Prep and Part Hair

Step 1

Comb hair to make it as straight and smooth as possible.

Step 2

Using the comb, create a slightly off-center part on the right side of your head.

Step 3

On each side of your part, separate hair into two horizontal sections, leaving out a few 1/2 inch strands of hair around the front of your face and ears.

Step 4

Pin each section with a clip to keep them separated.

Braid the Top Section

Step 1

Divide the top right horizontal section into three small subsections.

Step 2

Begin French braiding the three subsections, stopping after the third round of picking up additional strands of hair.

Step 3

Finish the braid as a simple three-strand braid until you reach the middle of the back of your head. Secure with a clear ponytail holder.

Step 4

Repeat on the opposite side.

Braid the Bottom Section

Step 1

Divide the bottom right horizontal section into three small subsections. French braid hair until it's in line with your ear.

Step 2

Using the same braid, transition into a waterfall braid until you reach the middle of the back of your head. Secure with a clear ponytail holder

Step 3

Repeat on the opposite side.

Curl Hair

Step 1

Spray hair with a light layer of hair spray.

Step 2

Using a curling iron, curl hair around your face and ears in loose, vertical spirals.

Step 3

Continue curling the remainder of your hair, starting with the ends and curling until about 1 inch from the scalp.

Step 4

Set hair with another layer of hair spray.
