Part hair

With a tail comb, create a straight and neat center part from your hairline up to your crown. This will serve as your guide in creating two braids.

Start braiding

Take a small section of hair on the upper half of one side of your hair. Create a Dutch braid using this section. Braid until you reach just a little past your crown. Put the braid in place with a clip and leave it to work on the other side of your hair.
