First create a half up hairstyle. I recommend adding hair styling cream in the hair it make it nice and smooth.

1. Simply 3-strand braid the hair all the way down adding a bow on top.
2. Simply add hair elastics an inch or two a part down the section and bubble them out.
3. Simply topsy tail small sections down the hair.

Hair Styling Cream

It’s the one question I get asked the most lately, and I love it. It’s important to make sure you prep the hair before you create a hairstyle. I love to use hair styling cream because I know it will help to keep the hair smooth and shiny.

I prefer using Dae Hair Styling Cream.
