Part the hair into a middle part. Make these super straight because it will add to the overall effect of this hairstyle.

You are going to pull the hair into super tight pigtails. Make sure to smooth the hair down. You can make high pigtails, low pigtails, or middle pigtails.

Step 3: Braiding

Braid the pigtails. You can do fishtail braids, 3 strand braids, or anything else. I chose fishtails because I think they look the coolest.

Step 4: Pancake the Braids

Step 5: Make the Buns
