Twist wrap the hair around the barrel twice, keeping a straight end for a modern look. Hold for 5-8 seconds.
step 6: Repeat steps 4 and 5 but go below the hair
On the next section, repeat this technique but place the wand below the hair so you wrap in the opposite direction, creating a beachy finish.

step twelve: Repeat until opposite temple, then go into simple braid
Do this until you reach the opposite temple, then go into a simple three strand braid adding no extra hair.
step thirteen: Hold one strand at bottom, push the rest upwards
At the bottom, hold onto one of the strands tightly, then push the rest of the braid upwards to create a more interesting ‘snake braid’.
step fourteen: Tease braid until desired

step fifteen: Take end of braid to back, secure with two grips
Sweep the end to the back and secure below the crown with a grip. Using 2 grips to create an X will give a more secure hold.

Take the area previously clipped up and allow it to fall naturally and cover the grip at the back.
