what is the propar way to string a guitar?

Where there is slack between the head and bridge so the string wraps around the tuners, or where the string is tight between the bridge and the tuners. I hope that makes sense. TIA

ok then the way i would do it is this
put the string through the stop bar and string it through the tuner give it soem slack i usually do about an ince and a half to two then i bend the excess string (thats past the tuner) up. wrap the string around the tuner under the part that you just bent up and proceed to tighten the tuner. this is not a must but i usually make sure that the string keeps going under the loop above it. hopefully you understand what i typed if not ill try better or someone else can
