How to:

Step 1: Brush your hair and apply some hair mousse to add bounce and volume to your mane.

Step 2: Create a centre parting, dividing the hair into two equal sections.

Step 3: Start French braiding hair from the left section. Braid very close to the hairline and take hair strands as you go on.   

Step 4: Secure the braided hair at the back with a hair tie. Repeat the same on the right section of your hair.

Step 5: Secure the two braided sections at the back with bobby pins and style the rest of your hair in soft curls.

Step 6: Spritz some Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray to keep the hairdo in place and add some shine.
