CFOP is the most used speedcubing method for the 3x3 due to
its simplicity and effectiveness. CFOP stands for the four
stages of solving the cube, Cross, F2L, OLL, PLL. CFOP can
get you solve times of under 10 seconds with practice.
The first step would be to create the first cross.
After the first cross,
in this case, green, the next step would be to solve the first two
of the cube, instead of one in the Beginner's Method (LBL).
This part affects the most when it comes to timing, therefore emphaisis
should be on F2L when seeeking faster times,
When the second layer is solved, the next step would be to solve the top layer. This stage is known as Orientation of Last Layer(OLL)
Final step is to permutate the corners and edges, which would solve the cube.
This stage is known as Permutation of Last Layer(PLL)
Now you have a completed 3x3!

For OLL and PLL there are two main types, 1-Look OLL/PLL and 2-Look OLL/PLL.
It is recommended for beginners to learn 2-look OLL PLL before learning 1-look.
