The trick to get the woven look is to integrate this section into the braid, thus making the initial strand a little bit thicker than its original width. Make a similar section on the other side of the hair, and incorporate this strand into the next braid. Repeat the process of incorporating alternate sections into the initial section till your hairdo is complete. Secure your hair with an elastic band and style it with some colorful pins.
