Double Braid Headband - Spring Style Countdown #7
1- Start by parting the hair on the side and then also do a horizontal part from the side part to the ear. Make it pretty high up on the crown, approximately where a headband would sit.
4-Once you have 3 or 4 plaits of the braid done, begin adding small sections from the hair as needed to incorporate it into the braid. This is similar to French Braiding but you will only be adding from the left side.
I add the section to my leftmost strand, bring the left to the middle, then right strand to the middle. Add new section to the left strand, left to the middle, right to the middle, add new strand to the right... Repeat this process until there is no more hair to add and secure temporarily with an elastic.
6- At the bottom, blend both front and back sections into one new braid and secure at the bottom with a tiny elastic.
7- Leave that strand for now and move to the other side of her head. Mist the hair to help with fly-aways and smooth a section of hair from the front of her head to the ear. Separate this section into 3 strands and braid normally down the length of the hair.
