Part your hair to one side, grab a strand of hair from the top of your head and divide into two sections.
Place the front strand over the back strand, adding a little more hair to each strand.
Repeat steps till you braid all the ay down and tie into ponytail. Do the same thing on the other side of your head.
Tie all your hair together in a ponytail, wrap a strand of hair over the elastic and secure with bobby pins.
