Step 4

Add texture to the hair with a spray, like Avedas control force working it in.


Step 5
Begin at the hairline, and create a French braid down the back of the head. Braid loosely to maintain volume.


Step 6
Roll the braid up and under, and hide the ends by tucking them away. Secure with bobby pins.


Step 7
