Step-by-Step:

1. Pull Hair to One Side.

Tip: Start with dry, brushed out hair.

Then renumber for each braid sequence. Remember: 1 over 2, 3 over 4, 4 over 1. Repeat all the way down and tie with a hair tie.

3. Adjust the Braid. Flatten the braid out to see the intricate braiding work.

Tip: Pin your bang back it if is long for a medieval look.
