First start off with your hair just plain jane.
Grab the chunk from behind your ear and pull forward.
Take the half you didn't pull forward and grab it and give it a little tease/back comb
Tease right behind where you want your bands to lay.
Do as you did on the other side ad grab the chunk from behind your ear.
Pull forward and tease the rest back.
Grab an inch or 2 inch section of hair from the bottom part closet I your ear. (Thicker the hair the thicker the braid)
Braid til almost the end (excuse my face and red eyes, just a little sleepy )
Hold the braid out so you can begin to cross it over your head
Lay the braid over where you work like it to go.
Bobby pin it to your head. You may need to use 2
Grab the hair you left at the end (the strands you didn't braid)
Add them to another chunk like you did to the other side and braid like you did on the other side
Pull this braid in front of the other and put it where the other braid began.
Secure this braid to the other braid and your scalp.
Take the clips out of your hair that help the other hair out the way
Comb over the hair you had teased just to tame it to your liking.
You can leave the hair like this If you would like but I prefer a few more steps.
Take your bands and a few strands of the front hair.
And pin them behind the side of the braid
Same as the other side grab some side hair and pin back.
Pin it back
This is my final look. You do not have to do these last pinning steps.
These are photos of my final look!
Hope this helped and hope you enjoyed! 😁
