This is a little bit fiddly but it is actually straightforward once you “get” it. It’s hard to explain in steps so I suggest you look up a video tutorial on youtube to see best.


  • 1 elastic
  • 1 bobby pin, stretched out


  1. Section of a portion of hair around the top part of the crown from the top of the left eyebrow to the right ear. Tie it up out of the way.
  2. Braid the remaining section of hair as normal.
  3. Take the bobby pin and insert it through the top section of each part of the three stranded braid.
  4. Take a section of loose hair, pinch it to form a small loop, then pass it through the eye of the bobby pin. Gently pull it through the braid while keeping your finger in the loop to maintain the "bow" structure.
  5. With the tail end of each bow, pass it behind the braid. Continue with more sections of hair and more parts of the three stranded braid.
  6. Finish up with the remainder of the hair and secure with an elastic.
