Step 1: Begin with clean, dry hair in whatever texture you want it for the hairstyle. I kept my hair in its natural texture and to make the look more messy and bohemian I also teased it a bit.

Step 2: Take about a 3 inch section from the middle of one side of your head.

Steps 3 and 4: Braid the section that we just grabbed and secure with an elastic at the end.

Steps 5 and 6: Repeat the same process on the other side.

Steps 7 and 8: Place your index finger on the inside of the braid and pull it across your forehead to the other side. Placing your index finger here will help keep the braid flat and get rid of any ugly bumps that can occur when positioning braids.

Step 9: Secure the braid in place with a bobby pin.

Steps 10 and 11: Do the same thing with the braid on the other side.

Step 12: Adjust the braid to your liking and pin away any parts that seem out of place. Spray with a bit of hairspray and voila!

Step 1: Begin with damp, freshly washed hair. You can apply a curl enhancing mousse at this point if you would like, but I chose not to.

Step 2: Begin sectioning off your hair, beginning with the bottom third section.

Step 3: Using a medium sized round brush, blow dry your hair as usual.

Steps 4, 5, & 6: Using a small round brush, brush a 1-2 inch section of hair out from underneath and begin wrapping it like a curling barrel once you reach the bottom.
