be a great idea to practice this on a friend first!
