May Braids: The Medieval French

Here is the first installment in my May Braids series. My acting group is performing Once Upon A Mattress, and the ladies hairstyles have to incorporate braids. This is the style I came up with.

1. Brush through your hair. Gather the top of your hair and being to french braid it. If you don't know how, start with a normal braid, and every time you cross a section over, pull another strand of hair with it, so that you slowly gather all of it as you braid down the back of your head.
2. Continue this process until you have gathered all your hair until the nape of your neck. Once you reach the nape of your neck, pin the braid so that it stays, but the rest of the strands fall down the back of your neck.
3. Curl the remaining strands of loose hair in small pieces.
You can also continue the braid without gathering anymore hair once you reach the nape of your neck if pins fall out of your hair easily.
