Step 1: Prep the hair with R +Co Dallas Thickening Spray ($28), focusing the product at the roots.
Step 2: Separate the top portion of your hair into three sections. Keep one portion on top of the head and two on the sides above the ears.
Step 3: Create a Dutch braid, or inverted French braid, on the righthand side. Tie off with an elastic at the end and let hang.
Step 4: Repeat the step for the middle portion of hair. Tie off with an elastic and let hang.
Step 5: Continue the same step for the lefthand portion of hair. For extra pizzaz, we tied colored elastics at various portions throughout the length of each braid.
Step 6: Take the three braided sections and braid together using a simple three-strand braid technique.
Step 7: The three braids should be weaved together and tied off in an elastic. Section the remaining unbraided hair into three sections: two on the sides and one in the middle.
Step 8: Take the left portion of hair and twist inward across the head. Pin off behind the right ear with a bobby pin.
Step 9: Repeat the previous step with the righthand portion of hair and pin behind the left ear with a bobby pin.
Step 10: Take the remaining section of hair and split it in two. Twist one portion of hair.
Step 11: Take the twisted section of hair and wrap it around the last hanging portion of hair.
Step 12: Tie off the twist with an elastic. Add colored elastics to the twisted tail to add color.
Step 13: Fatten up the braids by tugging at them gently and loosening them up.
Step 14: Enjoy your rockin' braid from all angles!
