1. Braided + Puffed

Part your hair into six sections (three top sections, and three back sections). Start on one side section with a diagonal part beginning just before the ear, up to the base of the top middle section. Braid small, diagonal cornrows coming from the part that you've created on both sides. Using bobby pins, take sub-sections from the remaining sections of hair, working your way from front to back, wrapping and tucking the sub-sections to achieve the desired look. Secure with bobby pins.

After you've finished the cornrows, re-moisten the rest of your hair and apply your favorite gel or styling cream. Twist your hair into two strand twists. Allow hair to dry overnight or sitting under a hooded dryer on low heat. Once dried, remove two strand twists and fluff them up. Apply pins as needed.
