STEP 1

To begin, divide your hair into two sections at the back of your head and secure one away with a hair elastic. For this look, you’ll be french braiding under instead over (so the reverse of how you would normally would) to help keep the braids flat against the head. We’ll be using the same technique we used in this braid tutorial.

STEP 2

Start braiding all the way around the crown of the head and down towards the other side. When you’re doing braiding, use bobby pins to keep the braid in place!

STEP 3

Using the other (non-braided) section of hair, repeat the process going forward and to the other side of your head, wrapping the new braid on top of the old braid. Pin everything in place when you’re done!

STEP 4

Finish it off with a touch of medium-hold hairspray to keep everything in place without feeling crispy.
