Installing Guitar Straps

I have a guitar and I am really new at it.  I want to put a strap on it but where does it go?  How do you put it on?

Thanks,  Ashley

Acoustic guitars usually come with a strap button at the butt end of the guitar but not at the other end, so the other end of the strap needs to be tied with something strong like a leather shoelace to the neck, under the strings, behind the white nut.  I know of one manufacturer that doesn't even put one at the butt end of the guitar on some models.  In that case, I would advise having one professionally installed.  See Tip 48 and Tip 149 for more information on the subject.
