Step 1.  Make a part on the left, then part across the top of the head slightly oblique from ear to ear.

Gather the back section.

Step 2:  Comb and smooth the sides  well and make them stay by going down to the nape and pinning the right section to the left and vice versa.

Step 3:  Comb and smooth the top section and pin across the occipital area by criss crossing your pins.

Step 4: Create soft flat curls that give volume.

Tuck the ends of your pin curls inside each curl and pin into place.

Step 5:  Leave some strands free to personalize your style.
