How to do a french braid hairstyle

There are two things to know about learning how to do a french braid. 1.) When first starting out, use big sections of hair. It is much easier to do it this way. 2.) Practice, practice, practice. It took me The Hair Dad year before he really got it down. That's because he tried doing it in smaller sections and it was too hard.

The Hair Dad shows how to make curls using straws

Here is a video The Hair Dad made to show how to do straw curls. The straws were a buck and the elastics were, too. His daughter didn't complain at all about sleeping with them, so they didn't hurt either. Check out that final look! A couple people said their daughters' hairstyle was ruined when they brushed the hair out. Don't use a brush! Just use your fingers to pull apart the stands, and barely do that. The Hair Dad just used a water spray bottle to mist the hair and dampen it before we curled it. When completed he used a bit of hair spray to hold it. No other products were used.
