2.) Simply braid all the way down and fasten with a hair-tie similar to the color of your hair to blend in.
3.) Repeat steps 1&2 for the other side.
4.) Thoroughly back comb the section of hair behind the braids to create lift and fullness.
5.) Pick 1 braid at a time, wrap around the back and fasten with bobby pins into the teased section of hair.
