Step 1. Start with second-day or air-dried hair.

Step 2. Lift up the top sections of hair and brush out everything underneath.

Step 3. Wrap your hair around your hand and then pin that loop of hair with bobby pins (opens in new tab). The number of pins will depend on how fine or thick your hair is. Be sure to also pin the loops to the base of your hair.

Step 4. Repeat on the other side.

Step 5. Apply a light mist of hairspray to keep flyaways at bay.
