 Step 1 – the start

Get your hair together and divide it into two equal parts. Comb your hair with a comb for a neat braid. Do you want a casual effect? Then comb your hair with your hands.
For fluffy hair it is best to first use a hair serum before you make the herringbone braid.

Step 2 – grab hair 
Grab a tuft of hair from the outside from the left or right and hit it from the top to the other side. Grab the new tuft together with the rest of that part of your hair and tighten the strand well. Repeat the previous step in the same way, but now from the other side. Keep repeating the steps until you find that the braid is long enough. For a fine herringbone braid, make the tufts as thin as possible. Do you want a coarser herringbone braid? Then make the bait thicker.

Step 3 – the finish
If you find the braid long enough then you can secure the herringbone braid with an elastic band. Spray some hair spray over it so that the braid stays in place. You can of course brighten up the herringbone braid by, for example, putting a hair bow in it or another accessory, it is of course what you like to do in your hair.
