Step 01: Brush your hair to get rid of any knots. Then, reach for your curling iron to create soft waves. The wavy texture will only add more glamour to your hairstyle

Step 02: Start by tying your hair half-up and creating a topsy tail ponytail. A topsy tail ponytail is where you create a hole in the centre of your ponytail above the elastic band, take the tail and pull it up and through the hole. In order to tighten it, give it a good pull

Step 03: Now, grab a section of hair on each side of the ponytail and cross them over each other as though you’re creating an “X”

Step 04: While crossing from one side to the other, keep adding a new section of hair

Step 05: Continue making an “X” until you reach the end. Leave two to three inches of hair and secure it with a clear elastic band
