    1. Apply styling mousse to damp hair to give it volume and optimal manageability (this will make it easier to curl your hair). Apply heat protectant and then blow dry the hair.

    2. Wrap a small section of hair around the rod of your curling tong and wait for a moment to allow the curl to form. Release the section from the curling tong and allow it to cool. Continue curling the rest of your hair.

    3. Once you have curled all your hair, use your fingers to shape the small waves and curls. For extra hold apply hairspray to the waves/curls to keep their shape.  

    4. To achieve this look it is important the hair must has bounce from the roots upward, so apply volumising powder at the roots to create the required volume.

    5. For the braided hair element separate a section of hair from the side at the temple. Then use this section to create a small, very loose French braid.

    6. Repeat on the opposite side of your head.

    7. Finally, loosely gather the two braids and the rest of the hair in the back of your head below the neckline and tie together. Apply extra hairspray for lasting hold.
