Godey's 1861. This is NOT french-braided---Instructions: Divide your hair down the center, then make a vertical part right behind the ears to divide front and back hair. Make a three-strand braid in each of the four quadrants. Criss-cross the two back braids, and pin. Loop the front braids over the back braids, and cross them under the pinned back braids. Pin to secure.

Part hair down the middle then parted it across at ear level to make four sections, two front two back. Braid the front sections higher on head above ur ears secure with a clear band. Braid the rear sections just behind ears. Pin the two rear braids across the back of head tucking the ends other the other braid head. Wrap the two from braids first under (near the nape of neck) then up over the two back braids tucking the ends behind the two back braids secured them with pins the comb.

To do: Part your hair down the middle in back, then twist the hair on each side of the part tightly toward your nape. Hold each twist in place with an elastic at the base of your neck. Hide both elastics with a strand of hair from each ponytail, securing the wrapped strands with a bobby pin (this will also help keep the twists from unfurling).
