1. Brush hair

Before braiding, brush hair to smooth out any knots or tangles.

2. Gather hair at top of head; divide into three sections

Starting at the hairline, gather enough hair from top of head to start a regular braid. Divide hair into three equal sections. Hold right section in right hand, left section in left hand, and middle section between thumb and another finger of either hand.

3. Cross the sections

To begin braid, cross right section over middle section, then repeat this move with left section, smoothing hair down as you go. Pull sections fairly tight; you don’t want the braid to be loose and come undone.

4. Add hair to the section

Before repeating your cross-over motion with the right section, gather a little bit of additional hair from the head’s right side, and add it to this section; now cross this larger portion of hair over the middle section of the braid.

Tip: Make sure that the sections of hair you’re adding are roughly equal or the braid will look lopsided.

5. Add hair to the section on the other side

Gather a small section (of equal size to the one you just gathered) of the remaining hair on the left side of your head up and into the left section and cross that over the middle section.

Tip: Slightly dirty hair has less “slip,” making it easier to braid.

6. Repeat adding hair and crossing sections

Repeat steps 4 and 5, adding hair until you’ve gathered in all additional hair strands. Finish at the bottom with a regular braid.

7. Secure the braid at the end with a band

Once you reach the bottom of the braid, secure the end with a hair band, wrapping it tightly around the hair.
