Take a section of hair from behind the ear. If your hair is very long, you may also take your section from the corner of your nape.

Once you've braided your section, cross it over your head and tuck it behind your ear with a bobby pin or two. Make any necessary adjustments to hide the side of the braid properly.

Repeat steps on the other side.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Look!
