Split the hair into three sections. The area underneath your ear will be the “anchor” point for your braid, so don’t move the braid around once you get started. Don’t get to frustrated if you mess up the first time around, practice makes perfect, and we all make mistakes!
Starting underneath your ear, braid as you normally would. Grab one of the outer sections and cross it over to the middle, then grab the outer section on the opposite side and pull it to the middle; repeat, cycling through all three strands over and over again.
Stop at the desired length. It’s best to stop before strands of your hair become so short that they begin falling out of the sides of your braid. Yes, this happens to everyone, even my hair stylist. She too just tucks them back in hopes they they don’t come falling out again.
Secure the end of the braid with an elastic band, arrange any wisps of hair that are hanging out, and spray with hair spray if desired.
