Start with dry hair and sweep all your hair to the desired side and divide it into three sections.
Take the section on the left and cross it up and over to place it in the middle.
Take your section to the right and cross it up and over to place it in the middle.
Repeat this technique, switching from left to right, until you get to the ends.
Secure the ends with a hair elastic. To create a messy texture, gently pull on each strand to plump up your braid.
