Put hair in low hanging ponytail and separate hair into equal sections, braid each section and tie end of braids. Loosely twist and pin braid up using bobby pins. Adjusting as needed. Repeat with other braid. Decorate with flowers or bows.
Sailor's knot braid: Four strand braid. 1) Divide hair into 4 sections and number them 1-4 from the left. 2) #1 over #2, #3 over #4. 3) #4 over #1. 4) Re-assign the numbers so that the section on the leftmost (originally #2) becomes #1. 5) Repeat from step 2. Love this braid!
