  • Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair where you normally prefer; I’m placing mine on the far right side.
  • Step 2 / Divide off a section of hair at the crown, lay the left side over the right and pin it against the head with several bobby pins.
  • Step 3 / Now divide the remaining hair into three sections, a left side, right side and a back section.
  • Step 4 / Tie the back section into a low ponytail with a clear elastic band and braid it into three strand braid, securing the end with another elastic.
  • Step 5 / Pull on the edges of the braid to make it fuller and then wrap it into a bun around the top elastic.
  • Step 6 / Slide bobby pins arounds the edges to secure it against the head.
  • Step 7 / Now braid the left section of hair into a lace braid bringing in hair along the hairline and working back towards the bun.
  • Step 8 / When the last section of hair is brought in, cross the braid over the top of the bun and pin it against the head with a few bobby pins.
  • Step 9 / Go back and fan out the braid by pulling slightly on the edges to make it fuller.
  • Step 10 / Now create  a second lace braid with the section on the right side; crossing the side strands over the middle and bringing in hair along the hair line until reaching the bun at the back.
  • Step 11 / Lay the braid over the top of the bun and slide several bobby pins into the braid to pin it against the head.
  • Step 12 / Take the ends from the braids and create small loops at the top of the bun and pin them in place with bobby pins.

    Hi! Ok I LOVE doing hair but my hair is way too thin for anything fun! Do you have any advice or anything to help me get it thicker?

      I would definitely recommend trying extensions (: My hair is thinner after having extensions and they really make a big difference!
