Step 1: Seperate

*Works on dry or damp hair* Brush out the hair completely so that there is no tangles. Separate the hair into two equal sections as shown

Step 2: Cross Over

Take a section of hair from behind a larger section and cross it over the top. Combine it with the other section of hair as shown. Then do the same for the other side, crossing it over the first strand and adding it to the opposite section

Step 3: Keep Going

Continue crossing and adding. Make sure to hold the hair tightly as you do for a better looking result

Step 4: Tie It Up

When you reach the bottom or when you run out of hair to add and cross over, tie with a hair tie. Secure any loose strands with bobby pins if needed. Hair spray lightly for a stronger hold :)
