How to French Braid Your Own Hair - 1. Start by taking a section from the top of the head. Separate this section into 3 strands crossing right over middle and then left over middle, as if you were doing a Basic Braid.
3. You can now gather a small even section from the right side of the head with your right hand and add it to the right strand.
5. Now switch hands keeping all strands separate, so your left hand will be free.
7. You will now bring the left strand over to the middle and bring the middle section to the left. As you follow these steps, try to keep your hands close to the head so the braid will be tight.
8. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until there is no hair available to add. Finish style with a Basic Braid and fasten with an elastic.
