1 Brush your hair back and split it evenly into two sections.
2 Starting from the right section, take a piece of hair from the outermost part and cross it over into the inner part of the left so it becomes part of that section of hair. Tip: Hold your thumb in the middle where you're crossing your hair to keep it separated.
3 Keep repeating this until you have about two inches of your hair left. Tie your braid off with an elastic.
