Step 1. Brush hair over to one side ensuring that everything is smoothed out.

Step 2 and 3. Then, add several bobby pins (opens in new tab) to hold your hair in place to the side. Make sure the pins are almost vertical with the mouth part of the pin facing upward.

Step 4. Next, take your hair and twist it upward (opens in new tab) and tuck the end of your hair back into the twist part.

Step 5. Finish the look by adding more bobby pins into the twist to secure. Make sure you add one pin every 1-2 inches to firmly secure.
