Apply mousse.

Divide your hair.

Now that you’ve maximised your tresses, divide them into 2 sections, from your temple to the back of your crown.

Secure into a ponytail.

Bring your 2 sections together at the back of your head and secure into a loose ponytail using a hairband.

Once you’ve done this, pull your ponytail under and through your ‘loop’, so that you create a twist.
