This is a great way take your basic braid up a notch!
[Gather 1/3 of your hair behind your neck]
[Make a tight braid and secure with an elastic]
[Divide your free hair into 2 sections. Braid the small braid into the other 2 sections. When you reach the end, slide off the elastic used to hold the small braid and use to to secure the new braid. Wrap a small section of hair around the elastic to hide it]
