Make sure you brush your hair well.
Divide your hair in two parts. You can also go for 4 parts to create a more complex-looking style (like Louise Ebel wears it), but I'm gonna go for two today. If you like, you can pick out some shorter strands of hair next to your face and exclude them from the braids. Tie a hairband around the hair. I'm going to take it off after I braid it, this is just to secure that the braid won't be too tight.
Make a loose braid and then take the hairband off.
Put the braid over your head and secure the end with bobby pins. I usually take about three for each braid but you might need more depending on how thick your hair is.
Follow the same steps with the other side.
Flip it over your head again.
Secure it right behind the other braid. That way the braids will cover each other's ends and the bobby pins.
Voilà, wasn't that easy?
I don't know if this tutorial was helpful at all, but in case it wasn't, at least I gave myself an excuse to play with Photobooth on my new Mac.
Anything fun planned for this weekend?
