This is a french-braided bang. So we're going to take where your bangs are. Normally your bangs are kind of in a triangle section right at the front of your face. So what we're going to do is we're actually going to pull that and then a little bit more hair from the back, and we're going to pull it forward. And what we're going to end up doing is we're actually going to do a french braid but we're only going to pull in hair from the bottom section. So we're going to not pull anything down from this, from the top. So let's section that up into three sections. Start your braid just like you would and then you're going to pull in pieces from the bottom. From right around your hairline, right around your face. This is a great thing to do when you're growing your bangs out. If you're tired of wearing them down or if they've gotten to the point when they're a little bit too long to wear down. This is just a great way to keep them off of your face. And then I would get to the top of the ear, and what you could actually do because you've integrated some long hairs from around the face, you could continue to braid it back. Just a regular braid. So we've french braided the top portion and then now we're just going to regular braid. And then you can simply secure it with a great elastic band. And that is a braided bang.
