Step one: Begin with freshly washed hair and while it is still damp apply some mousse which will help to make styling easier.
Step two: While you are blow dying, back comb the hair and mist over with some finishing spray to tame flyaways.
Step three: Now that the hair is dry apply a small amount of oil through the mid lengths to the ends as this will make the hair much easier to braid.
Step four: Now you can begin braiding. Split the hair into three sections, left, right, and bottom, allowing the parting to fall naturally. Start with the section on the right and form a French braid. It should begin right at the very top of the head and finish at the lower neck. Secure with a clear hair elastic.
Step five: Next, take hold of the section on the left hand side. This should be used to make a rope braid right along this side. When you have finished you can connect this braid with the one on the right, using a clear hair elastic.
Step six: You should have one section of unbraided hair left. Use this to create a regular braid, braiding tightly from the top to the bottom. Fix with and elastic when you get to the end.
Step seven: Take hold of the three separate braids and plait together to make one finished braid. Secure it with another clear elastic. If there are strands which naturally frame the face then gently bend these with hair straighteners. Once you are happy you can spray all over the hair with finishing spray.
