Brush your hair, and split it into two equal sections.


Take a strand from underneath one of the two sections, pass it over the top, and add it to the other section.


Repeat this on the other side (you should start to notice a cross shape appearing at the top of your plait).


Continue these steps until you reach the end of your hair, always using the same sized strands taken from underneath each section to make sure it looks equal.


For the best plait, make sure you spend time pulling the strands tightly.


If you want to create a 'wild' look, gently pull the plait apart on each side to give it a looser finish.
