Shakira's lovely french braid is created by drawing new sections of hair under instead of over during the braiding process. Her braid also encircles the back of her head and ends in pretty side plait.
To create her look, begin by gathering three two-inch sections behind an ear. Start to braid, following the back hairline and drawing each new piece under the established braid. When your braid has reached the other side of the head, braid the hair ends and secure in a hair elastic.
