Begin with your hair down. Take a section of your hair from the thicker side of your part, and braid it all the way down. It will lie flat on your head best if you angle it back as you’re braiding it. Next, using a technique Elsie and Sarah taught me here, slightly tug all along the braid, making it appear thicker. Once the braid is complete, pin it on the back/far side of your head underneath the top layer of your hair, covering the bobby pins. Next, braid the rest of your hair into a side braid. Continue with the same process as the first braid, slightly tugging along the whole thing. If it’s really windy that day, add a spritz of hairspray to keep it place.
