Intro: French Braid.
This is an easy hair-style that can be varied in many different ways.
This is a common and very popular hair style.
I hope you like it!
Step 1: Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You will need a comb, an elastic, and your two hands :)
Step 2: Step 2: Comb Out Your Hair
Make sure that your hair is detangled before you begin. Trying to french braid hair that has knots is not helpful.
Step 3: Step 3: Divide Hair Into Three Sections.
Take a small piece of hair from the top of your head and divide into three sections.
Step 4: Step 4: Begin to Braid.
You can start with either side but I started on the right. Begin to braid by crossing over one section from the side into the middle, followed by the next section from the opposite side to the middle.
I started with the section on the right first and crossed it over into the middle.
Step 5: Step 5: Gather More Hair.
Since I started with the section from the right and crossed it over to the middle I used my right hand to gather some more hair from the right side of my head. This hair will be used to add to the braid as I continue to french braid. I drop the section that is now to the far right and will combine it with the new section of hair that I have just grabbed.
Step 6: Step 6: Repeat on Opposite Side.
Now cross the top section from the left over to the middle. Using your left hand, get a new section of hair from the left side and combine with dropped section of hair.
Step 7: Step 7: Continue Down the Head.
Continue getting sections down the head. Cross over another section from the right to the middle, then grab a new section on right and combine with dropped section. Then, cross over a section from left to middle, grab a new section on left and combine. Continue all the way until you have no new hair left to grab from the head and continue with a regular braid.
Step 8: Step 8: Fasten With an Elastic
After you've finished braiding the rest of the hair, tighten the end of the braid.
