Brush your hair and make sure it is smooth and without tangles. Use a little hair spray and comb through the lengths of the hair. Secure the hair in a high ponytail with an elastic band and wrap a thin section of hair around the base to hide the elastic.

Section the ponytail into two equal parts and twist them both in the same direction. Now wrap the two twisted section around each other in the opposite direction. The two sections are twisted in a direction that is opposite to the direction in which the braid is twisted (refer to the above picture to understand better). This will create traction and hold the braid in place.

When you come to the end, leave the last 1 inch loose and secure it with an elastic band. Spray a final time to tame all the flyaways and add a finishing spray for a glossy shine.
