This is an option for long or very short hair. I sectioned out the part I wanted to braid and clipped the rest out of the way. Begin the french braid just behind one ear. I placed the braid near the part in the hair. I only added hair from the front as I was braiding. I secured it with a small pony tail holder for babies. I pinned this behind the ear with a u-shaped hair pin. Short hairs are trying to escape from the braid and I don't have a solution for this as of yet. Maybe I'll try to slick then down with gel. Adding styling wax before braiding didn't do the trick. Please excuse the odd expression. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)
