Step by step:

Step 1.

Start with clean, detangled hair: Begin by washing and conditioning your hair to ensure it's clean and free of tangles.

Step 2.

Part your hair: Use a rat-tail comb to create a deep side part or a center part, depending on your preference. For the Half Fulani braids style, the parting should go from the front of your hairline to the crown of your head.

Step 3.

Create the cornrow braids: Starting from the part, begin cornrowing one side of your hair towards the back of your head. Use small sections of hair and braid tightly to the scalp(you can also use the braiding hair if your own natural hair is not long enough), secure with the rubber band,or incorporating any hair accessories or beads as desired. Repeat this process on the other side of your head, leaving the back of your hair loose.

Step 4.

Apply the clip ins onto the braids to create the natural half Fulani braids style as you desired.
