This hairstyle was designed by my daughter she asked if I could make french braids that cross in the center. So here it is.
I started with one french braid that in the center I just braided as shown below instead of adding hair (this was because I didn't want bulk in the cross section.)
I also braided all the way to the bottom of each braid.
I then pulled the ends of the braids and folded them up to the base of her head and curled the ends to lay over the braids as shown below.
