Take all of the hair, split it into two and then take a third piece of hair from the outside and put it into the inside. From the left, from the right, from the left, from the right — and you just follow that pattern. It takes about 10 minutes to do one so you need strong fingers. After securing with elastic soften braid by pulling at it on each side to loosen.
You can also wrap the braid around the head, you can put it in knots, wrap it into a bun, you can do lots of things to it. You could just have a single braid down the back. That’s the great thing about this kind of hairstyle — it’s versatile. There’s a simple sophistication to. It can be dressed up or down.
