What you need

• Comb or hair brush
• Rat-tail comb
• Hair sectioning clips
• Bobby pins
• Mini bobby pins
• Hair ties
• Multiple ribbons of different colour (blue, red, yellow, green)
• Hair spray

Steps to follow

• First, comb your hair thoroughly using hair brush to avoid tangles or knots in your hair.
• Now, divide out 1 section of hair at the top of your head.
• Use sectioning clips to clip down the rest of your hair for some time.
• Pick up a section of hair near the forehead and divide it into three smaller sections for the braid.
• Start creating a Dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle one and then the left strand under the new middle one.
• Keep adding a new section of hair in your braid every time you cross the strands.
• Continue braiding, until your reach a little down from the crown part. Secure it with bobby pin so that it doesn't unravel while you work on the other braids.
• Now, pick a new section of hair from the right or left part of your head and repeat the same steps to create a second Dutch braid. Secure this too with bobby pin.
• Create more and multiple braids from the rest part of your hair from the top of your head.
• Once all braids are ready, remove the bobby pins, grab all the hair in your hand, and create two side ponytails near your ear. Secure them with hair ties.
• Now, begin with your left ponytail. Divide the ponytail into four parts to make four braids.
• Pick the first part and start creating a normal braid by wrapping the sections over one another.
• Once you reach in the middle of your braid, pick any ribbon and tuck it into your braid using mini bobby pin.
• Then again, start twisting the sections, along with the ribbon, to form the braid.
• When you reach the end, create a knot with the ribbon to secure your braid from unravelling.
• Your first is now ready. Repeat the same to form three more braids from the same ponytail. But pick different colour ribbons to make it look colourful.
• Once all your four braids are ready on the left side, make four more braids from your right ponytail.
• Your hairstyle is now ready. Lastly, spritz some hair spray to ensure that everything is set in place and will last till the end of the day.
