Here, we breakdown how to create the look at home using just a few simple tools and techniques.

Things You'll Need

Tips

  • Always curl away from your face for the most flattering look.

Tease hair at the crown using a comb. Be sure to leave a few face-framing stands loose.

Twist and pin the teased section of hair back. Use a clip to hold the non-teased section of hair separate from the top section, if desired.
