1 // Part the crown of your hair (all the way around). Pin it up on top of your head to get it out of the way.
2 // Make a bun with the top portion of the remaining hair. (If your hair is thin consider backcombing/teasing first)
3 // Make a bun with the bottom portion of the remaining hair. (if your hair is thin consider backcombing/teasing first) Pull to loosen the 2 buns. I like a slightly messy look.
4 // Take down the crown of your hair.
5 // Back comb/tease the crown of your hair. Select a small amount of hair to stay out near the front/side of your face.
6 // Roll the hair down to your scalp. Adjust the shape of the twist if you need to.
7 // Secure the twist with a few pins on the side.
8 // Take the last small piece of hair and twist it.
9 // Continue twisting the small piece of hair into a coil bun on the side of your head. Then secure with pins. This coil bun can be a focal point near your face. You just feel it out. and figure out what shape looks cute by your face.
10 // Spray with hair spray. I like the Hard Head hair spray by Bed Head.
*NOTE* If you have thin hair then back comb /tease the under side of your hair for every step. Then smooth the top if necessary. (photos by Janelle Marina)
