- Step 4 / Braid the hair towards the left side, only bringing in hair on one side of the braid.
- Step 5 / Continue the braid down the left side of the head, towards the ear.
- Step 6 / Once the braid reaches the ear, braid the section in a regular braid.
- Step 7 / Lay the braid against the head, underneath the hair above it, and pin it in place.
- Step 8 / Curl the ends of the hair with a curling wand or iron.
- Step 9 / Grab a teasing comb and back comb small sections of hair at the hairline.
