1. Apply a texturizing product through your hair and brush through, but don't blow dry. You want the braid to look textured and rough without hair getting tangled in your fingers while braiding.
2. Gather a section of hair from the top of one side of the head, and do a loose, simple French braid down towards the bottom of the opposite side of the head. Just pull in a strand of hair from the bottom every time you cross the braid over, don't add any hair from the top.
3. Once you reach the nape of your neck, bring it over one shoulder and split the bottom half of your hair into two halves. Looking in the mirror, take a small section of hair from the outside of the left side and bring it over to the right side. Then bring a small section of hair from the right side, and add it to the left side.
4. Do this all the way down, until you reach the end of your braid, and secure it with a thin elastic. If you have any strands that didn't quite make it into the braid, just let them frame your face -- sexy.
