Things that will help you:

  • A comb
  • A hair tie
  • Bobby pins
  • A hairspray (optional)

Step 1:

Start off by brushing your hair gently to make it smooth and detangled. Then, grab a chunk of hair from the front using your fingers just like you are making a puff.

Step 2:

Divide this section into three even parts as now you have to start braiding. So, start braiding normally.

Braiding simply is overlapping the side strand one by one on the middle strand.

Step 3:

While braiding, each time you cross a section from one side, take a chunk of the strand from the same side and add it to the braid and repeat the same from another side too. Make sure to take a balanced amount of hair strands to not make it look uneven.

Step 4:

As you go down braiding, all the leftover hair strands should be incorporated into the main braid and there should be no hair left. By the time you reach where no hair strand is left, start braiding normally after then. Braid till the end and left some portion at the end and tie it with a hair tie.

Secure with bobby pins wherever required. Use hairspray if you feel a need to use it.

That’s it, an easy-peasy French braid is ready.
