2. Make a ponytail 

Use a paddle brush to smooth hair back from your temples, pulling them behind the claw clip and securing a ponytail.

3. Twist

Remove the claw clip and separate the hair to either side, recreating the middle part.

Sectioning hair

With 1 section, hold the hair from the root and twist it, gradually moving backward.

Continue to twist the tail, beyond the crown of your head.

Make a temporary twist bun and secure it with an alligator clip so the hair will remain twisted.

Then repeat for another twist with the other section of hair.

4. Cross, make a loop and pull the ponytail through

Ensure that both sections remain twisted while removing the clip. Pull the twists upward and cross them. 

Crossing hair

Make a loop and hold the ends. Then pull the ponytail up, through the loop.

Lean forward to keep the ponytail out of the way and secure the ends of the twisted pieces, underneath the ponytail, with a clear, hair elastic.
