Step 1: Grab Your Section

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.

Step 2: Braid Your Section

Now braid your section. If you don't know how to do a basic 3-strand braid, check out this Instructable by my fellow cosmetologist, LadyLola44

Step 3: Cross Your Braided Section Over Your Head

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!

And that's it! As the title implies, this is a very easy hairstyle to accomplish, requiring minimal tools and time.

Thanks for viewing, and I hope you enjoy your look! :)

    i tried it but my hair is too short to cross over and my brsiding isnt very neat

    hah, always thought you'd need to be a serious hair expert to do that sort of thing...or just cheat and get a fake hair headband xD
