Normally I don't get photos of hair styles we try out at home, either because I don't have time or they turn out that poorly. This time I found one to do on my hair that I love because it's easy and I actually managed to take a decent photo.
I can't seem to find where the how-to photo came from so if anyone knows please let me know so I can give credit where it's due. This is all over Pinterest right now but no one seems to have a link to an actual site.
If you'd like to create this hair-do simply follow the step-by-step photo only instead of small strands of hair, braid the sections first. Secure the braid with clear elastic. Then at the very end pull the last section of hair (e) through one part of the braid it goes over so it will sit under rather than over and fall flat rather than sticking out (see arrow). If you secured the ends of each braid just high enough the elastic should be hidden at the very end of your tied knot.
