STEP 3: CURL THE TOP OF THE HAIR
Let down the top section and curl in the same way as the bottom sections.
STEP 4: BACKCOMB AND CURL THE FRINGE
Backcomb the fringe behind the hair, then curl away from the head.
STEP 5: BRUSH OUT THE CURLS
Once the curls have cooled brush them out, brushing the front section back.

Add a little texturising dust to the roots and rub it in. This should give you a bit of extra volume. Finish the look with a bit of hair spray.

Take two small sections of hair from the lower half, each just behind the ear and make a plait from each. Wrap these over the top of the head and secure with pins and a spritz of hairspray.
