How long does my hair need to be to braid it?

I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT CORN ROWS. I google searched this question, but everything that came up was about corn rows.

THIS is the type of braid I'm talking about:
How long does my hair need to be to braid it?How long will my hair need to be to do something like this? I want to wear a loose braid with 3 twists. How many inches before I can do that?

  • I have curly hair so I can only braid my hair while it's wet. For straight hair I guess it has to be long enough that the sides can meet the back and that you have enough to work with. I have seen some short little braids

      Ok cool. Mine is just above my shoulders right now (the back at least), but the front and sides have some catching up to do 😅

  • About 3 or 4 inches from the point where your head and neck connect

      So specific. Thanks for the help!

  • I'd say maybe 3-5 inches past shoulder length

      That seems to be what most people are saying, so I'll trust you on that 👍

  • 1-2 minutes at most.

  • I'd say if you can put it in a good ponytail so it hangs down and you can grab it with your hand then you're good to go.
