4. And again, take the left section and cross it over the middle one, combining it with the right section. And you’ve mastered the technique! It may seem a tad confusing at first but with lots of practice you’ll become a french braiding guru. Add more hair from the right, cross it over the middle. Add more hair from the left, cross it over the middle - so easy!! Continue this pattern all the way down.

A helpful tip would be to get a mirror to check the back from time to time.
