It seems the French invent all the cool things! If you want to braid your hair in a new and stylish way, check out this video.
Besides their kisses and their fries, the French have also got a braid that's perfect for many occasions.
Step 1: Brush hair
Brush your hair until it's free of tangles.
Step 2: Separate into three sections
Separate the hair on the top of your head into three sections.
Step 3: Cross hair
Cross the right section over the middle section, and then cross the left section over the middle section, as you would with a regular braid.
Step 4: Add hair
Gather another small section of hair from the right side of your head into the right-hand section, and cross it over the middle section.
TIP: Keep the braid tight by pulling hair sections and keeping your hands close to the head.
Step 5: Add more hair
Add a small section of hair from the left side of your head into the left-hand section, and cross it over the middle section.
TIP: While gathering more hair with one hand, keep the three sections in your other hand.
Step 6: Repeat
Repeat, adding small sections one by one, until you have gathered all the hair into the braid.
Step 7: Finish braid
Once you reach the nape of the neck, finish braiding the length of the hair.
Step 8: Fasten
Fasten the end of the braid with a decorative band. Spray it with hairspray and show it off.
