How to do Freddy My Love’s perfect gym look

Secure the side sections with hairbands, this is will keep your hair out of your way while you braid.

Start your Dutch braid.

Now it’s time to begin your braid!

To create your Dutch braid, start by taking an inch worth of hair near your forehead. Divide it into 3 equal sections and cross the left strand underneath the middle strand. Then cross the right strand underneath the new middle strand.
