- brush or comb
- 2 mini hair ties (they look like orthodontic rubber bands and come in large packs for less than $2 at drug stores)
- 6-10 bobby pins
**The braids will be different widths – you want this.
Step 3: Take the thicker of the braids and place across your head. Secure the braid in place with a bobby pin (or two if you need it, but you’ll add more later). Here you can choose where you want to place your braid. Feel free to bring it closer to your face or farther back (I like mine in the middle).
Step 4: Take the smaller braid and place it in front of the thicker braid (closer to your face). When placing it, be sure to cover the edge of the thicker braid (the rubber band and the tail). Tuck the tail and rubber band of the thinner braid under the thicker braid and secure with bobby pin. The goal here is to pin both braids next to each other while hiding the rubber band and tail of the braids. It might take a few extra bobby pins to complete this step
Step 5: Add bobby pins to secure the braids. Add as many as you feel you need, but I generally use 5 – 7.
