Follow our simple directions to do one of the prettiest long hairstyles.

So, let's start!

To create one of the loveliest braided hairstyles, first, part your hair and let one of the sides to be heavier. Now concentrate on a section from that heavier side. Divide this big section into three smaller sections. Now it is time for crossing the strand from the back over the one from the middle and then the strand from the front over the one from the middle. Then the strand from the back should be crossed over the one from the middle. Incorporate one more hair section to get a French braid.

Not difficult, right? Moving on...

Again, the strand from the back should be crossed over the one from the middle and one more hair section should be incorporated. However, now drop down the strand from the front and take a hair section just behind this particular strand rather than crossing it over the one from the middle. To replace the strand that was dropped, cross the section taken from behind over the one from the middle. Next, the strand from the back should be crossed over and one more hair section should be added.

Now what?

Now step 2 should be done again. That is, drop the strand from the front and replace it from behind.

Next, keep braiding like in step 2 and 3 till the back of your head. Then switch the braiding style to a regular three-strand and braid thus down. Pin this regular braid part against your head. Now hide the pin by laying some hair over its top.
