  • Begin by pulling the hair into a low ponytail.
  • Section the hair into 3 even pieces.
  • Cross the left section of hair over the middle piece like you would for a 3-strand braid.
  • Take a smaller piece of hair from the outside of the left section and loop it around the ponytail. Then place it back into its original section.
  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the right section of hair.
  • Continue all the way down to finish the braid.
  • Tug on the sections of hair between the zig zags and pancake the braid to make it look fuller.
  • Secure the braid with an elastic.
  • Secure any stray pieces of hair with a bobby pin. TIP: Add a scrunchie or ribbon to spice up the look.
