    1. Divide the hair into four vertical sections. One on the right and one left side of the head, then section the back into two halves. Braid the two back sections into a regular braid and secure with an elastic band.
    2. Next, Braid the section on the right into a regular braid and secure with an elastic band. Gently pull on the edges of the braid to make it flat & wide.
    3. With the remaining section on the left side, braid the hair into a French braid until it reaches the left ear. Once you have reached the year, finish braiding the section in a regular braid. Secure with an elastic band and then pull on the braid to make it wide & flat.
    4. Working with the back two braids, take the braid on the right and wrap it upwards. Then spiral it clockwise into a bun with the end of the braid (and elastic) wrapping into the center.
    5. Pin down the edges of the braid to keep it secure. Use as many bobby pins as you need until it feels snug against the head.
    6. Take another braid at the back of the head and wrap it counter-clockwise around the outer edge of the bun created in the previous two steps.
    7. Pin down the edges to secure in place.
    8. Next, take the braid from the left side & wrap it over the top of the bun and around the left side.
    9. Tuck the end underneath the bun and pin with bobby pins.
    10. Take the remaining braid on the left side and wrap it over the bun.
    11. Wrap the braid around the right side and pin the end underneath the bun.
    12. Spray the style with a firm-hold hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
