Welcome to step number two of Mrs. Rutter's perimeter crochet kinky twists in this that I will be showing you how to do the braid pattern for this hairstyle to begin you want to take a rat tail comb and section the perimeter of your head about 2 to 3 inches wide this will serve as the hair that will be braided individually for your kinky twists and then four more of the hair is left inward on your head you will be braiding all of that hair straight to the back of cornrow braids I will show you how easy it is to link each individual corn braid into one another so that when all of your hair is braided you only have one braid that hangs down that braid will then be tucked right against the last cornrow braids and then you will use your needle and thread to so it down very flatly onto your braid pattern base with this style a couple of things you already have to know to achieve the look you have to know how to braid kinky twists as well as how to do actual cornrow braids all of this information such as the kinky twist DVD and the cornrow braiding DVD can be found on so we will going to doing our braid pattern as I show you how to prepare your hair for this hairstyle okay so now the very first thing were going to do is take our rat tail comb and begin parting about 2 to 3 inches of hair from the perimeter of our hairline so this parting there you see here is what is going to be used to do traditional kinky twists you just want to have just a little bit of hair so you can braid about two to three kinky twists at the perimeter of your hairline and you are simply going to make sure a part pretty even around and you are going to use about that much hair so about this much of your section is what you're going to need to leave all the way around the perimeter of your head once you do that you're then going to braid around your edges or your perimeter hair into one continuous braid so that way it doesn't get mixed in with the hair that's here at the middle of your head you can use duckbill clips to keep the hair contained just like that or you can braid it but once you do that and then the hair that is in the middle of your head will be braiding straight to the back of cornrow braids because that's going to be your crochet braid pattern so just continue to use your comb and part around the perimeter of your head to do first so once you've parted your hair for your perimeter kinky twist as you can see I've rated the braid in a continuous circle if you can't braiding the continuous circle then use duckbill clips to keep your hair sectioned once your perimeter area has been sectioned off now you going to braid the rest of your hair straight back into cornrow braids so I'm just remove the clip here to help preserve my hair and then I'm just want to use the end of my rat tail comp to part my cornrow braid here naturally the braids on the edges will be just a little bit shorter because your braiding straight to the back and you want the braids on his to be a little shorter just because when you're finished with your style it helps that the kinky twists are laying more naturally rather than starting each cornrow braid right here at top of your head allow you cornrow braids to gradually get bigger as you go up and then start to get smaller as you go down on the sides so for the first braid of a part of my section and then you want to use your duckbill clips to help keep your hair section as your braiding and then you just going to braids straight to the back once you finish braiding your first braid you going to braid your second braid and then you take the tail end of your first braid to braid into your second and I will show you exactly how that looks but for now just focus on braiding your hair straight to the back in cornrow pbraid to complete your braid pattern I've left one braid undone so I can show you how when you braid your braids are going to continue to connect each cornrow into another so that when you completely finished you only have one braid that hangs down that you would need to sew down onto your braid pattern so momentarily I also want to stop to explain why you would need braiding hair and step number one one of the supplies was to use a little bit of braiding hair to help you braid your braids the braiding hair is perfect if you have thinning hair thinning edges or shorthair no matter if your hair is relaxed transitioning or natural braiding hair makes your braid stronger and also helps to preserve week or thinning hair so on my hair out and I did not need to use braiding hair I could have I wanted to but I didn't need the extra bulk onto my braid to give me that security but if you have shorter hair or you are afraid that your braids will become fuzzy overtime underneath your install or if have thinning hair I highly suggest that you use braiding hair to add onto your real hair so next I am going to show you how to continue connecting your cornrow braids and then had a so your last braid down to complete your braid pattern base so now I am going to braid the very last cornrow braid show you how to connect it to your final braid and then how to secure that braid down to your braid pattern so as you can see I have I have hair here from my last cornrow braid and I have one braid here even though I have multiple braids in my head the reason why is because every time you braid a braid you connected to this big braid which continues on and leaves only one braid and I'm going to show you exactly how that's done right now so I'm going to do is braid is cornrow braid and connect it here so as the end result I will have one final braid if you want detailed instructions on how to cornrow braid with or without extensions I highly suggest that you go to to purchase the braiding the so for now I'm just going to braiding just to show you exactly how it's done when you're connecting each cornrow braid you want to make sure to braid all of your real hair on this part and then once she's done that you going to take your final braid and add it in as if it's additional hair and just continue braiding once you braid all the way down to the end I'm going to show you how to use your needle and thread to secure your braids before you begin actually doing your style so now I'm going to take my braid and I'm going to tuck it in between space of my last cornrow braid in the previous one right in this space just like that and I'm going to start my first stitch here at the very bottom of both of the braids of my cornrow braid in my loose braid so now to grab my needle and thread that I have prepare and I'm going to go underneath both braid braids pull-through and I'm going to my knotting technique so once you locate your string one open your string up then you want to go around with your needle once, twice and pull through to create your first knot once again go under both braids grab your string into and do my same knotting technique once, twice and pull through continue on to use on the braid flat down against your head so now just coil last bit of hair here is to make sure is very tight secure place it firmly flat down against the braid and sew your last stitch now so now the last thing you're going to do is cut your thread in your braid is if it sticks up just a little bit you don't have to worry about it because as style progresses you will not see any thread or any knots once you finish the base of your braid pattern and unravel your perimeter braid this is how you braid pattern will look for the Mrs. Rutter's perimeter crochet kinky with so now that your braid pattern is complete in the next step, step number three I will teach you how to install your extensions step-by-step
