  • Divide the hair in half vertically from top hairline to nape.
  • Beginning at the hairline, begin braiding, feeding in the hair from the sides to keep the braid close to the scalp.

  • Return to the top and gently widen and loosen the braid, pulling on the sides.
  • Repeat on the other side.

Happy yellow hair color brings the mellow to this lazy, half-and-half braided hairstyle.

  • Beginning at the hairline, start braiding the hair, feeding in sections from each side.
  • Secure the braid just above the round of the head.
