a. Create three strands.
b. Cross the bottom strand over the middle strand.
c. Cross the top strand over the middle strand and allow it to drop out.
d. Gather a new strand from the bottom
e. Repeat and continue.

6. Loosen the braid, fasten it with a clip and repeat on the other side.

7. Cross the two braids, loosen the hair in the crown and secure the braids together with an elastic band.

8. Braid a loose strand, wrap it around the elastic band and secure with a bobby pin.

9. Loosely curl the remaining hair through the sides.

10. Add accent braids, tease the ends and spray with NEVO Super shape.
