Get ready for braiding

Take a small section of hair near one side of your forehead. Divide it into three smaller sections



Braid it

Create a Dutch braid. Cross the left section under the middle section, then the right section under the new middle section. Repeat until you reach the tips of your hair. Pin the braid near your crown.
