Nonetheless you feel fancy for hairstyles which are easy to make and wear.

  1. Wash and brush your hair thoroughly before making this braid.
  2. Take one very small hair section from the right side and divide it in three parts. Cross the first loop over the middle and cross this new crossed loop beneath the third hair loop. You will get one stitch. Complete several stitches until you reach the end of that hair section.
  3. Repeat the process 2 on the other side of the head. Take one small hair section from the left and make a small, sleek braid on three hair strands.
  4. Now cross the right braid over the left side and pin it up to secure its position.
  5. Cross the left braid over the right side of the head.
  6. Both braids will overlap each other. You need to pin them correctly to maintain the style.
  7. Finger brush your waves on the bottom hair.
  8. If some hair is straying in the middle of the braids you can set it using brush and some gel.
  9. Use hair spray to fix your braid in its condition.
  10. You are ready to step out now. For a little decoration, you can use hair accent in the middle or anywhere on the braid.
