Split your hair into two and clip it.
Start making cornrows with a zigzag pattern.
Place your latch hook under the cornrows.
Divide the synthetic hair you have purchased into two sections.
In the half section, attach your crochet hook to it and pull the crocheted hook up. This will form a loop.
In the other half, pull through the created loop and make a knot.
Continue until you have finished through the full scale of the hair.
If you’re losing your hair and want to substitute it with synthetic hair and add more beauty to your appearance, this is the ideal hairstyle for you.
