REPEAT ON OPPISITE SIDE
Now take the remaining section and twist it back into a loose bun and secure with a hair pin.
SECTION FROM EAR TO EAR
Use the comb again to section your hair from ear to ear at the back of the head. Use a sectioning clip to pin the top half of your hair out of the way.
SPLIT THE BOTTOM SECTION IN HALF AND CREATE TWO TWISTED BUNS
Divide the bottom section of hair and create a twisted bun on each side of your head. Secure in place with hair pins.
RELEASE THE TOP SECTION AN SPLIT INTO THREE. REPEATTHE TWISTED BUN TECHNIQUE ON EACH SECTION
Remove the sectioning clip and release your hair. Split it into three equal sections and repeat the twisted bun on each.
USE A DIFFUSER TO WORK AROUND THE HAIR
RELEASE THE BUNS AND SHAKE OUT INTO LOOSE WAVES
Take out all the hair pins and use your fingers to shake out your locks into waves.
TILT YOUR HEAD BACK AND RUN YOUR FINGERS THROUGH YOUR HAIR
Dress your waves by tilting your head backwards and running your fingers gently through your hair.
FLIP THE HAIR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION ON THE PARTING
To encourage height at the front, flip the front in the opposite direction of your parting.
RUB A FINGER-SCOOP OF DRY WAX THROUGH YOUR HAIR
For extra texture, apply a finger scoop of dry wax into your hand, and rub it backwards and forwards through your hair.
