Step 3

Once the braid is complete, use your thumb and pointer finger to pinch the large strand at the very bottom and pull it out in a fanning motion. Repeat, pulling out the large strands all the way up the braid.

Step 4

Secure with an elastic and pin to hair: lift up a section of hair at the back of her head and secure the end of the braid using two bobby pins crossed in an X shape, then let hair fall over the pins.
