What is a French Braid?

A French Braid is a classic type of braided hair, for women with long hair. The main difference between a French Braid and a regular braid is that it does not go "all the way to the scalp" and essentially looks better at the top, as it starts with three "clumps" of hair rather than going all the way to the roots.
