Once you’ve chosen the colors, measure out the length of thread you need. You should estimate about 3 times the length of the braid so that you have enough thread for the entire wrap. When you have your thread ready, tie it in a knot at the top of the braid. You can either tie the knot in the middle of the thread or at the end. Keep in mind if you tie the knot in the middle, then you’ll end up with double the amount of thread to wrap, which might be a good idea if you have thick hair.
Next, pull the thread strand you want on the outside and start wrapping it around the braid and the other threads until you’re ready to switch colors. Work to keep the wrap tight and push up the braid if needed. If you want to add contrast wrap around the outside, then pull those colors out while you wrap the section, then criss-cross and bring together at the end.
