Divide hair into sections

Part your hair in the middle and create two vertical sections. Then, take the right section and divide it further into three smaller sections to prepare for braiding.

Start braiding

Create three-strand braid on the right section of your hair. Simply cross the leftmost section over the middle section, then cross the right over the new middle section, and so on.

Secure your braid

Continue braiding until you reach the tips of your hair. Then, tie an elastic at the end of your braid to secure it.

Unravel your braids

Remove your hair elastics and let your hair loose from your braids. Gently unravel your braids so your hair won’t lose its shape.

Finger-comb your hair

Let your waves fall beautifully by finger-combing them gently. You can also scrunch your hair a little to give it some bounce and volume.
