To start this style, get out your rat tail comb and divide the hair in half from ear to ear. This pic is on the BACK of the head.
Then divide the top half in half
Divide each of those halves in half. Make sure you are slipping off these sections to keep them from getting mixed up!!
Last time divide each of those halves in half so the front will be in 8 parts
Now we are focusing on the TOP of the head this will be the left side first 2 parts
Divide those parts into three sections for a total of 6 boxes
Then braid like so. When going from one box to another you will need to braid about three extra stitches in between without picking up and additional hair. When you get to the end of the section just braid it out.
As you can see here I ended up giving up and braiding the sides straight back, you can do that if you like...I just did it because she was so tender-headed and I couldn't torture her any longer!
