Juanmy Medialdea reveals the how-to for re-creating his "Freya Viking Goddess" braided hairstyle. 

How-To Twine Interlocking Combo:

  1. Brush the hair and apply a little shine spray.
  2. Separate the front and the sides; collect a section of the crown in a ponytail and deconstruct it a little.
  3. Take a section of the side about 3cm. thick; create a soft cord and join it to the rubber band of the central section.
  4. Repeat the previous step on the other side. 
  5. In the central section begin to make a caterpillar braid with the twine, releasing a small lock from each crossing.
  6. Close the section at about 8cm. with a rubber band, creating a bubble and leaving the interlacing of the string in its center, with the same string circling the rubber band several times to leave it covered.
  7. Repeat the previous step in the next area (8cm.) of the same section; use tweezers if necessary.
  8. Carry out steps 6 and 7 until finished with the length of the entire section.
  9. Take a 3cm. section from the side; make a caterpillar braid in this section, weaving the string along the entire length of the section.
  10. Repeat the previous step on the opposite side.
  11. Take a 3cm. section from each side. In these sections, fuse the caterpillar braid with more bubble and twine and so on until finished with the length of the section.
  12. Add some feathers, wooden balls or twine at the ends for the desired finished look.
