2. Comb the hair well and take a wide strand from the forehead. Tie it with a thin elastic band, preferably matched to the hair color.
3. Take two strands on the right and left sides (their volume should be approximately equal to the volume of the first strand). Put the right strand over the main one. Then cover it with the left strand.
4. Braid your hair like regular pigtails, grabbing a part of the loose hair with each throwing of the strand. When the braid is finished, tie the tip of it with a rubber band. Done! Nothing difficult, right?
