You Will Need
- Decorative hair band
Brush your hair until it's free of tangles.
Separate into three sections
Separate the hair on the top of your head into three sections.
Cross the right section over the middle section, and then cross the left section over the middle section, as you would with a regular braid.
Gather another small section of hair from the right side of your head into the right-hand section, and cross it over the middle section.
Add more hair
Add a small section of hair from the left side of your head into the left-hand section, and cross it over the middle section.
Repeat, adding small sections one by one, until you have gathered all the hair into the braid.
Once you reach the nape of the neck, finish braiding the length of the hair.
Fasten the end of the braid with a decorative band. Spray it with hairspray and show it off.
