What you will need:
Step 1: Separate your hair into two equally sized parts like you would if you were going to wear pigtails. Be sure to follow your natual hairline.
Step 2: Start braiding a french braid from the very top of your crown to about 1 or 2 inches before the end of your hair. Start off losely and then tighten the braids on your way down. Repeat with the other part that you divided. Tie the braids at this point with an elastic hair tie.
Step 3: Don't braid your french braids too tight! The braids should be tightened lightly at the beginning. You also want some of your hair strands to fall loose and for them to hang at the sides of your face.
Step 4: If needed you can use some hairspray to keep your braids in place. You could also use some bobby pins.
