Has anyone with SL hair been able to pull this off? I'm sure there are, but guidance and tips would be helpful. Even on doing a side-braid of any kind.

My hair is thick, a little bit BSL, but mostly SL, with 3c ringlets. I can't figure out how to do this style----when my hair is dry, it's almost impossible to sleek down to one side (though two might be possible), and when my hair is wet, I'm terrified of damage.
Hair Type: 3c/4a, Coarse, Med-High Density, Med-Low Porosity
