If you know how to french braid, you're golden! I just french braided one side into the middle and secured it with bobby pins. Then I french braided the other side until it met with the side already pinned, and pinned them together!!
whoops.... "Make sure the grooved side of the bobby pin is facing down, against the skin. The ribbing is designed to grip hair and lock it in place, and you will capture more hair with the pin in that position"
