Step 3

Divide and braid!

Take a small section of hair from one side of your part, divide it into 3 equal pieces, and begin a reverse French braid (Ed’s note: a.k.a. a Dutch braid) by wrapping alternating strands from each side under the center section. Make sure to add hair to the outer sections with each rotation.

Step 4

Repeat and pancake!

Continue braiding until you reach the end of the style and then repeat on the other side. Use your fingers to gently pull each braid apart to create a ‘pancake’ effect. Finish by securing the braids together at the back of your head.
