Step by Step

Step 1: Apply Xtra Large throughout damp hair. Working in small sections, blow dry hair then wrap around a roller. Set with Style on Steroids and let cool completely before removing.

Step 2: Create a half-up ponytail, then clip it out of the way. Create a second mini ponytail underneath. 

Step 3: Release the top ponytail. Make an opening and flip the ponytail under itself to create a twist. Then, pull the lower pony through the opening to sit on top.

Step 4: Use a curling iron to shape your face-framing pieces and bangs.
