- Use a bristle brush to comb through hair removing all tangles, and divide hair into two sections (right and left sections), creating a center part. Use a clip to clip the left section of hair out of the way while you work with the right section first.
- Divide the right section of hair into three equal strands (left, middle, and right) using your fingers to hold each strand. To begin braiding, (1) cross the right strand over the middle strand. (2) Then, cross the left strand over the middle strand. (3) Next, before continuing, add a new, small piece of hair to both the right strand and cross over the middle strand. (4) Do the same with the left strand, adding a new piece of hair to the strand before crossing over the middle strand. (5) Continue braiding, repeating steps 4 and 5, until the braid is complete. (6) Use an elastic to secure hair ends to hold braid in place. Then, braid the left section of hair, following the same steps.
- Spray the ends of hair with a dry wax, and use your fingers to shape and style hair as desired.
