Now, I have a little scarf, here, that we just bought at Old Navy, and I have just trimmed it, cut it.
It was like super long and super wide, so we cut it a little skinnier, and a little less long. But, you could use any scarf. So, really, this is something you could wear for everyday, any holiday, anything like that.
Okay. Now, to begin, you are gonna fold your scarf in half and identify where, roughly, the middle is. I'm going to take a piece of hair right here at the top of Brooklyn's head.
And that. Now the scarf is gonna go underneath that. So we kinda need to know.
That's why we need to know where that middle is. You can kinda eyeball, make sure you have got enough on each side. Now, this becomes our second strand.
So, if you look at my hands, I have strand number one, the hair is strand number two, and this side becomes number three. You're gonna position them in your hands like you normally would if you had three pieces of hair, and start adding hair into it like a French braid. To begin, I'm just gonna pick up a section of hair on this right side, and add it directly to the scarf.
And then go ahead and cross this part over that middle piece of hair. This is how we are securing that scarf into the hair. Now you are gonna pick up hair on this left side.
Add it directly into that scarf on the left, and cross it over. And at this point, it becomes a little bit easier because the scarf is already semi-anchored into place. We're just gonna pick up hair.
I have tried to leave a little out by her ears. And I'm doing pretty big French braiding pieces of hair. Like I want it to look sort of like a chunky French braid, not a really soft, tiny, intricate French braid.
(lively techno music) Okay. And when you finish adding hair in, then you have a couple different options. I'm going.
You can do this and braid it all the way down. And then, I will show you what I'm gonna do at the end of the scarf.
Or, if you so choose, you can just braid it like this, and then take the hair and tuck it up in underneath the hairdo right there, up underneath the braid where there's this little hole at the nape of her neck, and tuck it all up and under.
Her hair is so thick that with the scarf, that would be really hard to do. If you have thinner hair, that would be a better option. So, for her, I'm gonna just run this all the way down as far as it can go, and take like a little, just thin elastic that will sort of blend in to her hair, and secure the whole thing.
But then, I'm gonna go ahead and use the ends of this ribbon, or the ends of the scarf, to just sort of wrap it around the hair and tie it off. And let it look like this. And then it still accents a little bit more of the scarf, and that goes through the braid.
So, it depends a little bit on the thickness of your hair, and also the length, on how you want to end it. But this is definitely a good option. Then you can go back, soften it up a little bit.
We want it to look very bohemian and free. And we have our loose little hairs to help with that. And we are done.
Let's do the final spin. I love it. I love how you can see the little stars popping out.
