French Braiding; this is a skill that a lot of people do not know how to do. Today I’ll be showing you an easy way to french braid that will only take about 15-minutes to do.


Step 1: First, you will need to gather your supplies. The things you need are a hair brush, rubber band, hair ties (depending on how long your hair is get as much as you think), bobby pins (just in case you have hairs sticking out in places), and the last thing you need is hairspray so the hair style will stay in place (optional).


Step 2: Next you brush your hair thoroughly so that there are no tangles or knots in your hair. Start at the top of your head, there you will gather two even pieces of your hair and tie it with a rubber band. After that, flip the piece of hair in the space between the piece of hair and your head. A little tip:it works better if you showered beforehand.


Step 3: After you do that, you create another piece of hair like the 1st one but instead of skipping the 1st “braid” you incorporate it in the 2nd piece of hair that you are creating now. After that you spray just a bit of hairspray (optional) to keep it in place.


Step 4: Repeat 2-3 steps until you entire head is done or when you think it’s good enough for you. After you have your desired length you pin your hair with some bobby pins in places that you need to. After that you spray your hair with hairspray and you’re finished.
