Divide hair at the crown of the head into three equal sections. Take the left section of hair and cross it over the center and below the right sections, as you would with a regular braid. As you continue, use your index fingers to pull in new pieces of hair to each side section before crossing them. Don’t stress if bumps form—the front will get covered. Once you reach the nape of your neck, secure hair with an elastic, letting the tail hang loose.
