What You'll Need:
- Bobby pins
- Mini hair elastics
- Tail comb
- Hair clips
Step 1: Using a tail comb, create a front section of hair all the way around your head from ear to ear. Clip back the rest of your hair to keep it out of the way for now.
Step 2: Beginning at one side of your head, French-braid the front section of hair along the hairline.
Step 3: Continue the French braid, adding more hair to each strand as you go.
Step 4: Once the braid is at your ear, continue with a traditional three-strand braid to the end of the hair.
Step 5: Secure the braid with a mini hair elastic at the bottom.
Step 6: Make the braid a bit thicker by gently tugging apart each strand so the weave isn't too tight.
Step 7: Lift the braid up and over your head, flush against the French-braided section, until the end of the braid reaches the opposite ear. See the GIF below for a more detailed view on this.
Step 8: Pin back any extra hair in the front that wasn't woven into the French braid. This piece can be used to cover up the end of the braid if your hair isn't long enough to reach the opposite side of your head.
Step 9: Unclip the rest of your hair and tousle it forward.
Step 10: If you need to secure any parts of the braid, use a bobby pin to do so.
