This works best if the hair is wet. Take a small section of hair at the base of her head.
Take another small section of hair on top of the one you just did. Make 3 equal parts and do the same step make a twist in each of these.
Then take the front of her hair and make a side part. Pull the hair down to her ear and put a twist through them one on each side.
Pull all of the hair into 2 pigtails then take half of each of the pigtails and secure together and twist them.
