Steps:
1. Give yourself a deep side part. On the thicker side, grab a 3″ section of hair and start french braiding, ensuring the braid is parallel with your part.

2. Once you’ve reached 2/3rds of the way, continue to braid as usual, tying off the ends with a clear elastic

3. Pull all of your hair, including the braid, into a side pony tail. Tie off with a clear elastic and remove the elastic on the braid.

4. Using a comb, backcomb your side ponytail to create tons of volume and texture.

5. Gently twist into a loose bun. You don’t want to twist too tight as you want your bun to be loose, full and textured. Pin as necessary using bobby pins.
