Instructions
1. Divide your hair into two main sections. The first section is the area of hair from the forehead to just above the ears. The second section is the remaining hair from the ears down to the base of the neck.
2. Divide the two main sections into four even sections by parting hair directly down the center of the scalp.
3. Start with one of the bottom two sections of hair, near the base of the neck, and braid a three-strand braid as close to the ends of the hair as possible.
Secure the end with a clear ponytail holder. Loosen braid slightly by pushing the braid upwards with your thumbs and downwards with your fingers. This creates a fuller look.
4. Repeat step #3 with the three remaining sections of hair.
5. Once all four sections are braided, loosened, and secured with clear ponytail holders, take the top two braids and cross one braid over the other. Pull to tighten on the back of the head. Tuck the ends under the braids and secure with bobby pins.
6. Take the remaining two bottom braids and repeat step #5. The bottom braids will lie directly below the first section of crossed, secured braids. Tuck ends under braids and secure with bobby pins. Use additional bobby pins to tidy up and secure any loose ends.
7. Take the two decorative hairpins and insert into the hair just above the ears to complete your new Boho look!
