Part slightly damp hair on the right side. Optional: add a little mousse or gel to keep hair intact and to prevent flyaways. Next, take about a two-inch chunk of hair from the front of the right hairline, and begin a french braid.
To start a french braid, section this portion of hair into three even strands, keeping them separated with your fingers (whichever ones feel most comfortable to you). Now, start a normal braid; take the right strand and cross it over the middle strand. Next, take the left strand and cross it over the middle strand.
