  • Hairspray

How To Style

  1. Brush out all the knots and tangles from your hair.
  2. Part your hair down the middle.
  3. Continue parting your hair till the nape of your neck so that your hair is divided vertically into 2 sections.
  4. Holding each section in each of your hands, tie them into a single shoelace knot at the back of your head.
  5. Take the tail of the section of hair hanging on your right and twist it right till the end.
  6. Roll this twisted section into a circular bun around the knot and secure it to your head with bobby pins and U pins.

  • Comb
  • Hair elastics

How To Style

  1. Spritz on some texturizing spray all over your washed, dried hair.
  2. Horizontally divide your hair into 2 sections.
  3. Tie the top section of hair in a rough bun to section it away.
  4. Tie the lower section of hair into a mid level ponytail at the back of your head.

  6. Backcomb the hair at the crown of your head to give it some volume.
